Tammi Fabris ~ Cabaret Belly Dance Instructor
If you are looking for just plain old belly dancing, there is nothing plain about Belly Dance Classes with Tammi Yasmine Fabris of Sirens In Sanity Belly Dance...At each class, students are encouraged to dress in colorful dance attire, skirts, harem pants, bodysuits or bras, and noisy coin belts. Sirens believe that the richness of your dress will transfer over into a richness in your dancing.

Matthew co-teaches the fire classes at Positive-I and oversees the fire safety and equipment maintenance. To balance the heat, he also supplies the drinking water at Positive-I, hydrating everyone with local well water. You may also find Matthew lending a hand with random maintenance around the facility.
