Welcome to Desert Wind!
Desert Wind Belly Dance has been operating in Lethbridge for 9 years. We are a fusion troupe, which means we incorporate other styles of dance in to our choreographies and classes. As the "fun" troupe in Lethbridge (yes, we are so-called), we are most interested in spreading the joy of dance to women of all ages, shapes and sizes in classes, and spreading that same joy (along with fiery energy and craziness) to audiences of all ages. "Spreading the Joy" is our motto, our slogan, our definition; we are so fortunate to be asked to share our wily passions with our community.
We are an eclectic group of women who study, practice and obsess over the art of belly dance in all it’s forms. Desert Wind began in 2002 when Chelsie Grenier began teaching in Lethbridge. Our troupe today is comprised of dancers from many schools, including ballerinas, hip hop dancers, tap dancers, modern dancers, and of course some of Chelsie’s very first belly dance students. We pride ourselves in our original, collaborative choreographies that are often tailor-made for our audiences.
Really, Desert Wind is all about SPREADING THE JOY of dance. Shimmy on girls!
