Kajira in IA Deadline June 30th!

Don’t forget to register for Kajira’s American Tribal Style Belly Dance workshop before June 30th. No registration applications will be accepted after the deadline.

Remember, Kahira is coming all the way from Hawaii, and it will certainly be a lot cheaper to take a class from Karija when she’s in Iowa rather than making the trip to Hawaii. Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

Registration is due June 30! Signup as soon as you can before the spaces are filled and the deadline arrives.
