Lisa Allred was introduced to bellydancing in 2004 by her twin sister, Terri. Soon thereafter she started attending classes with Dawn Ruckert and fell in love with ATS. The group format, challenging improvisation, shared leadership, and beauty resonated with her in a profound way. The universal language of ATS has allowed her to dance with others from around the world and to make so many new friends. She serves as the Assistant Director of Dayanisma and also dances professionally with Terri. Lisa is also a licensed clinical social worker with over 20 years experience working with children, families, and communities.
