Fusion Forwards

Sitting here at 1:30 AM putting together the finishing touches for the show tomorrow, I anticipate an amazing evening.  Fusion Forwards is a show featuring Tribal Fusion Belly Dance – a genre of belly dance bringing together ooey gooey snake like moves and step from American Tribal Style Belly Dance and fuses them with other dance forms, including other styles of belly dance.Image

It is an evolving form continuing to reach higher levels.  The event starts tomorrow evening, April 19th, 8:00PM at Modern Formations Gallery – 4919 Penn Ave.  The show is $10 and children under 12 are free!  Refreshments are included in the cost.

Fall Belly Dance News

Fall is an exciting time for me.  The weather is near perfect for long walks and some good comfort food.  This fall is particularly exciting for me.  I’ll be going back to Portland, Oregon  to study with the amazing Rachel Brice again as part of the 8 Elements Program and plan on taking in person classes at Datura!  I will also be traveling to Toronto for workshops with Samantha Emanuel and perform for the first time in Canada!

All class and workshop information is updated in the Classes and Workshops page!  The next session at Absolute Ballroom starts on October 17th!  Looking forward to dancing with you!  Here is a recent performance of mine as part of the Ruby Beh Gala in August!
