Saucy Nancy

soloist and Co-founder
of Cairo Sound Clash and Utopia Studios
of St. Louis, MO

Saucy Nancy not only loves Middle Eastern dance, but all forms of ethnic dance. Her approach is Egyptian bellydance that is highly influenced by modern dance and Gothic performance art; a combination that is at times primal, evocative and avant-garde.

In 1996 Saucy Nancy began learning belly dance under the direction of Jacqueline Chapman of London.  Between 1998 to 2003, Saucy Nancy performed as a member of Aalim Dance Company of St. Louis. From 2000 to 2001, she was the "house dancer" every weekend at Club Euro and Hollywood Restaurant in St. Louis. Now, performing for more than a decade, she is also one of the longest running members of Belly Dance United where she has performed in over eight original theatrical shows.

Saucy Nancy is involved in many artistic projects such as:

Cairo Sound Clash, a music and dance ensemble made of original bellydance music composed by husband Spence Harrison using predominately Arabic rhythms and instruments. Saucy Nancy is lead dancer and publicist.  

Co-owner of Utopia Studios, a rehearsal hall and private venue which provides creative space for hundreds of musicians, dancers, photographers and theater groups.

Her prior entertainment experience includes stage and band management from 1993 to 2003 as theatrical manager for the London (UK) and St. Louis-based band Son of William.

As a dancer, Saucy Nancy continues to learn new techniques and to be amazed at the beauty and dedication involved in the art of belly dance. She enjoys practicing yoga, zumba and taking workshops to further her dance education.  Ultimately, Saucy Nancy's main goal in dancing is to channel ancient patterns of movement that connect us with our shared ancestry.
