As many of us, Mat Jacob first fell in love with Tribal Fusion Belly Dance when she first saw Rachel Brice move. A whole new universe opened up for her then.
Since that very moment, Mat has with much passion and dedication followed Miss Brice along with other muses she discovered on the way. She had the privilege to study with some of the most influential artists, in her opinion, of the tribal fusion belly dance world: Mira Betz, Zoe Jakes, Mardi Love, Amy Sigil, Illan Riviere, Ariellah, Kami Liddle, Heather Stants and last but not least, her recent important discovery, Piny and Orchidaceae Tribal. All of them make her heart beat with inspiration.
Mat is honored to have been a part of Rachel Brice’s project Datura and is a guest dancer of Kami Liddle’s dance company Goldstar.
Mat was the first level 3 certified from Rachel Brice’s 8 Elements program in the world and is certified to teach level 3 Unmata style ITS.
She thinks Djeynee and Yuko should be in this bio cause she certainly wouldn’t be the same without them.
She thinks her students should also all be in this bio because they are just as important as her teachers.
