Aszmara Workshops Show -April 8& 9, 2016
INSPIRATION, INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION & FEEDBACK from one of the Great Masters of Bellydance
Friday night's show experience a Red Tent show, workshop and vegan potluck .Azmara has 2 thrilling workshops to inspire .
Aszmara takes us on our own internal dance journey so we can get deep within ourselves. A true artist does not imitate dance moves but becomes them and embodies the music. We explore the mystical traditions of the Middle East that influence our dance on stage.
Bio: “Dance is emotion in motion” describes accurately the quality of Aszmara’s dance. She impresses through her expressive stage presence and interprets the music with her own blend of modern and ethnic Arab and Turkish dance which The New York Times describes as “intense”. Throughout her over three decade career, performances range from cabaret entertainment to full concert stage creating themed concert events, folkloric and innovative dances. Workshop sponsors in the USA and Europe repeatedly bring her back for her vast knowledge and informed teaching conveying technical and performance skills.

Exciting Cabaret Kashlima is one of Aszmara's favorite joyous dance rhythms.
