Erin Gillespie


Erin Gillespie has been twirling and whirling since she was old enough to twirl and whirl. She saw her first belly dance performance at the age of 12, and was inspired. Erin has been learning technique for the last 7 years, starting with traditional, but quickly switching to American Tribal Style and Tribal Fusion. Being transient for most of the last 7 years, she has learned and performed with many formats and troupes. She started taking BlackSheep format in Maui with Rebecca and Dhyana Raja; studied and performed with Zira and her Gypsy Rogues in Austin; studied and performed ATS and Tribal/Circus Fusion with Bella Rouge and Red Sands Tribal in Grand Junction, Colorado. She's also been known to throw in a solo here and there. She currently lives in Austin with her husband and two children, studying on her own, twirling and whirling in her kitchen.



Zira is an internationally known Middle Eastern Belly Dancer. Her alluring grace and charismatic artistry capture the essence of the dance. Zira’s understanding of dance is credited to the many teachers with a range of styles and influences. She has traveled the world cultivating her form of expression and fell in love with the beauty that is American Tribal Style Belly Dance.
