Belly Dance Retreat with Zoe Jakes And Kami Liddle

Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle and Kalae Kaina

November 30, 2014 - December 8, 2014

About the Facilitator(s)

Zoe Jakes: Zoe is a proud member of The Indigo, recently on the road touring their new show Le Serpent Rouge. She has been touring with Bellydance Superstars since the fall of 2005 and can be seen performing on their new Tribal Fusions DVD. She recently finished filming her debut instructional DVD, to be released in the fall. Combining talents with David Satori and Tommy Cappel to form the band Beats Antique, which released the album Tribal Derivations last spring, Zoe is currently working on its sequel. When not with The Indigo, she tours with The Yard Dogs Road Show, a cartoon circus sideshow of wacky dimensions, and has been seen tearing it up with the Extra Action Marching Band.

Recently nominated for Zaghareets “Best Interpretive Artist 2007″, Zoe is an inarguably innovative dancer, whose unique take on Tribal bellydance takes influence from Art Nouveau, tango, Breakdance, and Indian classical dance. She loves unicorns and has never once doubted their existence. To learn more about Zoe visit http://beatsantique.com.

Kami Liddle: Kami has been dancing all her life, but found her true passion, Belly Dance, when she was 18 years old. She began to study cabaret style belly dance until she found Fat Chance Belly Dance and began to study their videos religiously.

Today Kami refers to her style as a modern fusion of an ancient dance. As she began to perform as a soloist she began to incorporate other styles into her ATS repertoire such as modern, hip hop jazz and bhangra dance. Kami has earned a degree in Art with a Minor in Dance fromthe University of Nevada, Reno and has been nominated for'Best Interpretive Artist" for 2005 and 2007 by Zaghareet Magazine. She joined Bellydance Superstars in 2005 and is a contributing choreographer as well as the director of the Tribal Superstars. Kami recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area. Kami is a Oahu favorite and has been asked back again and again to teach and perform here. Her silky moves will hypnotize and enthrall. To learn more about Kami please visit her at www.kamiliddle.com.

Kalae Kaina has been producing belly dance events and sponsoring workshops in Hawaii since 2006. Kalae is the director of Honolulu’s own, Tribal Fusion Dance Company, Shakti Dance Movement.

Aya Papaya : Since she first picked up a hoop in 2009 Aya fell in love with dancing both in and out of the hoop.

About the Facilitator(s)

Vinn MartiArjuna Vinn Marti is an award-winning choreographer, global performer, master teacher and creator of Soul Motion™ Conscious Dance Practice and has been teaching movement for over 35 years. He found his life’s calling at a young age, and, in the process of following his path, has evolved a transformative movement practice that has touched the lives of thousands.

Amara PaganoAmara Pagano first worked with Gabrielle Roth in 1991 and has been a full-time student and teacher of this work ever since. She was certified to teach 5Rhythms, Waves in 2001 and 5Rhythms, Heartbeat in 2010. Co-founder of Waves Studio in Olympia, WA, former director of the 5Rhythms program at Studio Maui and co-founder of One Dance Tribe, Amara has since developed a new practice called AZUL Conscious Dance. She believes in the power of movement to transform suffering to joy and to awaken us to live our fullest potential.

Davida TaurekDavida Taurek has a diverse background in the creative arts and is a certified instructor of Watsu, WaterDance, Motion Theater, and the 5Rhythms. She is core faculty for the Moving Center School in California and leads classes and workshops worldwide. Davida will be offering private healing sessions in Waterdance as well as leading several group experiences. Waterdance is an opportunity to immerse into quiet work of healing and transformation that leaves you not just relaxed but reborn. She will also offer a 4 hour 5Rhythms workshop and several evenings of Motion Theater that builds community and makes art out of everyday living.

Ronny TempleRonny Temple is a 5Rhythms Teacher with a wide breadth of experience in movement meditation. His most salient experiences though are in the realm of meditation and spirit. Ronny fell in love with the 5Rhythms practice around 2003 and ten years later is still in the honeymoon phase. Ronny focuses on nurturing a light heart on and off the dance floor. His teachings have a decidedly Tantric (meaning, in this context, holistic) flavor to them.
