A little about your instructor:
Jewels’ love affair with Belly Dance began at a young age, but her studies didn’t begin until 1999, and she began performing in 2002. Jewels is an award winning dancer, most recently named 2014 Belly Dancer USA Goddess. Jewels is known for her zill-tastic finger cymbals, stunning shimmies, captivating veil work, and her emotive and joyful stage presence. She combines ballet, tribal, Egyptian, American Cabaret to make her dancing style truly her own. She is inspired by her many belly dance friends and supporters, and continues to strive to become the best dancer that she can be.

Polaris Dance Theatre presents
Groovin’ Greenhouse 2016
featuring Portland Bellydance Guild & Polaris Dance Theatre

Festival Date: Jan 23 @ 7:30pm

Venue:
Polaris Studio Theatre
1826 NW 18th

Tickets: $18-$22

Purchase tickets: polarisdance.org
Polaris, along with guest dance companies from every corner of Portland, are working with established and emerging Portland choreographers to present brand new dance works in the Polaris Studio Theatre. This evening features Polaris Dance Theatre with a world premiere by Artistic Director and resident choreographer Robert Guitron. Guitron and his company play with innovative illumination and shadow, themes of love, loss and loneliness and grapple with identifying the mix of gifts from others that make us who we are. From full cast to intimate duet, this diverse company pulls at heartstrings and demands its audience members to think in a different way. This evening also includes a crowd pleasing performance from Portland Bellydance Guild. Bringing fresh new dance work to the festival with multiple performers, the Portland Belly Dance Guild will display the vastly different facets of bellydance! Four main styles will be represented: Folkloric/Traditional, Cabaret/Orientale, Tribal Improv and Theatrical/Fusion. The professional members of the Portland Bellydance Guild showcase bellydance from the folkloric traditions of the Middle East, Spain, India and Africa to artistic interpretations that fuse contemporary western movement. The Portland Bellydance Guild is a membership organization with a mission to increase public awareness and appreciation for dance and music rooted in, or inspired by, the middle-eastern diaspora. We are committed to inclusively cultivating the collective talents of Portland Metro area performers via instruction and community celebrations and ensuring the presence of bellydance as a vital and growing art form by offering artistically excellent productions in the Portland area and beyond.
