All bellydance styles and levels welcome. Not recommended for absolute beginners to bellydance.

Silky Sharp (2 to 4pm)

Take some of your newly polished technique and apply it to sections of a new choreography created by Angela. This piece is smooth as butter with oodles of sharp accents and is infused with lots of Angela’s signature style. Expand on the technique and explore the expressiveness of these modern fusion combos.
