Ava Fleming: Finding & Expressing Your Unique Dance Voice (10:00-11:30) 

Embrace your grace and authenticity with your unique and one of a kind dance voice.  Shimmies, combos, slow or just general fun, learn how to express your unique personality in your movement.

Ashtalea: Combos with Class & Sass (11:45-1:15pm)

In this class, Ashtalea teaches some mini-combinations that can be used in an array of Middle Eastern dance styles. She will show you that with subtle posture and mood changes how a single dance sequence can work for many different musical styles. Bring some water and a towel. You will work up a sweat!  


Shimmy Sister Kate: Drama Queen 101- Walking (1:30-3:00pm)

A performer with stage presence executes the simplest movements with complete commitment and intention. Nothing is wasted, and every moment on stage is used to the utmost to convey emotion and character. To that end, we'll spend our time together working on the basics: walking.

Not your ordinary stroll, this workshop will cover all the aspects of a character walk, from weight to pace to focus. Dancers of all levels of ability and styles of "bellydance" are welcome!
