About

Dancer, Creator, and Long-time Traveler

I've spent the last two years lucky enough to be making my living teaching dance workshops around the world. From European cities to Canadian cities and all over the United States where I live. I've lived out of nothing but a suitcase and dance shoes while traveling from town to town in these last two years like a dance gypsy.

If you want to see a video of me dancing, check here below. Everything I do is all improvised on the spot, my partner and I are communicating with our bodies what we want to do next in every moment:

I learned a lot about traveling light, carrying only what I absolutely needed to keep me happy and do my job. However, one thing that I really missed was being able to make things with my hands. I started making braided T-shirts after looking at some YouTube tutorial videos, and pretty soon began coming up with my own designs and concepts quite naturally. I started selling them while I was on tour teaching, and pretty soon opened this Etsy shop.

For me, the allure of working with braided clothing is the beauty of negative space. The space in which the skin can breathe, tantalize, even seduce. The body is a living art. In every piece, I feel like I am telling a story. I decide what is going to be revealed and what is not. For me, it's about creating an illusion and teasing the imagination so that the eyes can almost see the whole picture... but not quite. I find the mystery of what is hidden from view just as intriguing as what is shown completely.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Either hand-wash your DanceWeaver garment. Or, place your garment in a mesh laundry bag for delicates and wash on a gentle cycle. Afterwards, simply air-dry.

The mesh laundry bag keeps your DanceWeaver garments protected from zippers or other things in your laundry. Air-drying prevents the garment from shrinking.

Will my braided creation unravel or come apart?

Each of my braided and woven creations are hand-sewn at the ends, ensuring long-lasting wear and tear. If for some reason your garment has unraveled or come undone, please contact me so that I can help replace/fix your garment.

Sizing details

If you are in-between sizes, then I would most likely recommend the size up, just because the weaving can tend to make the garment just a tiny bit more snug.

Of course it also depends on your preference for how you like your clothes to fit on your body. Some people prefer a more relaxed fit, and others a more snug fit.

If you order an item from DanceWeaver and it turns out to not be the right fit, you are welcome to either return or exchange the item as long as it wasn't a custom order. Check the return policy for more details.

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I do make custom orders sometimes depending on what you are looking for! Please send me a convo and I'll see if I can create what you're wanting :-)

Can I return/exchange my DanceWeaver item?

If you are interested in a return or exchange, please send me a convo to request the return/exchange. I'll send you the address to send it to :-)

Items must be return in it's original condition, and buyers are responsible for the return shipping costs.

Custom or personalized orders cannot be returned. Thank you!
