Megha is the Director of Devyani Dance Company and Co-Director of Tribal Pura International. She administrates the Sister Studio Continuing Education program and Advanced Teacher Training programs offered by Tribal Pura International, a division of FatChanceBelllyDance®.
Megha began performing very early in life. She took her first dance classes at about the age of four and has been creating and performing ever since. Theatre soon caught her attention and that was her passion throughout her schooling years. It was in 1996 that she discovered American Tribal Style® Bellydance and immediately shifted her focus to this art form. In San Francisco, Megha studied ATS® with the originator of the style from 1996-1998. Upon returning to the Southeast, she began teaching ATS® classes in order to create a community of people to dance with. She was the first to offer these classes in this region and has continued teaching pure ATS for the last 18 years.
She continues to teach and perform at sold out workshops across the country and around the world both individually and on the Tribal Pura International tour with her teacher/partner, Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman. In 2003 Megha completed teacher certification with Carolena Nericcio (creator of ATS® and founder of FatChance BellyDance®) and entered into an exclusive partnership with her. They now take their love and appreciation of this elegant dance style in its original form on the road to co-teach the technique and artistic vision created by Carolena over the last 25 years.
