    In other words, I'll go to these three teachers no questions asked. Those three teachers are - in no particular order: Cory Zamora, Alexandra King (of Santa Barbara), and Fahtiem. At one time, there was a fourth: Kamaal - but he's retired now, and was the ONLY male to make my short list.

    Other excellent instructors in SoCal would include Mesmera, Aziza Sa'id (retired I think), Helena Vlahos, Angelika Nemeth, Princess Farhana , and Paulina. I'd probably ask what their workshop was about before I signed up, but they're all WONDERFUL.

    So take a day, and drive to Fresno for a Cory intensive. You'll thank me.
    I would Zorba,but I don't have a car and I don't drive,so that would leave Cory out for me. How do you pronounce Fahtiem's name btw?

    Are you sure Cory doesn't come to my area anymore to teach at the Senior Citizen's Center? I think she used to do that. Would be easier on me since I live so close to the Senior Citizen's Center.

    You'd think Fahtiem would be pronounced "Fah Tee Em", but it isn't. its "Fah Teem"

    I have no idea - give her a shout and ask. I know she's been doing workshops in the LA basin from time to time.

I lifted my skirt, spread it wide, and replied, "Here I am, dancing in a huge ass SKIRT, do I look like I can be embarrassed?" Hilarity ensued!
