Traveling extensively to create productions and teach seminars that embody her unique style of dance and dance education, Jillina also advocates a local dance community, owning the creative hub, Evolution Dance Studios in North Hollywood, California. Whether on stage, coaching one-on-one, or teaching a group of 1,000 students, Jillina’s vibrant ability to connect with people on and off the dance floor continues to influence dancers and entertain audiences worldwide.

Kalae Kaina

Born and raised in Hawaii of native Hawaiian ancestry, Kalae has developed a deep love for belly dance. She is the Artistic Director and choreographer for Shakti Dance Movement, Honolulu’s premier Contemporary Fusion Bellydance Company. Shakti Dance Movement has emerged from the underground club scene to the mainstream, performing regularly at nightclubs, community events, dance concerts, and private parties. The artistry she brings to her craft is evident in her work as a performer & choreographer. Fusion Bellydance is an integrative style that blends elements from other dance forms such as contemporary, pop & lock, flamenco, and classical Indian dance, to name a few. This fusion of dance styles, also called Transnational Dance, is Kalae's specialty. She has been studying Belly Dance for over 20 years and has a wealth of knowledge to share! She is currently teaching classes online via Patreon. Kalae Kaina has been sponsoring workshops and producing shows in Honolulu, celebrating dance, and supporting the arts within her community. Kalae’s approach to belly dance is rooted in strong technique, drills, and proper execution of movement. She passionately believes in dance as a vehicle for mind and body connection.

In this contemporary Fusion Bellydance choreography, we will focus on the connective tissue between movements, the juicy transitions and subtle nuances that transform a standard sequence of movements into poetry. Concepts in musicality will also be presented, as we transition from following the melody, to the down beat, to highlighting various parts of the music. Have fun playing with dynamics as we shift from lyrical movement to pops and locks! This class is built for dancers who have some basic understanding of Bellydance vocabulary, options will be offered for all levels.
