This is a great opportunity to come learn from

Jill Parker: the founder of the modern Tribal Fusion belly dance phenomenon, birthed out of San Francisco California in the mid-90's.

 

Jill was an original member of FatChanceBellyDance, and founder of Ultra Gypsy Dance Theater, the trail blazing company that birthed such great dancers as Rachel Brice, Sharon Kihara, Lady Fred, Rose Harden, and countless others.

With nearly three decades of experience, Jill has trained the top belly dancers in the genre and influenced a generation of belly dancers with her modern innovations, all the while remaining deeply rooted in her connection to the traditional, sensual, and authentic.

Jill's big heart and deep love for this intoxicating form shine through in her generous teaching as well as her knockout performances worldwide.

 

She's an exceptional teacher with a gift for demystifying this intricate dance, making it accessible for new dancers, and offering insights for refinements and nuance to even the most seasoned professional dancer.
 
Jill uses creative self-expression to promote health, encourage self-care, relieve stress, and build self-esteem.

 

She fosters an inclusive sense of community and wellness in her classes.
