Assembling her lifetime of dance, music, art, and healing work, and since initiating this life­-changing style over 25 years ago, Paulette teaches around the globe, to casual dancers and the pros, and also online.

Saturday 12 noon - 2 p.m.: Traditional Tribal Technique

Learn basic and universal tribal dance moves--Gypsy Caravan© format--including discussion of tribal philosophy and history, along with technique, posture and simple formation ideas, as we learn to dance together in our dancer's circle. Definition is the key as we add more moves to our repertoire.
