About your Instructors:
Ashima has been studying various forms of belly dance for 10 years. She has always had a love of dance; from ballet, tap, jazz and modern to salsa and belly dance. She has studied classical, urban, tribal and fusion styles of belly dance with several renowned instructors. Ashima sees belly dance as a form of meditation, personal expression, and a way to connect with a wonderful sisterhood of women.
Jasmina has been belly dancing for over 10 years, and has a true passion for the art. Jasmina discovered that this ritual dance movement was done in the temples of Egypt to honor the Goddesses: in times when women were oppressed, they danced together to connect with their spirituality, self-expression, and each other. Her goal is to share the beauty and healing nature of this ancient, sacred dance.
