Body positive dance for everyone!(Rajni) Rajni will present an introduction to basic Egyptian style dance steps and the Tribal Odyssey style of "follow the leader" group improvisation. Group improvisation allows people to dance in the moment and connect to the music and to other dancers. It is a powerful way to honor your body, raise positive energy, and enjoy dancing with others.
Handbook for Hot Witches.(Dame Darcy) An introduction to Darcy's book along with different arts and activities taken from the book.
Introduction to Middle Eastern Drum Rhythms. (Rajni) Presentation will cover 3-4 basic rhythms with time to practice.

All levels welcome. Instruction will focus of the dumbek, but djembes and other drums are welcome. There will be a few drums to loan.
