Bellydance Murder Mystery!

Did you know Safira was also a writer? She's published her full-length mystery, Jezebel Died Dancing, on this website. Click here or on the Articles button above to read the novel. See the video introduction to the left. Enjoy a mystery story and learn about belly dance as Safira shares in fictional form some of her real-life, nonfictional belly gram experiences.

Summer Weather Policy:

If supercell thunderstorms with tornadoes, straight-line winds or large hail are near and approaching Wichita, there will be no class. After the severe weather passes, there will be class again. For instance, 7:00 pm classes may meet after a 5:00 p.m. storm passes. Use your judgement! If a tornado approaches during class (which has never yet happened), students will bring purses and cell phones -- no dance bags -- into the bathrooms. Our building has concrete and brick walls, and a double ceiling above the bathrooms.
