Step by Step with Megha
Join our dear Megha in this headdress tutorial.
Originally filmed as a Facebook Live for her Patreons, Megha sent us this video a few months before her passing so it could be shared here on fcbdU.
Megha passed away from breast cancer in October 2020. We are so grateful to have her courses here on fcbdU so the world to continue learning from her. We love you and miss you Megha.
Megha began performing very early in life. She took her first dance classes at about the age of 4 and has been creating and performing ever since. Theatre soon caught her attention and that was her passion throughout her schooling years. It was in 1996 that she discovered FatChanceBellyDance®Style (formerly known as American Tribal Style®) Bellydance and immediately shifted her focus to this art form. In San Francisco, Megha studied FCBD®Style with the originator of the style from 1996 - 1998. Upon returning to the Southeast, she began teaching classes in order to create a community of people to dance with. She was the first to offer these classes in this region and has continued teaching pure FCBD®Style for the last 21 years.
In 2003 Megha completed teacher certification with Carolena Nericcio (creator of FCBD®Style and founder of FatChance BellyDance®) and entered into an exclusive partnership with her. Under her direction, Devyani performed at countless festivals, weddings, corporate events and private parties and has been nominated for multiple cultural and artistic awards.
