The first time I saw Zoe Jakes some seven years ago, I was beyond captivated. The first time I saw her dance live six years ago, I went straight out and signed up for a Tribal Fusion class the VERY next day. Then I got a chance to interview her for the cover of fuse: a tribal and tribal fusion belly dance magazine in 2011.
Now, in 2014, Zoe continues to be one of the most talented, creative and innovative artists out there, not just as a dancer, but as an artistic director, producer and member of the band Beats Antique, storyteller and sorceress. She weaves a spell over everyone in her path, drawing from the past and weaving it into the present and future. Zoe, you amaze me!
