Get ready for something new! Balorico Guest Artist Sonia Porras from Trujillo, Peru joins us at Kenyon Hall for open classes to the public in various dances from Peru. Classes will run Mondays starting Jan. 7th from 5:30-7pm and from 7:30-9pm. Curious? Just stop by! Sonia is a 4-time national champion in the dance of the Marinera Nortena. It is a real treat and opportunity to learn from one of my best teachers. Here's a quick info link . The beauty of folkloric dance is that it is the best preparation for any partner dance activity you already do or are planning to do. Its a great way to ease into the fun of learning to take classes, get comfortable with expressing more and of course an opportunity to learn the meaning behind every movement you do. In short, if you've ever taken a class with Vanessa, you will love Sonia Porras and this opportunity to do something different solo or with a loved one. (Oh, kids are welcome!) $60/ 4 class series ( 90 minute class sess

Black Nativity!

On December 7th, our beautiful theatrical production of Black Nativity opens at the Moore Theater. I am honored to be dancing in this show next to gifted artists from Creative Outlet , the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center and The Total Experience Gospel Choir . For those that have not experienced this African American tradition in Seattle, Black Nativity is sure to uplift the soul, and get everyone moving in their seats. I look forward to seeing many of you there to celebrate this"non-denominational" spirit of the season Dec. 6-23rd. The next cycle of Balorico dance classes begins January 28th 2013 and will include the return of our Youth Ballroom classes for children, Adult social Ballroom dancing and Salsa & Bachata for the Latin-music lovers. Just drop an email note to register. As always, GIFT CERTIFICATES are always available for private lessons. Contact or 206 679-7229.
