Elise is a tribal and theatrical fusion bellydancer based in beautiful Portland OR. Elise’s love of theatrics is sprinkled throughout her performances, which might include aspects of burlesque styling, echoes of ancient goddesses, or the soul of a haunted windup doll. She has been dancing since 2003.
