Students will be taught to work with veils and cymbals, and will become familiar with various styles of music. Kira and Kahreen teach during every class, students are taught proper isolations, shimmies, and awareness of music. Basic steps, combinations, and choreographies will be taught. Students who become proficient in these classes and this style, are eventually encouraged to join the advanced (dance company) class taught by Kira, and are encouraged to perform. Please note that a student wishing to take intermediate class, will be allowed to do so only after instructor gives their approval. Because these classes are ongoing and there is a continuity of material that is taught, students should attend as many classes as possible. Drop ins are not encouraged. In addition to challenging technique and innovative material, the student will be provided links to video clips that will allow them to review material taught between classes.

Kira's rhythms and combinations workshop was so successful, that whe will be focusing and continuing on with material taught during the workshop during her level II classes for the rest of the year.

These classes offer the student the chance to study under two different instructors! Kahreen and Kira, both teach during every one of these classes - giving the student the opportunity to experience two different styles. This is a special collaborative event for both teachers, and no other location offers two teachers during one class!
