Sisterhood came up a lot when I spoke with bellydance instructor Ashley Moore (along with her toddler Pepper) and a few of her devoted students, Ashley Hutto, Alison Salisbury, and Amy Jackson. Together, they make up the Tiny Coven, the totally inclusive yet secret bellydance society who meet up at Moore’s art space at Tapp’s Art Center. For months now, Moore has been building a business and creating a movement rooted in self-care, self-love, a challenging dance curriculum, and, well, sisterhood. There’s no mistaking the bond tying these women together. There were tears and hugs and a resounding chorus of admiration for Moore’s leadership and compassion, and her patience and generosity – and, of course, her rad moves. The latest bellydance series, Tribal Fusion Bellydance, began last night at Tapp’s and runs for six weeks (there may still be a few open spots), and there are so many classes and workshops on the horizon. Listen up below for the why and how to get involved from folks committed to bellydance and learn more about these women, their personal journeys, and forging a path forward.
