I am one third of the dark, theatrical, fusion dance company, The Accaliae. The Accaliae bring together passion, steadfastness and serenity to create a dark, theatrical side of belly dance. Along the way they have entranced innocents, battled creatures of the Underdark, re-birthed civilization and invoked the elements.

Haley began her dance training in her home state of New Jersey. With a focus in ballet since age four, she continued her training attending summer intensives with The Rock School, Saratoga Summer Dance, and The Mercyhurst Dance Experience during which she was blessed to work with Bruce Marks, Melinda Roy, Ashley Bouder, and Eva Szabo. Haley graduated from Mercyhurst University cum laude in 2012 with a BA in Dance and a minor in Arts Administration.

I'm interested in: what defines a body? How do our bodies relate us - to each other, the world? My training and experience includes a wide breadth of contemporary, improvisational, and adaptive styles, with a childhood foundation in ballet, jazz, and modern dance. I have studied with integrated companies such as AXIS Dance, Stopgap, Candoco, as well as individual teachers, choreographers, and experienced performance mentors. My performance history ranges from yoga studios in small Vermont towns to Danspace St Mark's in New York City to festivals in the UK and Germany. I am available to teach - dance topics, adaptive strategies, and more; to perform; or to engage in the creation of new work.

Yvonne can’t remember a time when she wasn’t listening to music. Raised on the 331/3 RPM records of her pianist mother, she knew at an early age that music and movement should go together. Already exposed to classical music and popular American musicals, she began to explore the international options at her local public libraries. In almost no time, she became captivated by the music of the Mediterranean, the Middle East and India. However, she still knew that there were types of specific dances related to the musical cultures of these regions and that she had to find them. Fast forward to the late ’80’s when Yvonne began to study Raqs Sharqi (Egyptian Style Belly Dance) and attend recitals and haflas around her native home of Washington., D.C. Having an abundance of experienced professional dance teachers in the area allowed her to study and perform Raqs Sharqi, Classical Persian, Middle Eastern Folk dance and folk dances of Uzbekistan. Dancing under the state name Sekhmet, Yvonne believes that her inspiration as a dancer truly emerged when she began to study Danse Orientale (Turkish Style belly dance) with acclaimed...
