A NEW CONCEPT in festival learning created just for BEAT THE HEAT, this fast paced fun sharing session will feature 6 mini vignettes. Picture this… one teacher/troupe takes the stage and teaches you their new favorite combo. Then the next teacher/troupe steps up to bat, and so on and so on (times six). Finally, we mix up our new ingredients to make a big yummy pot of combo dance soup at the end. Walk away with a group of short accents from your dance sisters that will expand all of our repertoires.
The amazing Hilary Giovale. Our Northern-most teacher, she will bring some high altitude attitude to BellyShare for sure!
Hilary Giovale has been learning, performing, and teaching Tribal Style Bellydance for 14 years. She is a certified Gypsy Caravan Style instructor and serves as the Creative Director for Maeve Rising Dance Collective in Flagstaff. Her path with bellydance has evolved to include body image empowerment, relationship with the natural world, and cross-pollination with movements for social change.
Meena Gorgese, director of Phoenician Fire Dance Company. Meena is an International Dance Teacher and Costume Designer who lives in Phoenix, AZ and is thrilled to be invited to this amazing event!
(We are thrilled to have Meena at Beat the Heat! Her shimmies have been known to make babies cry, men swoon….. and belly sisters say DAMNNNNNNNNN!)
Ustadza Azra, Director of New Moon Tribal School of Bellydance, teaches Vintage and Tribal Bellydance in Prescott, AZ and is a certified American Tribal Style ® teacher. She released her first DVD “Dynamic Zilling for Tribal and Cabaret Bellydance” in 2016 and loves spreading the zill love.
She’s a little bit Tribal. She’s a little bit Cabaret. Anyanka is the Director of Dancers and Jewels of DeNile, an eclectic bellydance troupe from Phoenix, who likes to shake things up in a creative way. Which style of combo do YOU think she will teach at Beat the Heat?
Why Not? Bellydance
Vending, workshops, and the evening show will be held at the Holiday Courtyard. Please note the surface is pavers and cement, so please bring dance shoes for the workshops. Also there is a sunshade over the instruction area but rays will still get through, so Beat the Heat by wearing sunscreen.
In case of rain, classes will be held indoors at the Boys & Girls Club at the corner of Aubrey St and Alarcon St.
