SILK ROAD PRESENTATIONS

I am often invited to put on a dance performance as well as presenting a demo and lecture introducing dances, music, and history from regions throughout the Silk Road, including India, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, N. Africa, Morocco, Spain, Turkey, etc. On 2/3/17, I presented such a lecture including a Syrian belly dance performance. There couldn't have been a more appropriate and opportune time for this presentation to create ease in these uncertain times of fear and unrest in our country. What a thrill it was to share the knowledge of cultures of peoples who are currently being questioned and detained by authority in the USA. My lecture bridged the gap and created much needed compassion amongst my people. They were so touched that my new friends promised go out in peace and share this knowledge of love in their own way as I do through dance and music. As my new scientist friend, Ben, who lived in Russia through the "stupid" Cold War and is close with scientist friends of Iranian decent who currently live in worry said, "We are all human on this earth and art is one of the BEST ways to make a positive impact to promote compassion, understanding and unity of humanity." 2/3/17 https://tinyurl.com/zow6qyc

Reviews



 A nice review of my class by a student at San Francisco State University –
 
Dear Campus Recreation Department,

I heard that the lineup for Fall 2016 dance/aerobic classes will be reviewed soon and I would like to give my word of recommendation for Rasa's Mad Shake Appeal rotating international style dance class.

I've sampled almost all of Campus Rec's free, dance, aerobic and yoga classes and teachers like Rasa are hard to find (on top of that, having her available for free is amazing). With some teachers, it just feels like they can't quite put themselves in students' positions and they just come to class to stand at the front and show off or to be in a world on their own without explaining moves. Rasa doesn't do that; she understands that everyone can do something if they truly want to and is always trying to come up with new and creative ways to explain her cool, sexy moves.She also comes to class with the most amazing stories from her travels, including the history and background behind the dance. For example, last semester she talked about Persian history and how oppression has affected and molded their subtle and flirtatious moves.

I can be a very rambunctious, outspoken and energetic dancer, and for some dance teachers, this is a problem. But with Rasa, I never feel like she can't keep up or like my energy will be unappreciated. And somehow, she can sense the room's total energy in order to organically shape our learning session to fit each week's composition. She's also very punctual and precise. 

Due to all of the above stated reasons, I humbly present for your consideration in this Fall's dance teacher lineup, Rasa Vitalia.

Thank you for your time,
Robin G.
