Cross Fit
with Krisenna, 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.

Are you a Tribal Fusion or a Raqs Sharqi dancer who is interested in changing things up a bit? Cross training is a great way to expand your vocabulary of movement, but it can be frustrating trying to figure out how to tweak your current movement to fit a different style. Krisenna has studied with some incredible Cued Improv & Fusion instructors such as Rachel Brice, Zoe Jakes, Mira Betz & Amy Sigil. She has also traveled to Egypt twice and has had the opportunity to learn from Dina, Shahrzad Cairo, Aziza Cairo, Dariya Mitskevich Raqia Hassan, Tommy King and many other renowned instructors. Krisenna loves training in multiple styles and has put together a class based on the way she learned to adjust staple movements to be able to perform different styles. There will also be an overview of the different training focuses and key elements to help participants gain confidence and be more comfortable with exploring style variations. 

workshop is 1 hour - $15 

About the instructor:  

Krisenna is a dance instructor in Casa Grande. She is also the director of the Amethyst World  Dance Company and producer of the Amethyst Dance Festival.

Teach Yourself like You’re the Teacher”
with Samanth Karim, 2:30 - 3:30 p.m.

Do you know what is your at-home dance practice routine in order to get the belly dance results you want? 

Many belly dancers aren’t confident they are practicing the “right” way at home and in turn, just stop practicing at all, now depending only on class to get them through it.
And side note, it’s not just “do it many times and make it muscle memory”.

Through lecture and movement we will answer questions and address challenges that gets in the way of your progress. 

workshop is 1 hour - $15
