You can come to belly dancing with no prior dance and learn a fun and enjoyable dance. -Grace

If you read Saffron's Mission & Values, you'll notice that "community" and "collaboration" are two of our five Core Values.  We aim to use these values as guidelines by which we make decisions, design our programming, and conceptualize our role as a studio.  This weekend we hosted "Wanderlust," a very special Salla show that perfectly reflected the values of community and collaboration and reminded me of why we make it a point to recognize the importance of these ideals.


Perhaps one of the most rewarding aspects of my role at Saffron is having the honor of working with our amazing teachers. And while we continue to attract and grow new talent, we occasionally have to bid farewell to members of our faculty.  Today I would like to take the opprtunity to say goodbye to Adriane and Tesia, two wonderful Saffron teachers who are transitioning to new opportunities and opening new chapters in their lives.  But before they go I thought it only right to honor them as our Saffronitas of the Month and to share with you why and how they inspire us.


Show Reflections

Coming off an evening as dynamic as that of Sunday night's Winter Showcase always forces me into self and studio reflection.  It's no secret that show day was an extremely intense and adrenaline-filled experience for us as a community.  But each time we do a show together, and particularly when we launch a new venue, I am completely and utterly amazed at the team we have to execute a full length dance production.  Within a two hour period, we raised a stage complete with 12 ft black backdrop, professional lighting, multiple-camera videography, and created a seating environment for our 200 closest friends and family in preparation for a very exciting evening for dancers & guests.


A Huge Hunk of Gratitute

It is no accident that one of the core values of Saffron Dance is "community" and no better example of how that manifests than with our brand new website.  The entire creation  - from function to form & pros to presentation  - was created, built, designed and authored almost entirely by Saffronitas!  We think our new online presentation finally reflects the diversity, creativity and collaboration that oozes throughout our space.
