Audra has been teaching belly dance since 2001, and is the Founder and Artistic Director of Toronto’s The Dark Side Studio. Her work is known for pushing boundaries, and her classes for pushing her students. When the pandemic hit, she jumped into teaching live online, and took the opportunity to continue to develop her creative skills by studying dance film making. In the spring of 2021, the inaugural launch of her course The Online Dancer: capturing and editing a dance film quickly sold out and received 100% rave reviews from participants. She has also assisted numerous dancers with private projects, several of which have been accepted into shows and curated online performances.
