Belly Dance for Girls of All Ages
Tess formed dance workshops taught by her own teacher, Anahata. Together they created an 8 week workshop that allowed girls of all ages to come each week to explore the beauty of belly dance and to instill a healthy confidence for body image and self-love. The dancers were cast from the class to create the Pink Lotus: Belly Dance for Girls of All Ages.
Tess felt the need to create and design the costumes for the DVD, which is available for dance wear clothing line.
The accessory line (hip scarf, dancing scarf, and headband) was produced in Bali and distributed throughout the world through an online shop CarLou Interactive Media & Publishing.
The DVD was produced in 2005 and was distributed through Amazon, as well as live events and indie online shops.
Bella Wishes character became an animated 3-d character who danced with the younger dancers in a bonus chapter on the DVD.
