Hall of Fame Champion


Two-time BDUC Props Champion, Natika, demystifies sword and teaches a choreography to a jubilant piece by Dr. Samy Farag.  More than an oriental fantasy or a balancing routine, dancing with sword is another way to discover your inner goddess.  Natika teaches a routine that combines sensuality, power, and musicality and is synonymous with her powerful and winning performances.  So pack your sword (or alternative balancing prop) and bring your hunger to take your dancing into new adventures.  If you don’t have a sword available, please make sure to pre-register early as there will be a limited number of swords on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Saturday Workshop 2:00-3:30 pm
