Sitri Sophia is a Fusion and Gogo Dancer from the Twin Cities in Minnesota. They aim to invite audiences to peer into unseen worlds through out-of-the ordinary experiences. They hope to inspire others to have the courage to be more wholly themselves. Sitri also has the pleasure of being a Fusion Bellydance and Zumba® instructor through Dragon’s Lair Performing Arts.
Fusion Dance Roots and Training
Sitri laid their dance roots in goth club nights in the Twin Cities in 2007, spending long nights on the dance floor. They began formally studying MENAT-inspired dance (which at the time was commonly called Tribal Fusion Bellydance) in 2016, and has trained relentlessly since. In addition to training under a variety of excellent teachers around the St. Paul and Minneapolis area, supplemented by travelling around the Midwest for instruction, they have also pursued a range of online instruction. Sitri values cross-training as a way to deepen stylizations, and as a way to explore new ways to personify music and tell stories. To date, they has trained in multiple dance forms under the “bellydance” umbrella, as well as dabbling in a wide array of vaudeville artforms, hip hop, Latin dance, and others.
Sitri as a Gogo
Sitri has the extreme pleasure of gogo dancing at Bondage-A-GoGo at Ground Zero in NorthEast Minneapolis. They love getting to promote a fun, energetic, accepting atmosphere through dance, in the company of a really great group of people. Sitri is available to dance elsewhere, too. While the bulk of Sitri’s gogo experience is with dark and hard music, they can get down to nearly anything. Use the Contact Form to get in touch!
