Lorralei was lured back to belly dance when her passion for dance was rekindled with her introduction to gothic, industrial and tribal fusion styles. Over time she has continued to experiment with the theatrical, world fusion flavours, and dimensions of emotional expression. Lorralei has a love for collaborative dance work, and cofounded Mandragora which is the banner she works under with collaborative projects, her own unique combos as well as her solo work. Performances and choreography range from fabulously theatrical to raw and emotional. She is an intense and engaging performer not afraid to take risks. Lorralei is a firm believer that this dance is for everyone and that you never stop learning, and she brings this philosophy to her classes.
