Teaching belly dance is a labor of love for Aeron.She began to dance as part of a physical recovery from a fibroid surgery back in 2009. Pilates, yoga or traditional belly dance were recommended forms of healing - “I always wanted to try belly dance and here was the perfect justification - and have been with it ever since. One of the things that brings me joy is to see people leave their insecurities at the door and engage in this beautiful, healing dance form,” Aeron states.

She has been married for 30 years and is a mother of two, while her passions and interests are in playing the harp and hand drumming, cross stitching, and helping people with physical/medical disabilities enjoy dance!

It warms our hearts to hear Aeron state why she loves our studio, “Source studio is nurturing.The space is welcoming and the people are even more welcoming. It's a true place of gathering, so much so, that people want to stick around and chat. You don't find that everywhere. Lauren has done a beautiful job in creating and maintaining this little slice of peace in busy Riverside.” We happy to provide a space of fun and creativity!
