There will also be 5-6 guest dancers, some who are professional restaurant dancers and some who are not, but all have experience in Bellydance. Both traditional Middle Eastern styles as well as Tribal, Tribal Fusion, and Cabaret Fusion will be performed. There will also be time for open dance and drum, so bring your hip scarves, drums, and dancing feet.

***********Starting at 2:30 this month***********
Phoenix’s versatile performances are marked by grace and athleticism. Will we see a warm inviting smile and the dynamic swirl of colors in a veil dance, or a smoldering glance and a swift drop into a backbend on the floor, flourishing a gleaming sword? Whatever style Phoenix chooses to present, rest assured that his audiences will be fascinated.
Phoenix has been a member of multiple award-winning troupes, including Naimah's Amandari. He began studying the various forms of bellydance in 2008, starting with classical styles such as Egyptian Oriental and American Cabaret. As his studies expanded to include Turkish Oryantal, American Tribal Style, modern Tribal fusion. He has mixed in his background in Yoga and knowledge of the martial arts to make a dance style uniquely his own.
Phoenix currently certified Suhaila Salimpour School of Belly Dance. His solo performances have been described by Latifa as "fire made flesh, spicy, with a bouquet that hints at a fine merlot."
