SATURDAY, JANUARY 10, 2-4PM
Sassy & Sultry Belly-esque Workshop with Karolina Lux!
WHERE: I-STUDIO, 569 W 600 SOUTH SLC
$30
Hello dancers! I am coming to train and rehearse in Salt Lake City next week, and got a somewhat-last-minute opportunity to offer a workshop, and so... I am excited to bring this one to Salt Lake City for the first time! We will cover some ideas of theatrical presentation and expression on stage, and learn an upbeat choreography with lots of spunk, and jazzy combos you can extract for your own use:) It's coming up soon, so if your weekend still needs some sweat and an extra blast of training and fun, please come and rock out with me! NOTE: This will not be a large class, so sign up now, and bring any questions you have since it will be easy to give some one-on-one attention, where you want it.

Halima
Halima has been dancing for about 27 years. Its been great fun! She was inspired by the artistry of Sulisha, Jason, Yasimina, Azziz and Zahira back in the day when they danced at Liberty Park and Grecian Gardens. We have such a rich belly dance heritage in Utah. She has had so many great teachers along the way from Layla to Cassandra Shore and many in-between. She loves this beautiful art form and the way it allows woman the creative expression of their bodies. Halima is the creator and Director of Desert Gypsy Dance Company- a American style troupe that has been delighting audiences for 10 years. With the help of DGDC codirectors, Kalista, Odessa, and Araylia and all of Halima's dancers the Desert Gypsy ladies have been able to create three unique troupes that compliment each other, Desert Gypsy, Gypsy Rhythm, and Gypsy Melody. Often all three troupes are featured on stage at the same time, and Halima has become known for creating beautiful, clean, and exciting staging for large groups. Halima, the co directors, and other Desert Gypsy members now offer classes in various locations in Utah County. Halima looks forward to many more years of dance and sisterhood!
