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. 

In addition to the layout and fancy mobile responsiveness, we have added many new elements, including a page dedicated to students new to belly dance, an introduction to Saffron Dance's Mission and Core Values, this nifty new blog by yours truly, and an entire section dedicated to our ten resident Student  Companies.  We are also excited about the new views for all the workshops, future and past events reflecting the depth and breadth of programming in the studio.  So take a look and let us know what you think. 

So it is with great respect and gratitude that I offer my thanks to Mayyada Sabri of for her expertise in Drupal functionality and the API that makes all of the content flow seamlessly; to the endlessly talented Elena Faye, for her overall project management, creativity, and content organization that kept the project moving forward; to Tracy and Alex for their keen eyes in editing; to Victoria Teel for making sure we had all of the content to enhance your experience with the studio; to our designer, Franklin, for his elegant page and font design; and to you, our Saffron Dance community as a whole, for being our muse, and by revealing the diverse, creative and inspiring group of dancers and supporters that this new website reflects. 

With the deepest gratitude and appreciation.  

From my heart to your hips,
