Posted on Updated on

Finishing up our lighter summer schedule here at Passion101. We have a lot planned for the fall- so stop back for updates!


Thursday August 2, 7pm
Erotic Bellydance 101
with Tahnee

Bellydance has long been regarded as one of the most exotic and sensual of dance art forms the world over, and now you can learn the basics for harnessing these beautiful serpentine movements yourself!

Through learning graceful posture as well as basic movements such as isolations and undulations, students will learn to charm, tease, and seduce with body language…all in a fun and engaging setting!

Please dress comfortably, bring water, and prepare to go barefoot! Class size will be very limited due to space restrictions.

Presenter Bio:

Tahnee has been known as the “smiling face” and self-styled “resident big girl” of PASSIONAL Boutique and Sexploratorium for the past year, using her sense of humor and easy going personality to share knowledge and information with all she comes across. A fat-positive pagan kinky queer femme, she lives her life through the active exchange of experience with others.

She has studied different forms of dance intermittently through her life, with tribal fusion and Middle Eastern bellydance being her passion for over 2 years and views  it as part of her spiritual practice. She is a member of Ekstasis Bellydance, a tribal fusion troupe based out of Philadelphia and Lehigh County.
