I NagaSita is a Temple Tribal dancer based in Nevada City CA, having just relocated from Portland Oregon where she has lived for the past 13 years. A lifelong performer with her youth spent in Hawaii DSC_5091-004dancing 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 Kashmir Shaivism at the Rudrananda Ashram in 2002, where she learned ancient ritual practices from Tibet and India. She found the dance to be just as liberating as the spiritual practices of the east, and has continued on her path as a yogi, performer and priestess ever since. 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.
