Jessikah's 8:00pm choreography class is a fun, fast-paced class, and great exercise. We learn dances in class to be performed at local events with a student troupe. Prior dance experience is highly suggested. We will dance with and without props, and learn stage techniques as well as Jessikah breaking down the choreography, so it's easy to learn. The 7:00pm drills & technique class lays the foundation for those who are brand new to belly dance, introducing moves, focus on technique and drills. Jessikah and Ellie lead the Desert Dragons student belly dance troupe, at Mik Nao Dance Studio. Students who wish to perform with the student troupe are expected to attend the choreography class weekly. Regular students may perform with the Desert Dragons student troupe at a variety of events throughout the year.
