June 18th: Dance Performers

June 18th’s performances will feature one of the most beautiful and elegant belly dancers coming out of the SF Bay Area, Masha. To mix it up, we will also have a Flamenco performance by a very talented dancer, Kristelle. Coming out of Jill Parker’s core student base, Stephanie Fields will bring a very awesome flavor of belly dance. In addition, belly dancer Jen Faust will also be bringing her talents to the evening.  Together these dancers will give us wonderful performances and night to remember.
