New Studio Coming Soon

After a several month transition, it looks like Caldera will finally have a new home in February! It's in one of the coolest historic buildings in town, right on the main drag, and will be a very lively space for creativity and movement - something we've been sorely lacking since Silverton Movement Center closed. Yoga, pilates, dance, massage and lots, lots more. Stay tuned for details about the new location and new Silverton class offerings early next month!

8 Elements Cultivation

I'm proud to announce that I have completed and passed both the written and practical exams of Cultivation, the second phase of Rachel Brice's 8 Elements program! This 50 hour training was incredibly intense, and I found it challenging on many levels - physically, mentally, emotionally. I am going to be processing for some time to come, but suffice it to say that it was a life changing experience. For now I am letting that experience percolate deep down into my being, and I can't wait to see how it influences my future development as an artist.

Tribal Summit a Success!

Our weekend of workshops with Kathy Stahlman, former member of FCBD® and founder of Tribal Moon, was a great success!  More than 20 students from Colorado and beyond came together for three fun filled days of dance, shopping, performances and camaraderie. Plans are already in the works for next year's event. Stay tuned, as we will be announcing our guest instructor soon!

Caldera a FatChanceBellyDance® Sister Studio!

Well I'm back from St. Louis and am thrilled to announce that I completed my ATS® Teacher Training with Carolena Nericcio-Bohlman, the creator of American Tribal Style® belly dance, and Megha Gavin, director of Devyani Dance Company. This two day training was a follow up to the General Skills certification I received in 2012.

I have also been granted Sister Studio status, which means that I am committed to teaching ATS® in its purest form. There are Sister Studios operating all over the world.  Caldera is the third Sister Studio in Colorado, and the only one on the Western Slope or in the Four Corners area!  I am excited to share my passion for and knowledge of this dance form with a broader regional audience in the months and years to come!
