Red Sun Rising Series
This Red Sun Rising Series is dedicated to blissful transformation!
In this Indian-Yoga-Bellydance Fusion Choreography, you will nurture your Chakras (energy centers in the body), uncoil your Shakti power of Kundalini Rising (awakening consciousness symbolized by a sleeping snake at the base of the spine), and give rise to your power of intuition!
The sensual moves and sharp combos of this dance pair beautifully with the Yoga poses - each of which are given unique "Sacred Sinuosity" Yoga-Bellydance Fusion treatments of layered Bellydance movements within asanas.
Dance can be magical if you give yourself the time, space, and self care ritual of practice to become inspired by it! I am so excited to share this enchanting feeling dance with you!

- Powerfully sharp accents!
- Fluidly sensuous Bellydance movements!
- Intricately mystical Indian Dance techniques!
- Sacredly Sinuous Yoga poses!
All of these elements culminate into a mesmerizing full length choreography that you can use for:

This video series is a compilation of excerpts from workshops held on Zoom. Below are testimonials from just a few of many happy students who attended the workshops and are now practicing with these videos:
"I recently had the opportunity to participate in a totally unique workshop experience with Ansuya. The workshop consisted of 4 sessions of 2 hours each in which Ansuya taught a choreography to" Red Sun" by Axel Thesleff from a new perspective of self-care and empowerment. The choreography combined senuous yoga moves, spiritual Indian movements awakening the chakras plus powerful belly dance moves. She also included interludes where we could connect deeply with the music and insert our own personal improv style. Learning and performing the combos in the choreography transported me to another level of consciousness. I was able to connect my mind, body and spirit in a new and exciting way. During the improv interludes, I fearlessly explored new ways to internalize the music and manifest it in my own personal moves. I gained so many take aways from the workshop that I can incorporate into my personal yoga, dance and meditation practices!"

"The Red Sun Workshop was a beautiful blend of dance and self discovery. I absolutely loved the mix of choreography with heartfelt improv. The movements had expression and meaning. The blend of Yoga and bellydance led us on a beautiful journey of kundalini rising and Goddess awakening. The Goddess Party at the end was a beautiful blend of dance and sisterhood. It was a joy to share this experience with these beautiful souls. Ansuya led this journey with love and care upon which we give so much gratitude."
- Bianca Namaste
“This workshop series has been an absolute joy for comfortably learning and creatively exploring a unique and inspiring fusion dance stylization. Ancient and mysterious in origin, the motifs and techniques of Indian dance are perfectly united with the sensuous flowing and empowering feminine movements of Bellydance! What could be better than to explore one’s inner goddess on this exciting journey of self discovery, than to further combine this experience with the supportive and emotionally enriching company of other like minded dancers! Full of laughter and warmth the after class tea parties offered a sense of connection that fueled even greater creativity and engagement! Filled with an energy of self care and mutual honoring, this seires concluded with a memorable evening of exciting performances unique to each dancing goddesses’ spirit. I truly felt transformed by the gift Ansuya has for teaching and the amazing energy that this circle of dancers brought together to hold this sacred space of mutual sharing and authentic artistic expression!”

"Ansuya focuses on creating a sisterhood, empowering women, and connecting with women from around the globe. The Red Sun series was all this and more. We met every Saturday for 2 hours online learning a new choreography at a relaxed pace and taking it in bite-sized chunks. She also gave us multiple segments of improvisations so that we could use those moments to interpret what the dance meant for us—to give ourselves time to shine. Then, we would relax with tea and treats and visit with one another. This was especially important to me, because I got a chance to make connections with some amazing women from across the world. The online Goddess Circle Show was the BEST! Ansuya makes this a private, intimate group for us to share a piece of ourselves by dancing a solo. Without the pressure of a public event and showmanship, this was ideal for new soloists or for dancers wanting to try out something new. The show was especially valuable to me, because I am pregnant and have been feeling a little self-conscious. Ansuya’s group was a very loving and supportive group, and I felt comfortable enough to dive right in! It was such a positive experience—I am registered for the next session! This is the type of environment I want to be in: positivity, empowerment, connection!

"Ansuys's Red Sun Rising Advanced Choreography Series was absolutely amazing and a lot of fun!! The choreography was sensual and relaxing at the same time. It included bellydance and yoga poses that really helped me relax and stretch.
I loved the Zoom tea parties at the end of every class! They helped us experience a sense of togetherness while getting to know each other, even though we're hundreds of miles apart! The hafla was a lot of fun. This was my very first performance in front of other people, but everyone was so encouraging and kind. I had such a great time! Looking forward to another one!"

"Ansuya's classes and workshops are THE BEST. Not only in terms of content, not only in terms of her skill at breaking down and explaining moves, not only in her attention to expressing emotion, musicality, and spirituality in dance, but even more in the way she creates a community with her students, even when we're only seeing each other on a computer screen. I've recconected with old friends and made new ones, and that's almost more important than dragging my butt off the sofa and learning new combos!"
"The Red Sun Workshop Series was so enlightening! I truly enjoyed this experience. I really enjoyed the blend of yoga poses and learning sacred Indian dance techniques. And the tea parties afterwards, were great for bonding during these trying times! Ansuya is a fabulous instructor, and I highly recommend this workshop series! -Sherri Morton
"I suck at writing. I'm like a caveman. Class good! Ansuya awesome! Me like!"
