Kountdown Day 43: Elise

Karavan Studio | GBDAC2016 | 80-day Kountdown | Elise
Meet Elise, one of our former Karavan Studio belly dancers.

"I started taking classes with Karen in the early 1990's. Starting with Set El Hussen to El Hob KouLou in GBDAC 2002 when I moved to Spring Branch.

I have been a freelance graphic designer for over 20 years and currently am the graphic design/composition artist for Action Magazine. I also work full time as a ranch hand at the Rebecca Creek Bed & Breakfast in Spring Branch near Canyon Lake, which I love.

I am a single mom, to my 16 year old son, Ian. I was three months pregnant with Ian when I performed with the Karavan in their 1999 KRASH performance at Jump Start Theater.

Karen is awesome! I absolutely loved dancing with the Karavan Dance Troupe. Once I found my rib muscles there was no stopping me! Participating in the Kollage, seeing the video of Habibi, and relearning my little part, reminded me how much work and fun it was to be a part of the Karavan Dance Troupe."
