MManxGothlaUK

We will also be showcasing our wonderful resident dancers Dalila Jasmin, Lindsay Kendall and Paige Lawrence.

Michelle’s love for dance started at the age of six when she began participation in ballet and tap classes. She became interested in bellydance when her mother enrolled in a bellydance class in the 70’s and with her background in anthropology, the study of ethnic dance was a natural progression.

Michelle has studied the art of bellydance since early 2002, including Suhaila Salimpour technique (currently working towards her Level 2 Certification), Jamila Salimpour Format (Level 2 certified), various forms of Tribal Bellydance, and Raqs Sharqi. She has also supplemented her knowledge of dance and movement by taking Bharata Natyam, classic burlesque, and yoga classes.

She also enjoys performing at tattoo conventions, where she developed her signature style of incorporating the poses and facial expressions of the pin-up girls of the 40’s and 50’s into her dancing. In 2008, Michelle’s life was changed when she had the honor of debuting her ’Pin-up Bellydance’ workshop at Tribal Fest 8. Since then, she has traveled to teach her unique stylization of bellydance at festivals and seminars associated with Tribal and alternative bellydance. In addition, she accepted the position of the producer of Tribal Dance Camp in Texas in association with Bahaia and HOT Seminars.

Whenever Michelle’s not bellydancing or producing bellydance events, she enjoys participating in pin-up photography photo shoots. She has modeled for some of her favorite designers, such as Poison Candy Fashion and Geisha Moth. In 2010, one of her photos was included in Gayla Partridge’s photography book: “666 Photography: Of Virgin Queens and High Camp Divas.

Hello friends! Summer solstice approacheth! That’s right – the longest day of the year’s coming fast and what better way to praise that delicious extra daylight than hanging with your Underground Nomads family? Join us, this coming Tuesday, June 20th, at our home in SOMA – F8!

Lady Ra will be our musical guide this week. She’ll be sure to give you the right soundtrack to put you in the mood for your Solstice celebrations!

LadyRa

Lady Ra emerged in 1996 via CFRU 93.3 fm in Guelph, Ontario, Canada . Freshly trained on antiquated community radio equipment and given free reign of the extensive music library, each show she was able to program was a revelation. Ethnic flavours quickly emerged as her primary passion. Her flair for selecting wicked tracks and mixing them with ambient global sounds brought her many requests for djing local parties.

After a year in Asia absorbing the local flavours, from Indonesian Dangdut, Sri Lankan Baila, Punjabi Bhangra, and everything in between, she relocated to Vancouver on Canada’s West Coast. She is inspired to continue her travels both overland and underground, seeking out and weaving old and new world sounds into rich musical tapestries hailing from the Four Corners of Earth.

And we’ve got a fantastic line-up of dancers who will be sharing their own inner sunshine with us! On the bill, we’re excited to have Lindsay Kendall, Salimpour School, Amy Szu, and a special treat – Rose Harden’s Performance Workshop Showcase!

So come on out to 1192 Folsom and party with us! We’ll keep the light on for ya (courtesy of Mother Nature, of course! heh heh).
