Tina performs and teaches under the name Kalila. She originally trained in indian dance (Bhangra and Bharatantyam) before learning belly dance from the best teachers she could. She is now teaching and performing full time. Kalila performs as part of the 'Sisters of the Desert', a group of teachers that perform together.
Tina was involved in the formation of the Ethnic Arts Forum, a listing of dancers, drummers and artists from all ethnic groups. She is also involved in other dance forms such as west african, Tahitian and salsa.
