Dancer Dolphina of GoddessLife will lead a workshop in Juneau this Saturday in the ballroom at Rockwell, and that evening, she’ll perform along with local musicians and dancers.
The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and costs $35, with a discount offered to UAS students. It will be part bellydance instruction and part burlesque, with an overall goal of helping dancers gain confidence. This will be Dolphina’s third round of workshops in Juneau.
Saturday night, Dolphina will put on a bellydance and burlesque variety show, also in the Rockwell Ballroom. Organized by locally owned entertainment company Knockout Productions, the show will feature local dancers who have been learning routines via video, and performances by local musicians including Sammy Burrous, C Scott Fry, Elle Z Rocks, Don Wells, and a LED hula hooping show by Kayleigh Waller, a hooper from North Carolina. Also performing are some of the local Off the Hook Honeys dance troupe and some secret surprise guests. The show runs from 8-10 p.m. and costs $20. Tickets are available at Rockwell, the Rendezvous and at the door.
Dancer Dolphina is based out of Los Angeles where she has taught belly dancing to stars such as Salma Hayek and Alyssa Milano. She has been featured on Ellen with Kevin Nealon of Weeds and Saturday Night Live, as well as the Conan O’Brien Show.
While she’s in town Dolphina will give a public blessing of the Northern Oasis Wellness Spa, located at 315 Third St., from 6:30 to 7 p.m.
