    Alys Shilo and Malika Moon invite you to:

    Crafting Dance Alchemy

    Creating sacred adornments and activating them with embodied Bellydance.

    Join with sisters for a transformative day where the art of crafting meets the essence of dance. Guided by experienced facilitators with over 25 years of combined expertise, this workshop invites you to explore the deep connection between crafting your dance adornments and infusing them with your unique energy.  This is a wonderful opportunity to come together in unity and empowerment as we dance, craft, and uplift each other.

    All sisters, regardless of experience or background, are warmly welcomed.

    Your facilitators and their offerings:

    Alys Shilo - Hexian

    For more than ten years, Alys Shilo has been a captivating presence on stage and in sacred circles, creating custom costumes for herself and her fellow dancers. Through her brand 'Hexian,' she embodies the spirit of femininity, infusing each piece with positive energy and intention. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted using high-quality materials, designed to be cherished as a future heirloom.

    At Crafting Dance Alchemy, Alys welcomes you to explore self-expression and ornamentation. Under her expert guidance, you will create a personalised sacred dance belt made to size and mirroring your individuality. Using a variety of provided metal elements, chains, crystals, and embellishments, she will assist you in crafting a masterpiece that echoes your personal dance journey.

    In addition to providing all necessary tools and materials, Alys offers a range of additional components available for purchase, allowing you to continue your creative journey beyond the workshop. Whether you're drawn to embodied bellydance or seek to adorn yourself for other styles of movement, your personal creation will serve as a potent symbol of empowerment and grace.

    Malika Moon - Embodied Bellydance

    Malika’s movement experience expands beyond linear knowledge and the 11+ years she’s been bellydancing. After decades battling with overwhelming shame and total disconnection from the heart and body, Malika found her way onto a deep healing path which was intricately entwined with her Bellydance journey.  Malika's unique path has inspired her gentle & compassionate facilitating style; and her devotion to personal evolution via presence & embodiment is woven throughout her Bellydance offerings.

    During Crafting Dance Alchemy, Malika will take you on a sacred journey of inner exploration and empowerment as she weaves together the transformative elements of embodied movement, bellydance, meditation and ritual throughout our immersive workshop. Malika will guide you to connect with your highest self, inviting you to delve deep into your inner sanctuary and awaken your innate potential. Through her nurturing presence, we'll tap into the wellspring of nourishment & wisdom held within our bodies; infusing and activating our adorned creations with the radiance and ancient power of the feminine, as we dance in celebration and invocation of our divine essence.
