As we face uncertainty and turmoil in our daily lives, join Lisa for a celebration of life and dance.  Baskets are vessels for community, bringing us together around shared meals, shared resources and even shared movement.  We invite you to join together virtually with your dance community to lift up those who are struggling and find solace in the joy of dancing with friends.


Baskets for Relief is a worldwide virtual tour to raise money for dancers, dance studios and charities in the host countries. 

Lisa is donating all of her time for this project and 100% of the money raised from this workshop will go to Sister to Sister. 


Lisa has been dancing, teaching and performing FCBD® with baskets for almost a decade.  As the co-director of Dayanisma, she helped create the troupe’s signature slow and fast basket dialect. 

Lisa continues to partner with Dawn Ruckert as Dayanimsa.  She also teaches as Lisa Allred Dance and performs with her new troupe, the Red Sage Collective.  Lisa is a co-owner of the Belly Dance Business Academy and a co-producer of Reunion.  In addition to teaching dance, she offers a variety of workshops that combine psychology and dance on topics such as stage presence, motivation, creativity within structure, conflict management, managing troupes and more!  Lisa is eternally thankful to her teacher and friend, Dawn Ruckert.  For information on Lisa and Dawn’s online basket class that contains the ENTIRE fast basket dialect, visit Lisa’s website.  Finally, Lisa is very grateful to Afrit Temple for permission to use their music to teach on this tour.  Please check out their music on Itunes.
