Veronica Lynn is an American dance artist and costume designer in Los Angeles, California. She approaches dance with the goal of stirring the imagination and guiding her audience through her rhinestone-bedazzled fantasy world. Dance is an art that disappears as it is being created: Veronica balances this evanescence with dazzling costumes that aid in expressing the story and theme of the performance.
Veronica has received diverse dance training, with her primary focus being the style of transnational fusion belly dance, formerly known as “tribal fusion”. (For information on this genre, please refer to this brief writing by Jasmin Victoria*, followed by this letter by Donna Mejia discussing the change in name). Her studies also include jazz and cabaret, which are key influences in her style. Veronica does not identify her present mode of dance as a form of belly dance but instead refers to it as nouveau cabaret—a style deeply inspired by modern dance

*Please note that while this writing is a comprehensive outline of the origin of transnational fusion, it contains the problematic term “gypsy”, a pejorative term for people of Roma descent. It also cites the names of certain dance moves such as “Basic Egyptian,” “Turkish Drop”, and “Arabic” that have come to be known by different names not associated with the nations referred to, being that these dance moves are of American origin.
