GeneralMeaghan Shields is an enthusiastic initiate to the world of professional dance and performance. As an emerging artist, Meaghan has focused her dance training in the last three years on the movements and traditions associated with bellydance.
Building on thirteen years of training in classical ballet, Meaghan has studied bellydance primarily under the tutelage of her mentor Roula Said of Om Laila Bellydance (Toronto, Canada). She has also received intermittent training from internationally acclaimed instructors from New York to Cairo.
Meaghan has performed professionally for the past two years at private and public events both as a soloist and as a member of The Roulettes bellydance troupe. As an instructor, Meaghan has taught many workshops in Ontario and British Columbia (Canada) and was also the creator and former choreographer of the Om Laila Student Troupe.
Meaghan has also studied Ashtanga Yoga, Nia, Hip Hop, Jazz, Afro-Caribbean dance and ecstatic (free) dance, all of which inform her methods of teaching bellydance.
