Hello and welcome to the Beledi Dance Caravan.  This is a summary of the dancers who participate with the BDC.  While we DO participate together at various venues, we are not a dance "troupe" but more members that can be counted on to help promote our special shows around the local Boulder/Denver areas.

Our mission is to recruit new dancers and participants no matter what your experience and level of dance may be.  In fact, we are looking for dancers who have never tried it before.  Several of our new dancers are listed here, including my daughter and her business associate. 

If you would like to try dancing to some of our choreographies, please contact us to learn more about our promotion and mini-choreography sessions.  Remember, no experience is necessary.  We simply want to give you the opportunity to try it out for yourself and see if you like it. 

Remember that Dance is for EVERYONE - Won't you come dance with us?

HABINA


Dance is something that has chosen me and it continues to do so of its own volition.  My experience includes training in Modern and African dance.  I have also explored Salsa, Argentine Tango, Hula and Flamenco. There are moments in time when musical selections choose me by planting a phrase of choreography in my mind. My hope is to demonstrate theunion that I feel music makes with my body; very specific movements require detailed interpretation and manifestation. Those sections solicit the skeletal choreography, the initial step in beginning the bond with the music.  After a time, my own body will show me what fits where once my bones recognize various patterns of the music.  It is to me, a meditation on the sounds and how they feel during an experience of inside me; a journey I hope to lead you, as the viewer with me.


AMINA

Amina Salah is a local belly dance professional and instructor in Egyptian Belly Dance and zill work in the Boulder/Denver area.  She travels annually to Egypt to study with several of the top masters to perfect her techniques and bring her knowledge back to her students and audience.    She has been dancing professionally for more than 15 years and is currently working on a certificate in yoga instruction as well. 

CECILE

Cecile is a long time associate of the Beledi Dance Caravan and brings to us her delightful and playful choreograpies.  The dancer is a partner with the music.  If, after the performance, the audience has forgotten either the dancer or the music, the dancer has failed.
