Class Showings after Winter Session (all classes)

Saturday, March 17, 2018
1:30–3:00pm in the Minneapolis Studio Accessibility symbol.

These class "showings" are not formal performances but a chance to show what you've been learning and polishing. It's for all levels, so you can see what's in store for you. Free and open to the public, it's a chance for you to invite friends and family to see your progress and to have fun!

Review of a previous Class Showings


"The class showing was SPECTACULAR!
Even people who were shy in class were thrilled to be performing and had great energy during the show. Students were excited to show what they knew. There was even one class that had only one student performing, but she went on accompanied by her teacher and did a great job!
The students who watched the upper levels perform were excited and inspired to see what else they could learn. The audience clapped along and supported the performers with great energy."

Oasis Camp Egypt

March 18-30, 2018

13 days & 14 nights of Egypt including Nile cruise!

People who want to explore the dance, music, antiquities, and food of Egypt now have a unique opportunity to travel to the country and be immersed in the culture. A once-in-a lifetime trip from March 18-30, 2018 is being made possible through the efforts of Jean Courter, longtime organizer of the Oasis Dance Camps in the U.S., and Egyptian tour director Ehab Mahmoud. Cassandra will bring her experience as dancer, Egyptophile, and world traveler to share with participants.

“This tour is different and special, even from other dancer tours offered in Egypt,” said Courter. This tour is a cultural emersion experience, not a dance workshop.

For more information, check out the Oasis Dance Camp website or read all about your exciting trip of a lifetime in this edition of Beledi Beat!
