Gigi Dilsah at Studio Artemis

September 25 - 27, 2020

Studio Artemis is thrilled to welcome back Turkish star of Istabul Gigi Dilsah for two weekend workshops at Studio Artemis. 

Each weekend will have different content, so join us for either one or both!



Our well known and well loved dancer from Turkey, Gigi Dilsah will be back for a weekend of workshops in my home studio September 25 - 27, 2020. If you want to come, please let Artemis know ASAP as this workshop will sell out. Music will be available. 


The whole weekend is $300. We will open up the event to part time participants if we do not sell out. Private lessons will be available by appointment only for $80 per hour (in cash paid to her when you are here, please). If you are interested in privates, please let me know so I can set up the schedule. Gigi will bring some beautiful things to sell, as always. I will have my tee shirts and tank tops for sale too.

Contact Artemis for information about how to make payments and to register.



This weekend will sell out and I will have a wait list but there is no guarantee that I can add a wait list person to take your place at the last minute if any of you cancel. Please do not assume it is OK to gift your registration to another person. That may be OK for big conventions, but this is our home. I can do my best to find a replacement for you, but if I cannot do that, I have to keep your money. I bought Gigi's ticket from Turkey so there can be no refunds unless WE cancel. If we have to cancel because Gigi can't get here and she cannot be refunded her flight money, we would prefer to apply your money towards her future workshops here. Or we can refund your money to you immediately. I can rip up your check or refund your PayPal. It is very unlikely that we would cancel as she is a US citizen.



Thank you all;
