Sahara Storm Productions has begun to travel outside of Alaska to Washington, Las Vegas, and Texas to share the wonder of belly dance, fire performance and circus arts with others, but don’t worry Alaska is our first love and will remain our home over the long haul. Be assured you can catch us all over the Valley, Big Lake and Anchorage doing community projects, fundraisers, and private events.
Come see us at Art on Fire, the Palmer Garden Faire, and Trapper Creek Bluegrass for fantabulous all ages family fun, and at Playhouse for our fantastic variety Burlesque shows. You can have any of our performers come to your event, and we do private shows and parties at our studio for all ages. The possibilities are truly endless! We have brought on an airbrush artist, face painters, and balloon twisting specialists that can entertain for family fun, or for the more bachelorette party themes. We also love to do baby belly painting for photo shoots.
Our goal is to preserve the dying circus performance arts and to keep the light and creativity burning in our youth. In our technological society we must keep kids excited about moving their bodies, exploring movement and creatively applying various performance arts to the world as they see it. The benefits of performance in adults involved in the program include confidence development, improved fitness, and a sense of belonging that many don’t realize is missing in their lives. We are actors, and we are healers.
There is something very special about circus arts that have the power to unite people! We are the beautiful freaks, the misfits, and the explorers. There is no competition in our world, only acceptance, and creative unity. We work with all skill levels. Adults come to us and discover the family, children learn to be confident, to take calculated chances, and to trust their own creative minds, and the community comes together to achieve fantastic fundraising and community service projects that could never have happened without thinking and playing outside of the box.
Saharastormstudio.com is where you can find our regular class schedule, our performance schedule, purchase tickets to our current events, register for classes or even schedule us for your own private event. We work with most ages, and all skill levels. We have the best prices in town for all of our classes! No long-term commitments and we have been an active part of this community for over eight years. We are locally owned and operated, licensed, insured and professional.
