Confidence Boosting Choreography

Ashtalea of Las Vegas developed this workshop to help dancers strengthen technique, make the most out of dancing in a small space, and present themselves with confidence (not arrogance).  Ashtalea will teach a brand new, fun and upbeat choreography that participants will have the opportunity to perform with her in our upcoming Community Hafla (Sunday, March 25th @ 6:30p).   She will also lecture on "DANSE DU VENTRE", or as Ashtalea calls it, "the old-school belly dancer's map."  The lecture will include a discussion of changes in the dance form in the last 5 decades.  

*SPACE IS LIMITED TO 10 PARTICIPANTS, SO SIGN UP TODAY*

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