We love you Megha. Thank you for the gifts you've given the world. Your legacy lives on in every dancer that's had the privilege of learning from you.
Megha began performing very early in life. She took her first dance classes at about the age of 4 and has been creating and performing ever since. Theatre soon caught her attention and that was her passion throughout her schooling years. It was in 1996 that she discovered FatChanceBellyDance®Style (formerly known as American Tribal Style®) Bellydance and immediately shifted her focus to this art form. In San Francisco, Megha studied FCBD®Style with the originator of the style from 1996 - 1998. Upon returning to the Southeast, she began teaching classes in order to create a community of people to dance with. She was the first to offer these classes in this region and has continued teaching pure FCBD®Style for the last 21 years.
She continues to teach and perform at sold out workshops across the country and around the world both individually and on the Tribal Pura tour with her teacher/partner, Carolena Nericcio. In 2003 Megha completed teacher certification with Carolena Nericcio (creator of FCBD®Style and founder of FatChance BellyDance®) and entered into an exclusive partnership with her. They now take their love and appreciation of this elegant dance style in its original form on the road to co-teach the technique and artistic vision created by Carolena over the last 20 years. Megha directs Devyani Dance Company.
Under her direction, Devyani has performed at countless festivals, weddings, corporate events and private parties and has been nominated for multiple cultural and artistic awards. Megha is also the administrator of the FatChanceBellyDance® - Tribal Pura International Sister Studio Community and Continuing Education Program (WWW.FCBD.COM)
