We are so excited to bring to you some of the brightest stars in the Canadian bellydance scene. Taking workshops with other instructors is a great way to expand your dance vocabulary, come at your practice from a new angle, learn new ways of creating & being creative as well as meeting other dancers.
Part of our mission at Mahasti is also to support those within our community.
Melissa Gamal is an award-winning dance artist based out of Toronto as well as 1/3 of the renowned dance company Ya Amar. She’ll be bringing us her signature flawless Egyptian Bellydance on Sat 3/11 and then staying in town to dance at Harem that night in The Casbah.
Sun 3/26 we are having a Fusion Intensive. Fusion as the name implies is dance mixology, infusing bellydance with other movement practices. Jackie Pullar from Wild Orchid Bellydance in Hamilton, Zahira from Dragonfly Bellydance in Toronto & Ishra of Invoketress in Guelph will be joining forces to bring you 3 different, playful offerings.
Sat 4/8 will have Audra of The Dark Side Studio & Lavish in Toronto visiting us. She is a bellydance pioneer. After her workshops she’ll be dancing that night at Harem in The Casbah.
More details coming soon.
