2012 Workshop Preview

There will be some really exciting workshops in metro Atlanta next year!  Some very popular teachers will be returning, and we'll also have the chance to study with a few dancers who rarely make it to this area.  Mark your calendars and start saving your pennies!

January 14-15
Workshops with Alicia of BellyCraft

Brought to you by World Belly Dance Alliance.  Alicia was a huge hit here in 2009, and she's back with all-new material.  Alicia will be teaching three groups sessions and a special semi-private session called "Eye of the Storm."  There will also be a big show at Pera Saturday night!

February 23-26
TribalCon VIII:  "Foundations"

Zoe Jakes & Al Cofrin
Produced by Ziah and the Awalim Dance Company, the Southeast's premiere dance and music convention is back for its eighth year.  Dance teachers include Tamalyn Dallal, Zoe Jakes, Ariellah, Megha, and Ziah herself; music instructors will include Al Cofrin, August Hoerr, Dave Machek, Dennis Proteau, and Faisal Zedan.  In addition to the classes and lectures, there will be two shows (including a Friday night show with all live music) delicious dinner buffets, an amazing live music hafla, and fabulous shopping!


May 25-28
"The Dancer's Intensive" with Yasmine, Kitiera, and Amani
Our own Amani Jabril will be bringing two amazing performers and instructors for a weekend focused on the connections that allow us to create a performance.  Kitiera's sessions will be all about connecting with the body; Yasmine will focus on connecting with the rhythm, and Amani -- a master of stage presence -- will offer a session on connecting with the people.

June 22-25
ATS General Skills Certification & Teacher Training with Carolena Nericcio and Megha Gavin

Lacy Perry and Beledi Boutique are bringing the one and only Carolena all the way across the country for a series of master classes in American Tribal Style!  The General Skills and Teacher Training sessions are already sold out, but you can ask to be put on a waiting list in case anyone cancels.  If you are already a Teacher Training graduate, a Teacher Training 2 session is still available.  I am hoping for an awesome show to accompany these workshops!

Donna Mejia
