Pink Lotus:
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.
