CAITLIN PRINCE first fell in love with Belly Dance in 2007 when she saw her friends performing around Santa Fe. She started taking classes in 2008 at the community College with Diana Felton and later joined a local dance company, Mosaic. While there, Caitlin learned both Oriental and Tribal styles of Belly Dance.
Being more drawn to Tribal style dance, she continued her dance practice by starting the 8 Elements Program with Rachel Brice in 2013 and is now an 8 Elements Practitioner AND Certified Instructor!
After 6 years in Santa fe, Caitlin was honored to join Albuquerque troupe, The Desert Darlings! She’s had the pleasure of joining them at the Las Vegas Belly Dance Intensive and will have the pleasure of joining them at Jamballah NW this year. She’s honored to be teaching at Sirena World Dance Studio; please check website for class times.
