#PHXRisingDanceFest

Terri Walden

Workshop Topic: Sassy Skirt Salamat Style

Be sure to bring your s'ass (pun intended) to this fun and invigorating workshop. You will also need  a 10 to 25 yard skirt, the bigger the better! We will learn fun ways to layer skirt work onto basic steps common to the ATS /IT'S world, as well as signature Salamat skirt combos. Filled with attitude and sass, these combos are well suited for use in groups as well as solos. Terri is coming coming out of retirement for this event, so be sure to bring your spirit and skirts, Salamat!

She studied with Andrea Radoccia and before long, was teaching a basic class in Prescott Arizona. This led to the formation of Troupe Salamat in 1998.

Terri is widely recognized as a Grandmother of Improvisational Tribal Style Bellydance in Mexico, and has presented many workshops and intensives in the region. her students and their students have spread Salamat Style throughout Mexico and beyond.
   “Improvisational tribal belly dance has been one of the most impactful and rewarding things I have ever done. I have met the best people through this pursuit, and it has led me on a path of personal growth and evolution that I am eternally grateful for.”
