Hello, my name is Kae Montgomery. Back in 2000 when I got first hooked to belly dancing, there were no teachers in my home town in Japan so I had to learn as much as I could through videos and DVDs. Although I would consider myself an excellent student, I eventually needed to learn from the masters. So in 2007 I packed my dreams, determination, and a bit of belongings into two suitcases and moved to San Francisco to study directly under the creator of American Tribal Style®, Carolena Nericcio, and FatChanceBellyDance®. In 2009 I was invited into the original FCBD® professional troupe and taught and performed all around the US and in over 20 different countries.
Now I live in East Palo Alto where I perform locally and teach in local gyms and out of my lovely home studio. One of the greatest gifts dance affords all of us is a chance to connect. I love turning a room full of spectators into participants. I love sharing my passion with my hardworking students and seeing them not only improve their dance techniques but also gain confidence and a growing love for the dance. Going forward I will continue sharing my passion and continue connecting with this beautiful dance community.
