Blair Logan is a World Fusion Bellydancer who has been teaching and performing for over a decade, and enjoys dancing with/for audiences, large and small. She has training in a variety of dance styles, with an emphasis on Tribal Fusion bellydance, Hip Hop, Swing, and Polynesian/Hula, which she commonly incorporates into her performances.
Her early instruction came from a handful of dancers in Montana, including Aniysa, Rosa Rose, Heather Ellesworth, and Geneva Bybee. Since then, she has primarily trained with Zoe Jakes, April Rose, Stacey Lizette, Amy Sigil, and Ashley Lopez, but also has some formal training in ballroom and ballet. She has performed at several bellydance and music festivals, including Austin Bellydance Convention, Migrations, Bayou Belly Fest, Hullabaloo, LYME, Fringe Fest Missoula, and Synergy Fest. She currently teaches within Austin, and travels outside of Austin and Texas to teach workshops on dance and body conditioning.
Her style ranges from light and joyful, to ethereal and mysterious, engaging audiences with her fluid movement and soulful dancing. This can be attributed to her early influences, as well as how she connects to the music (live or canned) and with her audience.
Austin has a magical music scene, and Blair often has the chance to collaborate with local musicians. including Kev Bev, Atlas Maior, and Our Suns--often as a solo artist, but also as a cohesive group, incorporating ITS at performances with her Rose Movement Studio colleagues.
She currently teaches in and around Austin, beginner to advanced classes/workshops, and occasionally travels out of state to teach, perform, and generally engage in as many of the awesomely wonderful bellydance communities that she can!
