[Comments] A native of San Francisco, Colleen's dance background is in Ballet, Jazz, Modern, and Hip-hop. She studied dance performance and dance medicine at San Francisco State University. Her credits include numerous commercials, music videos, and bellydance instructionals. Colleen joined the Bellydance Superstars and the Desert Roses troupe in early 2003 as the first official Desert Rose. Being one of the first selected, she is also the only one remaining from the original cast. She was one of eight dancers in the first Bellydance Superstars performance - the World Peace Music Awards held in Bali , Indonesia June 2003. She also performed in the summer 2003 tour incorporating 64 Lollapalooza performances. Since then, Colleen has danced in over 18 countries with the Bellydance Superstars and to date, has never missed a tour performance.

Due to her unparalleled versatility, Colleen has been featured in all the group choreography and has consistently played the role of the company's chameleon. You can see her gracing the stage as a colorful cabaret dancer and in the same show, slip seamlessly into the ty-rads of tribal . She appears in the feature length documentaries "American Bellydancer", "Behind the Shimmy", "30 days to Vegas", and the performance DVDs "Live in Paris", "Babelesque: Live from Tokyo","Tribal Fusions Volume 2", "Tribal LA", "The Art of Bellydance: Live from Shanghai", and the upcoming "Bombay Bellywood: Live from Los Angeles".
