About Ruby:
Ruby is one of the most innovative Turkish-style bellydancers taking the stage. Her passion for bellydance has taken her to Turkey where she intensively studied Romani (Gypsy) dance as well as Turkish Oriental and Folk dancing. She is widely recognized for a raw, untamed and passionate dance-style that is uniquely her own.

Performing with power, grace and agility on stage, Ruby has won numerous titles, most notably that of Bellydancer USA in 2009.
In addition to being a multi-award winning performer, Ruby is featured in a line of instructional videos and performance DVDs. She is featured in the popular “By Dancers for Dancers” series, “Bellydance Power and
Passion” performance DVD and “Combination Nation” instructional. She also stars in her own instructional series by Cheeky Girl Productions, which includes “Flawless Floorwork,” “Totally Turkish” and “All About Arms.”

When Ruby is not charming audiences worldwide, selling-out workshops or producing top-selling bellydance DVDs, she teaches weekly classes and performs in Santa Cruz, California.
