Cat Bruce started dancing at her grandmother's dance studio when she was 2 1/2 years old. Taking ballet, tap and acrobatics, she progressed on point by age eight. She was teaching ballet baby's by age 11 and ran the Ruth Wood School of Dance by age 16. She was clogging from age 8-18 dancing with her Mom and performed at Church Street Station. Cat has performed in the Arabian Knights dinner show in 1997 and worked in entertainment at both Universal and Disney and has performed in their parades and shows.
Her love of tribal dance is why she began teaching Tribal Style Belly Dance in Winter Garden with her new troupe, "Tribal Muses". Tribal Muses was founded by Sherry McDonald in 2005 and Cat is very honored to have Sherry still be a part of this wonderful group. Cat looks forward to sharing her love of tribal dance with you and hopes to see you in class soon!
It all started in 2003. She started Belly Dancing with Angela and moved into the love of TRIBAL, taking ATS (American Tribal Style) classes from Lacey Sanchez.
She then became a part of Blue Caravan Dance Troupe and a year later began dancing with Black V, a tribal fusion troupe, performing in both companies for over 2 years.
She has performed Tribal -Con as well as taking workshop classes with Zoe Jakes, Jill and Rose from Ultra Gypsy, Mira Betz, Blue Lotus, Racheal lazarua - Soto and Awalim Tribal Dance. Cat has also attended workshops with Amy from Unmata and Sashi from Ascend and has taken private classes from Olivia and Oola from Zafira and Rachel Lazarus-Soto.
Cat also has an interest in the Tabla and has taken drum lessons with Nivek from Teribus.
Recently Cat had the opportunity to travel to Puerto Rico to teach. She also had the opportunity to travel to Seoul Korea in 2007 with Lacey and they were guest performers for their diner show and assisted with her workshop.
Private classes & coaching available.
