About Chudney:
Chudney was born in Puerto Rico, and grew up between opposite worlds of Panama and Hampton Roads, Virginia. She began belly dancing as a way to relieve stress, and has never looked back.
Her odyssey commenced at Body Works by Chandani in Virginia Beach. The womanly and fluid hips of Amina Shadeed mesmerized Chudney so much that she continued her studies with the talented and missed Chandani.
Eventually Chudney became a valued beginner level instructor at Body Works by Chandani, until they closed their doors in 2011.
Chudney was asked to join the multi-award-winning Hippy Chicks Raks belly dance troupe in 2007. Hippy Chicks Raks had the honor of sharing the stage with master percussionist Issam Houshan in January 2008.
That same year, Chudney and Hippy Chicks Raks won the Jewel of the Nile competition, and placed 3rd at the East Coast Classic belly dance competitions in the Troupe category.
In 2010, they went on to win the Troupe category at the Viva la Diva Competition in Boston. Chudney also placed 2nd in the Diva Rising category.
Her most recent achievements include placing 1st runner up at Jewels of the Orient Festival in the Professional Oriental category and placing 1st runner up and People’s Choice in the Junior Professional Starlette category at Rakstar in Miami.
Chudney also is the 2015 East Coast Classic Professional Cabaret and People’s Choice winner.
She currently receives mentorship with the inspirational Kalaa in Virginia Beach, and is a member of her dance troupe, Saleema Habiba.
Chudney has taken workshops with several instructors worldwide, including in Turkey and Egypt. She is a lifetime student and continues to travel internationally to further her Oriental dance studies.
