Illumination Dance Studio
Studio owner Khalima’s knack for putting others at ease helps her students to drop their inhibitions in favor of fun, sensual choreography. Khalima and her highly trained staff host seminars in several styles, ranging from classic and tribal to improvisational fusion. They showcase their steps on a sprung wood floor, twirling in front of a mirrored wall to better examine their form and check to see if their navels are still fastened. Whether they are hosting a weekly series, a special workshop, or a private party, the teachers preserve a welcoming atmosphere for guests of all ages and abilities.
