A month from now, Amani Jabril brings us the second annual Dancer's Intensive.  This event will feature instruction in both dance and drumming, as well as a Friday night party at Steve's Live Music and a Saturday night gala show at Pera.  Amani has worked hard to pull this event together, combining live music, classic Oriental belly dance instruction, and a chance to experience several specific forms of dance.

Dance workshops will be held on Saturday, May 25 at Pera, and all will feature live music from George Sadak and Jonaton Gomez.  It's not often that we get the opportunity to dance-- let alone learn -- with live musicians!  Amani will be teaching three workshops, including a class in Iraqi Kawleeya (if you saw Amani perform in the Gems of the South show, you know how electrifying this dance style can be!).  Jaki Hawthorne of Jahara Phoenix will offer a Bollywood class.  On Sunday at Amani's home studio, George Sadak will teach a drumming class.

The Friday night party will celebrate the release of George and Jonaton's new CD, "Majaaz."  The Raqs Atlanta Awards of Dance will also be presented... and lots of other fun stuff!  Steve's Live Music is a great venue right on Roswell Road in Sandy Springs.

Super Saver rates are available through Wednesday, May 1 -- get all Saturday workshops plus a ticket to the Saturday night show for $175.  A la carte workshops are $50 each, and discounts are available for teachers, performers, and 2012 participants.  Click here to pre-register!
