About Showgirl Shaman, Kellita
YES! As a member of the professional dance community, a 22-year Carnaval celebrant, and Queen of Carnaval SF 2008, I have the privilege of inviting you on this journey! You dance right alongside the professional Showgirls of Hot Pink Feathers — together we make a massive group of beauty and radiance, and you’ll feel right at home — being fully who you are!
This is our premiere experience of the year for stepping into your full Showgirl glory and radiance, absolutely regardless of dance experience. Truly. I’ll be teaching you and guiding you — and your Inner Showgirl will show you up and support you too! The choreography is designed to be accessible and fun and for you to shine and feel gorgeous and delicious while dancing it.
I prepared Maureen, at 50, who had never had a dance class in her life, in 6 hours for her Showgirl parade debut!
This is my 15th year bringing out the Showgirl in women and giving them an opportunity to share her through the Carnaval parade — and the women who have joined me has reported loving the experience and being so glad they made the step. I know what it takes and know the terrain, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, like the back of my hand.
“I have had absolutely no dance experience. None whatsoever. I’ve had a lot in my head and a lot in my bedroom alone, but until now, no one had ever taught me anything…Kellita is wonderful…dance with Kellita. She makes it easy…She’s so patient. Especially for someone who hasn’t danced before.”
“Thanks for not looking at me any differently than the size 2 next to me. It says a lot about the energy you exude and attract that none of the other girls did either.”
“I'm also noticing that after this experience... I feel more grounded and connected in general. No matter what happens, I have a re-invigorated deep part of my body that is home and that is immensely comforting.”
“The welcome mat that is laid out for you just eliminates any feelings of intimidation.”
“It’s like a dream come true. Don’t wait!”
“Dancing the Carnaval with the Hot Pink Feathers is the most fun a girl can have with (some) of her clothes still on.”
“I'm so grateful to be a part of The Showgirl Awakening experience. It came to me at the time when I was finally (after 36 years!) beginning to feel love for myself, especially my body. I had dreams I was convinced were impossible, and now they've started coming. Learning from you and dancing with you is a huge one! You are a fantastic teacher! So patient and loving, I have felt myself grow in self confidence and radiance. I finally feel able to work on releasing some very deep, painful childhood memories which I've let dominate my life. In your class, I've been able to tap into my inner strength to forgive myself and release so much pent up sadness. I danced and performed a lot as a child but stopped suddenly. It feels so amazing to my body and soul to be dancing and performing again! I'm grateful to you for the part you've played in me feeling at home with myself and in my body. For years I couldn't even look at myself in a mirror.”
