New Class Session Begins Dec. 6!

Get ready for Dec. 6!

Get ready for Dec. 6!

Nov. 8 is the last class of Fall 2014 session so if you want to work on that choreo this is your last chance! I will also be bringing a printout of the steps so you can reference that when you are practicing at home. We’ll take a little break until after Turkey Day and start up again Dec. 6, when we will be doing something totally different, but equally, if not more fun.

Please note the change in cost for punch cards. Student punch cards are still $35.

Hope to see you there!

Yes We Will Have Class On Sept. 13

As many of you know, ESPN Gameday will be broadcasting live from one block down the street. They did it last year too. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be then so I’m hoping this year will be the same (although I was just downtown for dinner tonight and that was a bit of a green and gold parking nightmare). We WILL have class as usual. I recommend coming a little early and parking to the south of the Spirit Room. You probably don’t want to park on Broadway since it will be partially blocked. Good luck to us all!

New Class Session Starts Sept. 6!

Are you ready?

Are you ready?

Fall session is upon us in ONE MONTH! Are you ready to shimmy? I think we will be doing some veil work this time around so bring ’em if you got ’em! I will have spares for students who do not have veils.

Remember: Saturday, Sept. 6, 10am-11am; The Spirit Room, 111 Broadway, Fargo, ND.

If you miss the first class you can easily catch up in week 2 or 3. Contact me if you have any questions at all. Hope to see you all soon!

The Latest Bellydance News!

Greetings everyone! We’ve got lots of stuff coming up:

Winter session is almost over but summer is so far away! I’m going to have four single-subject classes in April to round out the season:

  • April 5: Intro to veil work – I will show some basic moves and we’ll learn a short drill/choreography. Veils will be provided if you do not have your own, but there will be a limited number.
  • April 12: Shimmy intensive – We will learn different types of shimmies.
  • April 19: Music and Rhythm – basic overview of common Middle Eastern rhythms as well as popular dance music. Bring your zills if you have some. (Yes, I am aware this is Easter weekend).
  • April 26: Regional Dance Styles and Costuming – brief overview of the differences in styles of bellydance and the costuming that is commonly worn with it. I will bring samples from my own collection.

Shimmy Mob registration closes for adults in the USA on April 4. Better hurry up and register! More info here. Please consider donating to our chosen charity, CVIC Inc through our GoFundMe link.

Bad Weather Burlesque will be holding a “Burlesque 101” workshop at the Red Raven at 7pm April 7 and also April 28. We will be covering such crossover topics as posture, stage presence, makeup and glitter. This is free and open to the public, although if you want to donate a couple of bucks we wouldn’t turn you down. 😉

Hope to see you soon!
