Elizabeth Joy Morlani ~ Founder and Boston, MA Regional Organizer ~ Founded in 2012
Elizabeth Joy’s belly dance debut was at eight years old at her uncle’s wedding, where her mother made her perform in front of a very intimidating crowd of distant relatives. Despite the rocky start to her dance career, Elizabeth finally found her way back to Middle Eastern dance classes in 2007. Elizabeth Joy has performed at many diverse venues both as a solo artist, and as a member of various troupes. She is currently a proud member of Alwan Dance Ensemble.
Elizabeth Joy has a passion for collaborative projects. She believes that you learn a lot about yourself when you are creating with others.
When she’s not performing, Elizabeth is an industrial textile designer, a begonia collector, and a pickling enthusiast. She firmly maintains that all outfits can be improved upon with the addition of a cardigan.
