Marla has been dancing with Gypsy Horizon since its beginnings in 2008. In 2009, she completed her General Skills Certification from Carolena Nericcio. Having experience with other styles of belly dance, Marla felt most moved by American Tribal Style. She was instantly drawn to the interaction with the other dancers and the style of clothes and music. Coming from a non-dance background, Marla continues to enjoy the challenge of creating emotion and expression through improvisational dance with a group of women.
