Posted:Thanks to the wonderful Bluecat hug, I will be all over Europe for several weeks, and I would love to do as many workshops as possible while I am there. If anyone is interested please let me know a.s.a.p. so I can arrange a schedule and try to find out how to get to them. If I can get enough people interested I can get a eurail pass or something so I could get anywhere for not very much money. IOW private lessons could even be feasible. This is more about meeting people and teaching for me, so I would make the trip to your town if it could at least cover traveling expenses. I suppose the going rate would be 15 each for a 3-4 hour class, but I do sliding scale.



Well I know none of you has seen me spin. So I realise this is a bit outlandish. But I suppose I could list my credentials... I have been spinning chains (poi) avidly for about 9 years, and playing with whips for about 10. I've also been into performance art since I was a wee lad, studying mostly physical movement, mask dancing, and puppetry. I have been dancing for fun (a style some could call liquid, very close to belly dance) for about 12 years, and have been avidly studying tribal belly dance for several years. I have also been through a lot of physical therapy and studied yoga due to some spinal injuries, and I bring that knowledge to the table with my instruction. I am a career perfomer and have been flown all over the country to do shows for several years. I am in a belly dance troupe from Texas which I am honored to be involved in.



As a teacher i would say my emphasis is on technical refinement, dance and artistic integrity. Anyone interested in a professional career as a fire dancer or even taking their hobby to greater depth would be guaranteed to learn a lot. In fact if I can't leave you with several years of work then I guarantee your money back and reccomend that you should be working for cirque du soleil... or at least let me fly you to the U.S. for performances biggrin

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?
