Pre-Hallowe’en Adornments!

Hey Ladies,

So one of the things I don’t practice enough is the whole adornment side of tribal fusion.  We have some KILLER costuming (take a look at Mardi Love’s stuff!) and we should play with it more.

For our next class, on October 30th,  let’s adorn ourselves!  Feel free to bring belts, coins, tassels, scarves, jewellery, and whatever else makes you happy.  Skirts, harem pants, leggings… whatever!  I’ll bring some things to help deck everyone out (do try practicing beforehand to be sure you can dance safely) and otherwise remember to have fun- this is the adult dress up night. 

Don’t stress- just enjoy!

See you on Sunday!

Quick and quicker– the music!

Happy first class, everyone!

As requested, here is the music we were dancing to tonight– for both classes!

Spring!

Hello ladies!

So it’s finally Spring this weekend — officially turns just a couple hours before class, in fact.  How’s that for promising?

We’re moving to a new framework– schedule is the same, but the early class (6:30-7:30) is now available to drop-in, 5-class passes, and 10-class passes.  Check out the Classes and Prices pages for the new information!

The later class (7:30-8:30) is available to anyone who’s danced at least one session with me, and it’s a lot of fun!  This Spring we’re doing combos, choreography, and talking costumes and staging.  Cool stuff!  It’s by registration only, so let me know by March 31st if you plan on attending.

Can’t wait to get going!

Two more ‘trial friendly’ weeks!

Hey Ladies,

Classes are absolutely fabulous!  

Thanks everyone for coming out in all this cold.  I’m super excited to dance with all of you this session!

New dancers trying out the Multi-Level Drills class are welcome this weekend (Jan 24th) and next (Jan 31st),  but after that we’re going to be really getting into it, so please come out this weekend or next week if you want to try and haven’t quite made up your mind yet!

Feel free to send me an email, or leave a note on the blog with any questions!

See you all this weekend!

Blog Updates

Hey Ladies,

As requested, I’ve finally added a couple pretty important things to the blog!

1) The FAQ has a few of those “ball of foot shoes” we’ve been talking about in classes.  The links are to a couple different well-known dance companies as well as amazon.com and amazon.ca listings, but feel free to dig around online and find some of your own if you like.  Remember, they are not required!  

2) There’s a new page, called “Drills“, available in the top menu!  It will be expanded as we go, but for now has a few of the layering drill pieces I use to keep us sweating every week.  Check it out!

Feel free to send me an email, or leave a note on the blog with any questions!

See you all this weekend!
