Hello summer lovers,

Another short newsletter this month.

I have a new performance video to share with you from Kazakhstan, new online dance classes, and a sneak peek at Bellydance Cohesion 2020 training dates.


"Caravan of Lanterns" a Bellydance Cohesion Stage 1 Choreography

This Saturday June 29th I will debut the latest and greatest version of this choreography with the addition of Cohesion-style finger cymbal layers! Wish me luck at the Austin Belly Dance Convention

By engaging with these drills regularly, you will be able to observe and be delighted by your own progress (in isolation technique and finger cymbals)!

This online class is appropriate for beginners and advanced bellydancers.

P.S. If any true beginners out there find this class a bit too challenging, please send me an email because I have a tip for you that will help you start where you are and start having fun with it!

Have fun soaking up the sun,

April Rose

"I was attracted to April Rose's Bellydance Cohesion program because it combined dance technique practice with the Middle Eastern music, culture, and history that I believe is critical to every belly dancer's education, regardless of stylization. The Bellydance Cohesion Stage 1 Enrichment Course and Stage 1 Teacher Training delivered all that and more! I was so impressed by April Rose's clear instruction, clean technique, and attention to efficient and safe biomechanics. The dance drills are thoughtfully designed and can be stacked to suit beginners while also challenging more experienced students. Music and history are included in every unit, as well as improvisation exercises to connect dancers to the joy of movement and music. There is also an emphasis on dance as a way to connect with yourself and others and enrich your life, the cherry on top that I didn't expect. As a student, this is the sort of program I want to take; as a teacher, this is the sort of program I wish I had been teaching this whole time." - Mariza
