Do you want to learn to belly dance in a fun and supportive environment? Would you like to feel empowered through ancient wisdom to gain insight into yourself while also celebrating your femininity and strength?

In her 16th year at Omega, Dondi Dahlin uses the Chinese Five Elements to reconnect us to our joy, passions, self-awareness, and a deeper understanding of others. Through belly dancing, we move into a healing relationship with our bodies that opens the doors to acceptance and gratitude.

Throughout the weekend, we experience an abundance of dancing, discussion, laughter, personal reflection, visualization, and ritual. These daughters of energy medicine pioneer Donna Eden teach us about the cultures, traditions, music, and dance in the Middle East, North Africa, and Spain. Along the way, we explore movement and technique for the beginning dancer in a safe and fun workshop for women of all body types, ages, and backgrounds.
