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.
Come on out and support Desert Wind this summer!
Does traditional belly dance stand the test of time?
When fusion dancers adopt the moves, gyrations, and mystique of the old, can
they also take the magic? In an alternate, post apocalyptic reality, Desert
Wind speculates on the blend of purity with anarchy. A simple ball holds the
world (of dance) together. A spellbinding show where, once again, DW
portrays the path not taken by many.
