Fifth Friday Flow

Fifth Friday of the Month, 7-8pm

Hosted by  Suzy and Agnieszka from Mantra Belly Dance,
this event is open to all American Tribal Style® belly dancers;
however, there is NO instruction,
so knowing the basics is preferred. 

One person leads, the others follow.
There is no talking during this session,
allowing the dancer to become the dance.

Let the rhythm and the music take you to another place
as we dance in flow.
