Strawberry Butterfly

The Oasis Dance Studio is home to the fabulous ATS Duet ~ Strawberry Butterfly. Strawberry Butterfly is a new So. Cal dance company directed by Politti Ashcraft and assisted by Hasseenah. We are a small group of renegade performance artists, who, while pure in our ATS Bellydance roots, are not afraid to think outside the proverbial box and create chaos whenever and wherever it is needed...

Politti Ashcraft is the main instructor and owner of The Oasis Dance Studio, and is THE creative force behind bellydance art, education & excellence in the Inland Empire. Politti has been bellydancing for over 17 years, and has studied Pilates for the past 5 years. Combining her experience from both of these movement arts, she has extensive knowledge of how the body works, and applies that knowledge to her bellydance technique.

When working with a group, Politti specializes in ATS (American Tribal Style) Bellydance. She is a Certified ATS Teacher, trained by Carolena Nericcio, founder and director of FatChanceBellyDance. Her dance partner is Hasseenah, who, when together, form Strawberry Butterfly.

When working solo, Politti is a one-of-a-kind bellydance fusion artist, using her many years of performance experience to create original movement pieces to delight her audiences. Specializing in oooey-goooey slow bellydance movements, her ever evolving dance form can be enjoyed in her "Swimming Through Honey" workshops and her many solo performances in and around So. Cal.
