Full artist bio
Jacqueline Lemoine began her belly dance career in 2000, when she began studying under noted international dance instructor and performer, Maria Barannco. Jacqueline gained an instant appreciation, talent, and what some might call an obsession, with Middle Eastern dance.
She has trained extensively in Egyptian, Turkish, Lebanese, American Cabaret, and Tribal Fusion techniques. Jacqueline teaches her students not only the rich history and various styles of belly dance, but also the physiology behind the dance's serpentine moves.
Additionally, Jacqueline began studying Polynesian dance in 2009, which she now teaches and performs, as well. She continues to train daily as she believes a truly great teacher should never stop learning.
To date, she has studied under many notable stars in the world of Middle Eastern, Tribal Fusion, and Polynesian Dance, such as Ruby Beh, Zoe Jakes, Dusty Paik, Mira Betz, Mardi Love, Rose Harden, Khalima Sirosky, Moria Chappell, Cory Zamora, Kami Liddle, Petite Jamila, Tamalyn Dallal, Amar Gamal, April Rose, Michelle Sorensen, Bozenka, and Rebecca Manadic.
In June of 2008, she formed the belly dance troupe, Pandorium, composed of her most dedicated students. Jacqueline and Troupe Pandorium perform frequently around the Gulf Coast region.
