Magnolia’s elegant and powerful modern Oriental style is the result of years of dedication to belly dance. Magnolia’s performances engage and delight audiences with a mix of classical and modern techniques that include floorwork, double veils, drum solos, and much more!
But wait, not only is Magnolia teaching, she’ll also be giving you personalized feedback. Wait, what? Most dancers go to workshops ready to learn and hoping for that nod from the teacher or quick correction as the teacher walks past. What if the teacher were watching you with the intent to have a personal conversation with you later about your dance goals? What if that teacher had your best interest at heart and wanted to see you succeed? Can you imagine how much your dance would change if you went to a few workshops like this over the course of a year? This is groundbreaking, folks. This is what happens when dancers strive to lift each other up. Come join us!
