Belly Dance Trailblazers

Belly Dance Trailblazers: Mish Mish

We all know belly dance trailblazers...dancers who created their own belly dance path and had many adventures along the way. So many wonderful dancers have graced theater stages, restaurants, clubs, and cabarets over the years and we want to share their stories with you!

In sharing their history and stories we hope you will feel a connection to the dancers who came before us, be inspired to continue on your amazing dance journey, and have many exciting adventures!

Our first spotlight dancer is the beautiful Mish Mish.

I already had the perfect dress (15 yds of Burgundy velvet skirt with under hoops, neck and waist edged in baby pearls and a 6 ft pink chiffon train at the neck) which I originally wore when portraying a Romeo & Juliet skit at our friends Raggedy Ann & Raggedy Robbins Circus Wedding at Glide Memorial Church. This was all back in the days when I was doing some performances at the Palace Theater/Midnight Movies and Cockette shows in North Beach.

New Workshop: 8/30/17

Changes: An Original Choreography with Rachel Brice

Who. Is. Ready. for a new choreography from Rachel Brice?!

 Changes: An Original Choreography with Rachel BriceChanges: An Original Choreography

This advanced choreography from Rachel has everything: Gooey slow, unbelievably fast, syncopation, triplets, and tons of variation, all to the amazing song "Changes" by SENOJNYAR. This workshop is part technique drill and part dance and includes Rib cage locks, side to side undulations, a lot of shoulder work, big juicy hip drops, and lots of back to back contrast. This workshop begins at the end, adding some structured improv and compositional principles along the way, and works backward to a gooey start so you can know you'll end strong! Be sure you are warmed up before starting this workshop and cool down afterwards..
