I am a performer, I am curvy, I am not skinny. I like tight, bold clothes and have no desire to hide myself, to attempt to “minimize” anything or abide by anyone’s decision of what I should wear.

Dance Class at Studio Zahiya
Rethink happy hour with this led class and dance party from Studio Zahiya, happening Saturday, July 8 at the Orange Peel.

Studio Zahiya is on the second floor level of my favorite street in downtown Asheville. Learning to bellydance has been on my bucket list for a long time. Taking a dance class was on my to-do list every week for a year. So why did it take me so long to finally attend?

On June 5 at The Orange Peel, Barakissa Coulibaly will be premiering her solo dance piece "Without A Shadow".
