FLOOR MASTERS DANCE CAMP 2019 IS BACK FOR A THIRD YEAR! FOR 2 DAYS OF FUN, TRAINING, AND DANCE THE BIGGEST DANCE CAMP IN THE CARIBBEAN -2 DAYS OF DANCE -11 CLASSES - 8 STYLES -1 NIGHT OF BEASTT DANCE BATTLES -4 INTERNATIONAL CHOREOGRAPHERS -1 REGIONAL CHOREOGRAPHER -3 LOCAL CHOREOGRAPHERS DATES: SATURDAY 31ST AUGUST, 2019  SUNDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER, 2019 TIME: SATURDAY: 9 AM - 9 PM BeasTT Battles: 7pm SUNDAY: 9 AM - 7 PM LOCATION: Jean Pierre Complex Izzy - Afro beats - Nigeria/NYC Iziegbe “Izzy” Odigie is a 22-year-old Afro-fusion dancer/choreographer who is killing it. Born in Brooklyn, but she grew up in Edo State (Nigeria), Izzy started dancing at a young age while in boarding school and rose to the top. In 2007, she moved to the states and trained in hip-hop and other dance styles. While in university she co-founded the TRŸBE Dancerz which are a talented group of fierce, female African dancers that are not only busting the best dance moves but creating the trends as well. While in this group, she performed at many events for several Afrobeats artists. One of her first viral videos was with her dancing on stage with Ugandan Artist, Eddy Kenzo. This video of Izzy went viral on Instagram and other social media networks.  From then on, Izzy has danced in numerous music videos, performed at One Africa Fest, working with the likes of Tiwa Savage, Mr. Eazi, and more. In 2017 her choreography for Dj Flex – Eggplant went viral as she introduced her Eggplant Tour, where she teaches her choreography. Brinda Guha - Indian Contemporary - NYC Based on the core of the Contemporary Indian style lies the fusion of the intricacies of classical Indian dance: footwork, expression, and hand movements, with targeted exercises to provide for a fulfilling and fresh contemporary dance routine at the end of every class. This class attempts to investigate the communicative potential when merging western dance traditions with a classical Indian foundation. It starts with a vigorous yet meditative warm-up and proceeds to elaborate on Indian classical and contemporary technique. This leads to a dynamic movement language and exchange and leaves the dancer with a clear understanding of the relevance and importance of Indian aesthetic in the performing arts. Russha -Kai Williams - Trinidad and Tobago My name is Russha Kai Williams, born, bred and raised in the sweet isles of Trinidad and Tobago. Ever since I’ve known myself I’ve been fascinated and drawn towards most things pertaining to fitness, health, and the human body. I began gymnastics at the tender age of 6, where I reached the competitive level. After spending just about 11 years as a gymnast, I branched off into the field of dance. I was always intrigued by modern/contemporary dance. I’m a sucker for good, soulful music (mainly old school). Music does something to my body and I always feel the need to express it; through dance, stretching or some form of movement. I spent one and a half years performing with the Universoul Circus (US based), where I was able to represent my country (Trinidad and Tobago), on an international level. Currently, I’m a stretch/flexibility instructor, personal trainer, gymnastics coach (for over 10 years) and completed 200 hours to become a Yoga instructor. I truly believe that the human body is the best form of art. When I began my company/brand “Perfect-Sea” years ago, my goal then (and now) has remained the same; to allow individuals to become comfortable with their bodies and for humans to recognize how amazing our bodies are, no matter the shape, structure or size. I am Perfect-Sea and I represent ART. Terry David - African- Trinidad and Tobago Terry David, Choreographer, Dance Educator, Instructor /Lecturer at the Academy for the Performing Arts and Folk Dance Specialist. Founder and Artistic Director of the Terry David Performing Theatre. Represented Trinidad and Tobago on numerous occasions both locally and internationally as a dance Ambassador and Folk Dance Specialist.

Andre Arneaud is the other half. “ITS THE HOW”  is the very tagline of the dancing brothers. They aim to inspire and entertain any interested audience through dance. A strong parental foundation contributes mostly if not entirely to the creative energy and effort put in to what they do. It starts them off, gets them through and at no point in time is taken for granted. Rene and Andre have worked with soca artistes such as Machel Montano and Kes the band. Their dancing has also given them the opportunity to branch off into the world of theatre and be an integral part of the DC SHELL THEATRE family, where they have been blessed to be exposed to the experience that it has to offer. They have taken part in a number of productions and competitions, locally and internationally and have been successful in achieving the world hip hop dance championship title in 2007 and the digicel rising stars title in 2006. Dren’s journey is still unfolding in new directions everyday and they continue to be passionate and draw inspiration from positivity in the world today. They enjoy HOW they do, what they do and are very thankful for the opportunity to do it.

Welcome to Wisdome LA - new immersive art park in Arts District We are dedicated to presenting the avant-garde transformational experiences and unforgettable events in a unique Los Angeles Arts District multiple projection domes setup.

Good samskara is driven by positive experiences and deeds, while negative samskara is the result of evil or selfish thoughts and actions. Samskara allows us to experience inner conflicts, conflicts between people, nations, religions, and generations, through which we evolve to a more industrial world and end up with complete destruction... but total devastation clears the path for rebirth and revival, and the eternal quest for light, magic, goodness and harmony in better, more spiritual, realms. You make the choice...
