Chloe by ?

The Gilded Serpent presents...


Chloe started dancing with jazz and tap at age ten. She came away from this experience with the ability to shred t-shirts and attach beads to them and also convert any choreography into parade format. At age sixteen, she watched some friends belly dancing at the intermission of their high school's production of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. Entranced, she began classes with their teacher, TerriAnne Gutierrez (Zaina Zahesha), the next week and plans to belly dance until she dies. Chloe has also studied khatak, Middle Eastern drum, and hip hop.

Influences: TerriAnne Gutierrez of course! Fifi Abdo, Suhaila Salimpour, Orit Maftsir, Dahlia Carella, Shoshanna, and Jodi Waseca, Unmata and Damage Control Dance Theater. Cheesy dance movies, competitive cheerleading, Korean pop videos, b-boys and girls, post-apocalyptic movies and novels, steampunk, childbirth.
