In 2008, Joany Gauvreau founded Feminicity after she started teaching belly dancing for fun. Upon realizing the classes were full, Joany learned her lessons became a comforting and empowering hobby for women in the North Bay area, so she decided to make it a full-time business. Not only did belly dance energize her and her students, but Joany also lost 70 lbs just from belly dancing alone — which of course, inspired many.
Joany is continuously learning the art of dance, and bettering her teaching skills any way she can. She has learned from world-renowned dance teachers and masters. Moreover, Joany travelled to Egypt to dive deeper into the art and history of belly dance.
Today, Feminicity offers dance classes including belly and ballroom dancing and burlesque. Workshops, performances, bachelorette and other party services are also available.
