Kae Montgomery came to FatChanceBellyDance® from her homeland, Japan, in the spring of 2007. She became a regular at FatChance classes, and in less than two years she was invited to join the professional troupe. Since she began performing and teaching in 2009 she has enjoyed being part of the beautiful belly dancing community. Kae can't wait to share a fun, energetic, and enriching class for all ages and abilities!
If you want to get shakin' with some moves virtually, check out our Belly Dancing Playlist, compliments of DJ Charis.
Email Theresa at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-765-4386 to say you plan to attend. This secures your spot and helps us have enough staff & supplies.
Please arrive promptly at 1 p.m. for check-in (or 1:15 if you are not doing the health screening). Bring water, a snack if you need it, and comfortable shoes.
You have access to certified diabetes educators who will answer your questions and provide a free health screening ($100 value) including an A1C test (3 month glucose average), glucose, blood pressure, waist measurements - all tracked over time so you can see your progress. If you want to come to dance only and pass on the health screening, that's fine. Our friendly environment welcomes all.
Diabetes Distress Screening Results from 7/14/12 Dance
Part of our mission is to provide ongoing support. Katie Savin, Medical Social Worker and Dance Out Diabetes volunteer did just that by providing an opportunity for participants to Dance Out Distress!

Nearly half of the Hot Hula attendees participated in a diabetes-related distress screening. Of those, half of the people screened scored higher than average in the severity of their diabetes-related distress. All participants received a pamphlet on ways to reduce and prevent this distress. People who scored higher also received referrals to local diabetes support groups and one received a referral to individual counseling with a follow-up plan in place.
For any questions about your results, come talk to Katie this Saturday!
