15 February 2014- Tribal Fusion Beginnings, Discover your Basics workshop by Jasmin Victoria of Junonia Dance Company

Wow, what a busy last two weeks it has been! It was filled not only with plenty of work assignments but also with a plethora of organisational dance duties. I was organising and co-hosting a dance event called Celebrating the Body in Dance (Part II) on 21 February and preparing my material for my folkloric fusion introductory workshop at Temple Lane Rehearsal Studios. The workshop took place yesterday and was an introductory session in a series of folkloric fusion workshops inspired by my study of the Jamila Salimpour format.

I was also gearing up to teaching a Tribal Fusion Beginnings workshop under the title "Discover your Basics" on 15 February 2014.  The workshop was specifically created as part of Yelp's Festival of Firsts and took place in the gorgeous Studio 2 of the Dublin Holistic Centre where I normally teach my regular classes.

I thought it was such a great initiative to introduce modern style and Tribal Fusion belly dance to anyone that may be interested in finding out what it's all about. The offer was valid for any Yelp members that signed up for it in advance and the Yelp members that did attend the class were great sports, really inquisitive, eager to learn new concepts and up for the challenge. I love teaching such a pro-active, curious and eager crowd and it was amazing to see all of the baby belly dancers work their isolations. It was lovely to answer your questions, and participants approached me after class with enquiries and input.

Thanks so much for showing up and making the workshop so memorable. If you are interested in finding out about the experience and impressions of some of the Yelper bellies you can read their reviews on the yelp page. It means the world to me to receive such wonderful, constructive and positive feedback, and I am thrilled to hear that the workshop was as enjoyable to them as it was to me! Thanks to Yelp, the yelp members, and the Dublin Holistic Centre for making this event happen, what an amazing initiative! Definitely cannot wait for more events of this kind.
