Kaeshi Chai is a world-fusion bellydancer and teacher trainer who co-founded the professional dance company and school, Bellyqueen, and also PURE (Public Urban Ritual Experiment), a global community of artists focused on empowerment and social change through dance and music. Kaeshi has performed and taught extensively internationally, and is an alumni member of the Bellydance Superstars, Jillina’s Bellydance Evolution and Kenji William’s Bella Gaia. One of her all time joys is dancing to live music.
In addition to her years on stages from Las Vegas and beyond, from 2007-2017 she curated the weekly Djam Under Jebon event for dancers and musicians to create and play together in the East Village of NYC. She teaches at the Bellyqueen School of Dance, leads creative labs using Sprint methodology to create full length theatrical dance shows in 3-4 days and curates an annual PURE Conference.
Her mission is to develop bellydance as a stage art and explore its powerful, healing properties.
