Beauty and the Beast Within Performance Project w/ Leona

Saturday, November 6, 2021

WHAT: Beauty and Beast Within
Within all of us is a battle that has been brewing a life time: Beauty and the Beast – our demons and monsters vs our passion, gifts and light.
Both sides are part of us and make us who we are, without the dark, there is no light.
This performance project is a chance to play, to express and truly step into the dancer you are meant to be.
Join Leona from Kelowna as she guides us and takes us on a magical journey developing and building on the skills she has been teaching this past year. This performance is geared for all levels and focuses on an improvisational format that she will lead you in.

Dance is and always will be Balm for the soul. This video project will debut at “Wish List”, the Bellyqueen School Winter virtual Showcase on Saturday, December 11th 4-6pm ET.

Meet Leona! Currently located in the Okanagan she has been bellydancing for almost 2 decades; performing, teaching and furthering her own training in this ancient art form. Leona’s smooth transitions, beautiful hip work and captivating smile make her one of the most sought after bellydance artists in B.C. Beginning her training early on with Slovenian Folkloric dance, it was a natural transition into Middle Eastern Dance back in 2001. Leona’s passion for bellydance is as strong today as it was back then.
