NagaSita is a Tribal Nouveau bellydancer based in Portland Oregon. A lifelong performer witth her youth spent in Hawaii dancing Kahiko with the Hula Halau gave her the perfect foundation for bellydance and an affinity for sacred interpretations through movement. Tribal bellydance became her true calling which she began practicing just after relocating to Portland Oregon and simultaneously dedicating herself to Trika yoga at the Rudrananda Ashram in 2002. As one of the pioneers of ritual performance in Tribal Bellydance today, NagaSita thrives in sharing her connection with the divine feminine through dance and by creating elaborate offerings in honor of the Goddess.
