Karianne is just as comfortable in a coin bra as she is in bedlah; as skilled with a sword as she is with a cane; and as knowledgeable about the history of Belly Dance as she is its many forms and genres. Experimenting with dance styles since she was a young girl, Karianne’s strength is in her versatility, musicality, stylization and elegant blending of Tribal and Orientale as well as Folkloric.

A dedicated student of Belly Dance for over 18 years, Karianne has been a professional performer, teacher and choreographer for 11 years. From beautiful solo taxims to breaking down the basics for students, Karianne advances a “label-free,” “all-inclusive” style of Belly Dance, and encourages students to explore many different styles and express themselves within all parameters of the form.

Karianne teaches and performs throughout Pittsburgh and the U.S. She also collaborates with local artists and musicians for performances, gala shows and student exhibitions. Karianne continues her education regularly with well-respected Belly Dancers including Lisa Zahiya, Zahra Zuhair and Maria Hamer. She attributes her love of the art form and skills to her teachers Christine Andrews, Olivia Kissel and Maria Hamer.

Karianne invites you to join in a class or workshop or consider a private booking. Coins, sequins, tassels, feathers…all are welcome!
