Feb 24th: Dulce Vita | Tessera, Amberetta, Ayre Briar, Angela, Laura Elisabeth

So all you Opulent Temple lovers know Dulce Vita. If you are not familiar with Opulent Temple….OR Dulce, you’re in for a treat. Dulce will be back this week to drop some awesome beats to make you MOVE!

On SECOND Tuesdays, we usually have FCBD (FatChanceBellyDance)- the originators of what most of San Francisco considers “Tribal Belly Dance”. But did you know there are several OTHER  A.T.S.(American Tribal Style) troupes out there? Yes, their emphasis is the same as FCBD- but each group has their own FLAVOR! SO! This week, we have TESSERA Tribal in our line up- these gals bring the traditional ATS feeling with a wacky flavor all their own!

Amberetta will astound and stupefy you. We’re not joking. This girl means business with her moves, and will tell you as much with just a simple look.

Ayre Briar is a wild card in all the best ways- I am constantly on the edge of my seat, just WAITING to see what she brings to the table. For Halloween, she got super witchy. For Christmas? Sexy Xmas Elf.
WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN THIS TIME?! Come and find out.

Angela will glide through her performance, laying a kind of spell on you. You will wake from your stupor wondering how it happened, and how you can get it back………

Laura Elisabeth will be performing…..for the THIRD TIME THIS MONTH. Why? Why THREE TIMES?! Well- it’s because she has skills to dance THREE separate styles. I.T.S., Choreography by Calamity Sam, and her own SOLO. This girl……

We are so excited to celebrate Belly Dance in all of it’s fusion and forms. Come out and cheer on all these performers do.

Feb. 17th: Feb. 17 Santero | Isabel Perdomo, Millie Maddox, Yvonne Michelle, Sadira, Calamity Sam’s Calamitous Choreography Class

Are you ready to dance? Because WE are. Santero is back to bring the beats that move you! He’ll have the dancefloor jumping before AND after our dance performances this week!

We have so many amazing resident dancers, and we are thankful for every one of them. This week, we have Isabel Perdomo, Millie Maddox, Yvonne Michelle, and Sadira bringing solos to excite you!

In addition, Calamity Sam is proud to have her choreography class debuting her newest Calamitous Choreography! These ladies have had 6 weeks (plus one extra rehearsal) to learn and polish this dance. It’s a huge effort to not only learn movement, but also figure out how to navigate that movement within a group of 9 people. Come and cheer them on as they dance!

All of these dancers work incredibly hard to provide an entertaining show for you every week- come and see the awesome!
