Belly Dance at Studio Z

Hello Dancers,


We had some fun with a drum solo routine and veil last Sat., and since there was some date confusion, I’m thinking of a repeat for the 1st Sat. in March.  So bring your veils and some good wiggle in your hips on Sat. March 5th 10:15am to Noon at Studio Z (55 School St. Colfax)!!  Workshop cost is $10.


Don’t forget that the biggest Belly Dance Festival of the West is coming to Richmond; Rakkasah is March 11-13, 2011.   for more festival and dancer links, check my blog site below.
