Kelebek is the Turkish word for butterfly, the universal symbol of growth and transformation. This name was given to Kelebek because it symbolizes everything she strives to achieve through belly dance: growth and transformation; as well excellence, creativity, and inspiration.
Kelebek began dancing a long time ago as a child in Brooklyn, New York. However, she did not begin studying belly dance, near, and middle eastern music until 2006. Her first studies were in both Cabaret and Tribal. Since then she has gone on to study various fusion and ethnic styles of belly dance to further enhance her dance technique as a fusion belly dancer. She has studied with such re-known local and international instructors as Belladonna, Artemis Mourat, Tempest, Tarik Sultan, Michelle Devine, Kami Liddle, Saqra, Nancy Ahmad, and Elisheva. In addition to long term continuous studies, she is a workshop and intensive fanatic.
Her overall style combines American Cabaret and Modern Tribal with Hip hop, Latin, and Burlesque; which create fantastic fantasy performances. Just to keep things interesting, she frequently performs as four distinct personas ranging from Cabaret fusion to Caribbean fusion. These personas embody the different aspects of her personality. She can be seen performing at events throughout the Northeast in addition to her home states of New York and Pennsylvania. She is widely known for her joyful, emotional performances, and natural sassy stage presence; as well as her technique and stunning, original costuming.
In 2009 she began teaching weekly lessons in Berlin New Jersey, and monthly workshops in central and southern New Jersey while continuing her own intensive studies. She was also the events writer for Phillyraqs.com. In 2019, she began teaching private lessons and workshops in Plumsteadville and Doylestown (both are located within Bucks County, PA).
