Become a Musical Dancer!

The difference between a good dancer and a great dancer can be as simple as your connection to the music.

Learn to zone in and interpret the music through your body for improvisation, and choreography at ANY level. Every instrument and player has their own personality, and if you listen you can create an unforgettable visual masterpiece on the spot. Let your own particular soul shine through by connecting to the invisible.

I will give you some basic movements to Middle Eastern music sections and then you will improvise to the changes. We will also do a short section on the main rhythms of a basic drum solo.

Workshop Cost:

$30.00 Prepay

$40.00 at the door

Adding the beautiful 9/8 rhythm to your dance repertoire


The 9/8 rhythm is an important rhythm in Turkish Romani dance.

We will explore Turkish Romani dance style and movements with the music. The tempo can be slow, medium or fast, with many variations of the rhythm. We will put the moves together to get a feel for the Romani style and then we will look at ways of incorporating the movements and rhythm into our differing styles of dance while honoring and respecting the Romani culture.
