One Hell of a Fun Blonde with Personality to Spare!


Born in Bogota, Colombia Darling arrived to the United States at an early age of three where she was raised and educated entirely in South Florida.

Beginning her belly dance journey at 15 years old, her interest in the art was sparked out of a fascination and exposure to Middle Eastern culture. This captivation has been the driving force behind her pursuance of belly dance and the Arabic language.

 Darling has risen to the top and has become one of Florida's most popular belly dancers and has gained a variety of fans as a result. Since Darling has studied under some of the most famous instructers in Belly Dance, it has resulted in her Unique Diverse style~a Modern, Egyptian Fusion with a Classical foundation and Contemporary Lebanese influnces.

Florida Burlesque Festival is Extremely Happy to have Darling Grace our stage!
