CARMINE T. Guida
Terri came to study belly dance after a head injury left her unable to work or take care of her family. Her physical therapist suggested taking a dance class to help with dizziness and balance. When she walked into her first belly dance class, she knew she was home. Having grown up dancing ballet and jazz since Kindergarten, she was immediately drawn by the control and fascinated by the abandon of belly dance. She has studied Egyptian, Turkish, Lebanese, Persian, Indian, Hula, and Polynesian dance ultimately landing firmly in American Tribal Style®.
She is a FCBD® Sister Studio, the owner of Third Eye Tribal and Third Eye Tribal Consulting in MN and the Business Consultant for FatChanceBellyDance®. She is also the Program Manager and Advertising Director for The ATS® Magazine published by FCBD® and the Coordinator for ATS® Homecoming. She has recently published a book, “I Belly Dance Because: The Transformative Power of Dance,” and an instructional DVD, “ATS® with Props: Veil, Fan, and Basket.” Follow her reflections on life and dance via her Third Eye Tribal blog with sister, Lisa Allred.
