“I am not the fuel nor fire, but the spark. The darkness in light and a light in the dark”
A founding member of international art collective, Black Lotus Kult, Kindle utilizes many different styles to celebrate the spiritual, sensual and unusual through her art, with a primary focus on dance and movement. Since 2002, she has held audiences captivated by fire performance, using poi, fans, and fire palms. In 2005, during a move to Sacramento, she found herself fall in love with the experimentation and fierceness of belly dance ignited by instructor Amy Sigil. In the time since, Kindle has received intensive instruction in this art from world-renowned masters, and has traveled all over the country enjoying and sharing this dance with others. She was recently awarded 1st Place Pro Fusion Dancer at the 2019 Orlando Belly Dance Convention.
Kindle performs at events coast-to-coast, and offers lessons around Nashville, TN.
