Adelaide Marcus is a microcosm of artistry! She owes much of her creative energy, innovative stamina and sense of empowered-self to her belly dance practice. Having learned from her mother, who danced throughout pregnancy, this “womb dance” is quite literally Adelaide’s birthright. To Adelaide, sharing belly dance and sisterhood honors the antiquity of the dance. Historically, women learned and explored belly dance as a rite of passage, from rejoicing in the first blood drops of fertility to the helping the body and emotions through the transition into motherhood, and honoring the process of menopause. Belly dance is a lifelong practice AND celebration.
Adelaide celebrates much of life through dance. She quickly made her way into the spotlight after graduating high school and moving to San Diego in 2005. Although she obtained a degree in psychology, entertainment became the obvious career path, which she passionately pursues daily. “The Shimmy Sisters” dance company, co-created with her blood sister, was her launching pad to becoming an international performing artist and distinguished teacher. Adelaide’s entrepreneurial and artistic abilities meld in a way that’s uniquely her own. Her passions are her professions, and include fire dancing, snake charming, mermaiding, modeling, painting and much more!
Adelaide has been flown across the world repeatedly to share her gifts. She has appeared on multiple reality TV shows, modeled for companies like SONY, produced numerous events/shows and taught countless classes. All of these experiences are a reflection of the immense effort Adelaide is willing to put forward. Teaching is one of the ways Adelaide feels she can give the most, while simultaneously filling up her own cup. By teaching, Adelaide actively re-creates ceremonial passages missing from our society today, she helps others feel more radiant and confident in their bodies, and in doing so the bond of sisterhood and our connection to the eARTh is strengthened. Adelaide will dance her way to the grave, but not without a trail!
