Dear Dance and Music friends!

January was an exciting month for me and the upcoming months are filled with many opportunities to dance and learn with me! 

Due to many requests and the rise of COVID cases I have moved my Maghreb Dance Intensive online.  

Content: 25 hours of online instruction on North African Maghreb dance.  The focus will be on dance movement, drumming, singing, costuming, history, and the spirituality of the dances of 5 North African countries: Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Mauritania, and Libya.

Cost is $500. The fee should be paid no later than February 15th, 2021. Day-attendees are welcome! 

This intensive is given once a year. Dancers come to study from all over the USA as well as overseas.

Please remember that space is limited so register early and reserve your spot by sending a $150 non-refundable deposit.
