Joyce Barnes

Tahlequah, OK

Hiking, camping, climbing and fishing the Rockies, Cascades, and Olympic Mountain ranges were life for me. Born in Colorado and raised in Seattle the outdoors and travel were some of my most memorable experiences.

Then sever asthma and weak immune system hit me at a young age. Already allergic to dairy and ill most of the time my family decided to move to Washington state for an environmental change. In elementary school, I took up the clarinet to strengthen my lungs and within a year I was playing the alto saxophone then soon baritone. In junior high & high school, I was on the gymnastics and dance teams and loved it. But due to my physical health, I was unable to pursue it competitively.

After 25+ years my lungs grew stronger as I trained in classical, jazz, and world music. I received my Bachelor's degree in 1998 from Eastern Washington University and Master's in Music Composition in 2003 from Central Washington University. I also studied film and computer technology in Seattle. I have performed and written works for voice and instrumental and I participated in the first-ever use of a Palm Pilot (old school tech) as a musical instrument in 2002.

After graduation, I moved to Washington D.C. (Aka, husband got a new job, LOL) where I studied the Native American Flute collection at Smithsonian's Natural History Museum. After attending many NA Flute related events, my new adventure brought me to Oklahoma in 2004. Here I helped to create and promote some of the first Native American Flute Circles and festivals in the area, as well as creating 500+ wood and river cane flutes myself. The dust from working with these materials, along with newly discovered allergies/ sensitivities to wheat, corn, and processed foods prompted me to look for avenues to improving my declining health once again.

In college, I took a class on the music of India and fell in love with it and recently discovered Bollywood films leading to a new passion. With the enthusiasm of a fellow instructor, I become a certified BollyX® Instructor in 2015. My husband was also certified in 2016 and we teach together in Tahlequah and Cookson, OK as well as volunteer at many charitable events around the state. Bringing that inner rockstar feeling to our classes and seeing how it lights up our students is amazing. I love the choreo, makes you feel like your in a Bollywood film.

Every day is a new adventure and a new learning opportunity on the road to a healthy well being.

BollyX member since October 2015
