Upcoming Events in Feb & March!

While it's been quiet on the surface the last month and a half, been very busy moving into a new place, getting situated and putting things into motion.  In the next few weeks, online lessons will be up and running - recorded as well as skype!  In addition to that, there's a lot of great things kicking off:

1) I will be teaching a 6 week session of classes here in Seattle at Tin Can Studio starting on Thursday evenings - 7pm is Bellydance Foundation and 8pm is Fusion/Performance Fundamentals - only a few spots are left, and I will only be teaching classes when I can put 4-6 weeks together consecutively, so take advantage of when I can offer them! Complete info at

2) Nathaniel Johnstone and I will be presenting/performing/teaching at FaerieCon West in Seattle this Saturday, February 23rd: 

1:00-1:45pm: Dreaming the Raven: A Morrigan Dance Ritual
Experience a performance ritual dance presentation inspired by the mythical aspects of the Raven and the Morrigan, featuring the dancing of world-renown fusion performer Tempest and live music by multi-instrumentalist Nathaniel Johnstone. The performance will be followed up with discussion about the ritual presentation, including the myths that inspired it, the incorporation of dance and ritual, improvisation, and the creation of the music.
Market Stage - Ballroom Foyer – Level 3 (free with FaerieCon admission)

3:00-4:30pm Sigils in Motion: Merging Movement With Ritual
Ritual is a dynamic union of self and spirit, above and below—so why should it be static? Learn to incorporate movement into your ritual with focused intention and discover a much more powerful experience. With dancer Tempest and musician Nathaniel Johnstone as your guides, you’ll explore the key parts of several rituals and how actively discover how different sacred movements, gestures and dance steps can be applied to enhance your spiritual practice– for groups and covens, as well as solitary practitioners. $30,
