LIMITED TIME OFFER!

Willamalane has decided to go virtual.  For the next two weeks, online classes are going to be FREE no matter where you are.  From 11/18-12/2 all Fitness at Home classes will be COMPLIMENTARY FOR ALL! Keep in mind fees will be added after 12/2, and NO CLASSES on 11/26 and 11/27.

How can you take a class for free?
Willamalane has a variety of exercise classes that will be virtual for the next two weeks. This is a great chance to exercise from the safety and comfort of the home. It is a great for people who are shy and hesitant to try a new class. It also is going to be a great learning experience for instructors to teach virtually and try out the technology in case this is something we want/need to do in the future.

Performances

Sarina performs her alternative tribal fusion belly dance style at many venues in Eugene and sometimes Portland, Oregon. Whether she is steampunk belly dancing to neo-Victorian music, using her flamenco/burseque fusion fans with a 1920's flair, gypsy skirt twirling, clowning it up at Cirque du Eugene, or fusing break dance and belly dance to a Star Trek remixed music, she brings creativity and fun to the dance. Check the website regularly for updates.
