Shelly has been belly dancing for 15 years. She met Amy Sigil at the Rush Park Rec center in Sacramento, CA during her 1st session. Amy was substitute teaching the day Shelly locked her keys in her car, forcing the two to spend some extra time together…they found they had several common interests and a love for athletics that has kept the two dancing together ever since. An original member of UNMATA traveling and teaching around the world, Shelly is a scientist by day, a loving mother and girl who is ready to love, laugh and dance! Shelly teaches weekly at Hot Pot Studios in Sacramento, CA.
