Metamorphosis Shows are a Collaboration of Laylia's Students including independent local dancers specializing in indoor and stage venues . They come together to present different personalities and skills of the dance ranging in skill level from beginner to professional.
In one 5 minute show they do a delicate weaving of Group Choreographies, Choreographed Solos and improvisational dance! Hilarious and challenging, the shows are not to be missed!
Artistic Director: Laylia
Salome Spring Show Oct 8th 2006
Saffron, Sofia Saharr, Dharma and Laylia came together to present Patchwork Sands. Each wearing a different style of costume and 2 soloing to tribal, then 2 soloing to Indiahop. In less than a week the girls had their solos together and aced their transitions from one dancer to the next. Dharma modified a solo she had learned, Sofia tried a new style of cab dancing, and Saffron switched up too.... "It is such a pleasure working with these talented dancers! You explain why you want something and they jump right up to the challange.." ~Laylia

Wiporwil's Extravaganza May 27th 2006
Dancers from Laylia's School made the loooong drive to upper Alabama for performance and study! Laylia enjoyed teaching along side Mesmera and Aziza Newal for 3 entense days of seminars and shows! "Lots of dancers came down from Tenn and we even saw Stella from Ohio who is a long time friend and fan of Mesmera!" The shows turned out great! And again, in just a few rehearsals the girls did a bang-em up job! The ladies totally had fun with Mesmera while taking her to the Tenn Airport! Dancers: Inari, Deedrah, Kittia, Laylia All did solo improve and choreography!
