What was your biggest surpise after starting belly dance? |  "Belly dance is for women of all ages, shapes, and types.  You can see the joy it brings this variety of women in class and on the stage. The dance that is presented is more beautiful for having this variety of women than if all the students were cut from the same mold."  


Returning to Your Roots

I can’t begin to express how excited I am to return to the Kennedy Center for this evening's Alvin Ailey performance.  The Alvin Ailey Dance Company has been an inspiration to me personally and an influence on me artistically since I first saw them when I began my own modern dance journey at the age of 13. That’s right Saffronitas, I actually had a dance life before belly dance!  So much of why I fell in love the genre of work that Alvin Ailey reflects has also been evident in my journey for belly dance as an art form.

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.
