  For this years showcase we will be at the SteamPlant Theater.  Dress rehearsal is May 8 and the show will be Friday, May 9.  We will be ordering costumes over the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for more information.  We will be looking for backstage help and generating sponsors for our programs.  Please e-mail Andrea if you have any time to help making this show bigger and better than last years.

Let's Zumba!

  Jane Templeton is teaching Beginning Irish Step dancing!  Classes are Monday 5-6PM, and the cost is $10 a class.  In this class you will learn the basics of Irish stepdancing, as made popular by “Riverdance”.  This beginning class will focus on “soft shoe” dances:  reel, light jig, single jig, and slip jig.  No previous dance experience is necessary.  Students should dress in lightweight, comfortable clothing, and wear either ballet shoes or lightweight shoes with a very flexible sole.


  Miss Kat is also offering Belly Dance Mondays 7-8p.m. and Ecstatic Dance Saturdays at 7p.m..  Ecstatic dance is an umbrella term to describe a number of dance practices. Practices use dance and movement to explore our social, psychological, and spiritual lives.  Ecstatic dance is usually improvisational and open to all ages and abilities. There is usually an element of moving meditation. 5 Rhythms is a trademarked ecstatic dance practice pioneered by Gabrielle Roth in the 1960s.

5 rhythms dances are called "waves," because that is the shape that the flow of the music accompaniment takes. Dancers begin moving to flowing rhythms then move through the rhythms of staccato, chaos, lyrical, and stillness. 5 rhythms is done barefoot and there is generally a no talking rule during each wave. Shouts, grunts, or other vocalizations are welcome though. 5 rhythms can be facilitated by a leader or just take the form of an open dance.  Call Kat at 719-588-1371 for more information.

Past performances and Thanks

2013 Flash Mob

Thank you for those of you who learned the dance and performed.  It was so much fun learning a different style of Jazzy Funk and bringing it to the Roller Derby Half time special and Mr. Mossman's home room class.  

Once again I want to comment you all for the amazing job you all did for at the end of the year dance showcase.  I am so proud and delighted at your improvement and dedication to learning and performing dance.  I had a great first year and look forwar the the next show.

Our Valentine's Day gathering, One Billion Rising, brought awareness of violence towards women and girls. The turnout was unbeleavable! Salida stepped it up to raise awareness for this global revolutionary campaign to end violence against women and girls. We danced on F Street with women worldwide participating in a flash mob and gathering.   We connected, danced, shared stories and spread awareness in our amazing town. 

Check out the video on YouTube.

Thank you Salida for joining us in bringing awareness and community to our ever growing  mountain town.  
For more information on this global revolution check out www.onebillionrising.org.  

Let's keep moving Salida!!
