We are excited to introduce our newest resident, Pixie Fordtears, who has recently moved up from LA, and will be in monthly rotation at Underground Nomads. Welcome to SF, Pixie! Pixie Fordtears started her love for Bellydance at the renaissance pleasure Faire in Southern California. Quickly realizing this was her passion in life she dedicated her life to her craft! She performed regularly at restaurants with The Jewels That RAQ, Ren Fair with Seraphim, and had a show at an amusement park with Red Moon Dance co.! Now she decided to take her training to the next level by relocating to the Bay Area! Being a proud member of Zoe Jakes’ House of Tarot and Jill Parker’s Little Egypt, pixie is very grateful for the opportunities that have come into her life, and can’t wait to see what’s next! Karolina Lux will be joining us for her first-ever appearrance at Underground Nomads … What? Yay! Karolina and Amar have been working together on stage and in the music studio for awhile now. While she has been touring with March Fourth Marching Band, Vagabond Opera, Sepiatonic and dropping in on Beats Antique shows with The Bhoomi Project – among other things like making music – it’s been hard to catch her in town. We are excited to have her here for a solo performance as part of the House of Tarot crew, and possibly a lil bit O’ Improv with DJ Amar. We are also very happy to feature Special Guest Alexis Southall from the UK. Alexis Southall is a Tribal Fusion teacher and performer from Wolverhampton, UK. She travels internationally to share her love for Tribal Fusion and is known for her seamless flow and elegant lines. UNDERGROUND NOMADS – CELEBRATING OUR 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY AT F8!
