Returning in All of Her Glory, to Rock Your Socks Off !

Please help us Welcome Back the Beautiful Songstress
Sarah Monroe

Sarah
Native American and Celtic influence
runs through the veins of this woman. 

So the deep love of elemental nature
that sent this woman on a course  at a very young age
that  included music, song and all things elemental
seems quite natural. Now, some 30+ years later
she can be found playing guitar, flute or drums
that sing a song  of nature to all things.
When she sings, all that she is comes
through her voice no matter what the song.
When she summons the elements,
fire flows in the form of poi and
she is one with the elements.
This is Sarah.

NC and surrounding areas.

hip-hop and a variety of other modern and Middle Eastern influences.
Sarah offers both Tribal Fusion and ATS® private lessons.

A former gymnast, Sarah was inspired to start American Tribal Style®
Bellydancing in September of 2008 after her friend Teejei took her to see

Sarah was asked to join Moonsister Bellydance Company and began performing
