Welcome to this 9th year of intensive summer training
 in Tribal Style Bellydance in Copenhagen.

It is with great pleasure we present you with the 2098 program, where we have given much
consideration into giving you 4 days of total dance bliss with both room to the essential
social connection between you dancers as well as possibility of challenging
your dance-self in moving forward in your
skills, technique and art making.

 Each training day will have a flow thru all classes
 - and the flow will continue between the days. 

Besides training, we will also have social dancing and fun:
Hafla night on Friday evening

Dud & Lisa will beforehand have created a choreography project, meaning a formation /movement structure – easy and simple, but so much fun when the project comes to life within one class.

We will split class into 2 project groups, doing the same project – but then we can perform for each other in the closing party
