Michiyo is a certified advanced FCBD®Style instructor.
From the first time Michiyo saw FatChanceBellyDance®Style (FCBD®Style), she knew it would become a life passion. What more terrific way to respect the years of pleasure than to dedicate herself to perfecting not only the form but the teaching of the dance so that others may learn the fantastic experience which is FCBD®Style.
Michiyo became so entranced with Middle Eastern Music that she took her first Bellydance class in 2001. She continued her study of both Folkloric and Oriental Bellydance after moving to Sydney, Australia. In late 2006 she discovered FatChanceBellyDance®Style that has since become her lifetime passion. Armed with a referral by Devi Mamak (Director of Caravan Dance Company) relocated to the USA in 2007, she began to study at the FatChanceBellyDance® studio in San Francisco.
Through the experience be part of the FCBD® troupe member and the studio instructor, now she is collaborating with FatChance® Continuing Education instructors to teach FCBD®Style General Skill Certification course and dancing at Tessera Dance®.
