Heart and Hustle: Visionary Healers, Movers, and Shakers  Episode #52  with your Tribal Hostess, Paulette Rees-Denis, 

and guest bellydancer and director, Christina King

I am diving into the bellydance world to bring you Christina, a fantastic and gorgeous dancer I have known for many years. So fun to see her development in her dance world as well as supporting other dancers in the global community, including myself and Gypsy Caravan!

She has built her dream dance business, having her own studio, as well as cohosting an annual festival, raising her son, and expanding her vision. We have an inspired conversation about the love and hustle of running our own businesses while maintaining passion and having a life!

…What keeps her dancing and what she does to take care of herself outside of her work and dance life…so good!

Enjoy the chat, lots of laughs, and have a giggle with the animal chatter too…leave your comments and share this conversation with your friends!

Thanks for being here, my friend, and for being part of my wild and wonderfully inspiring Heart and Hustle tribe!
