Jim Boz discovered belly dance in 1994 on a
whim and tongue in cheek attempt at regular
exercise. Jim's classes and workshops are
highly sought out for the clear breakdowns
and progression of concepts in his course plan.
"One of the most energetic, fun teachers in town!" -
Jana Dieter, Student
Bringing years of classical and jazz music
training, composition and performance, Jim
Boz approaches dance with a musical
sensibility that allows him to express in
concise and clear ideas of movement, grace
fun; a pleasure to
watch and to
dance with!" -
His solo performances include a variety of
tempos, textures and rhythms, bridging the
emotional spectrum of the dance style. He
often uses sword work (single or double) or
other balancing techniques for solo
performances, to complement his strong
presence. He has also studied Moroccan tray
dance and is also adept at a variety of veil and
cape dance techniques, in addition to many
folkloric men's and women's stylings.
