One of the original founders of Zuut and an instructor at House of Hips, Mandy has been belly dancing since 2004. During that time, she has studied with many of the top belly dancers in Buffalo, WNY, and throughout the world. She holds a BFA from Daemen College where she learned to express herself visually through art. Always learning and looking for new movements to add to her belly dance repertoire, Mandy takes her inspiration directly from the world around her; from video games, sci-fi movies, martial arts, football, and anything else. The stage is one of the few places where she truly feels like herself.
