Practice the Art of Pleasurable Surrender


About 5 years ago, while in the midst of a huge personal transformation (a.k.a. divorce), Sister Goddess Sally Blenkey offered me ballroom dance lessons with her husband, Alex Tchassov, as a Christmas gift. Saved Mama’s skinny little ass, she did, by giving my feeties a vehicle to soar, to sing, to celebrate, to learn to dance.?

Dancing is not an intellectual activity. You cannot know of the butterfly within unless you take her out for a spin and let her flap.? And you gotta know that I knew as much about a business plan as I did about tango — exactly nothing. This does not matter when your goal is to soar. Everyone has a butterfly within. Giving her space to fly gives wings to your dreams.?

I feel like a queen in Alex’s arms, and I promise you — you will too! The Evening of Dance Seduction is more than a lesson in dancing — it is a lesson in partnership, trust, and owning your beauty. So, grab your dancing shoes and allow yourself to be seduced by the beautiful art form of ballroom dancing.

With so much pleasure,

Mama Gena

6:30pm until 9:30pm

A legendary evening is just around the corner. Do you want in? Alex Tchassov has a very special experience planned for you. Designed to make your heart race, your senses sharpen, and allow you the practical experience of actually dancing with at least five different trained guys — all of whom want you to practice the art of relaxing, receiving, and responding.

The evening begins with a special warm-up designed to elevate your own sense of your divine feminine. Alex will then introduce you to his principles for delicious and pleasurable surrender. We will then invite our wonderful dance partners into the room — then the party begins. It does not matter if you have never danced a day in your life — Alex will teach you everything you need to know in order to enjoy the rich and sensuous experience of being danced around the floor. All of these lessons are designed to crack you open, to give you a divine taste of what this really good surrender can feel like — with the intention of you using this experience to invite more into your life!

We are super lucky that our evening will culminate with a show starring three-time U.S. and World champions Jose Decamps and Joanna Zacharewicz – who will enchant us with their exquisite, sexy, dramatic, and gorgeous dancing! The price for this evening is $150 – however, if you pay before the end of May, the discounted rate is $125. Call (347) 248-2533 to either pay by credit card or make arrangement to send a check.

Want to bring even more positive energy into your life? Consider joining Alex and Sally’s dance troupe “The Pocohos.” Some of our members are experienced dancers, and many never danced a day in their life before they met us. We rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7pm until 8:30pm in Chelsea Studios in NYC. We will resume rehearsals in late August 2010 for a performance in the Pocono Mountains on October 17th-19th, 2010. Many troupe members have said this is the most fun they have ever had in their adult life. The larger goal of our dance group is to participate in glamorous choreography, even if you think it is too much for you. We want you to really think of the image you would like to project and use the rehearsal period to become the person of YOUR fantasy — and through this, get a newfound sense of your own beauty and confidence. Anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Our next dance performance has a Madonna theme. For more info, go to or give Sally a call at (347) 248-2533.

    Dance is wonderful….this night will be awesome! I can’t join because I will be taking Argentine Tango lessons myself that evening. I started taking dance lessons 2 years ago. Salsa…and it was the best thing that I have done for myself. It opened me up, helped me lose 30 pounds and met so many nice people. Tango is definitely surrender and that is a spiritual lesson for me as well. I don’t surrender easily and still struggle with that in dance…but it has improved. Reading this post was enjoyable and the concept of surrender a good one. but dance can be good for what ails you and it gets you in touch with the sexy self that you may have forgotten….it did for me!!

    My husband and I met through dance and have been dancing together ever since (nearly 10 yrs). We specialise in Argentine Tango (just about the sexiest dance to ever do with a man!) and also love the sexy Latino styles. We also do Ballroom and other types of dancing. It keeps you fit, you get to dress up at events, you meet new friends and you feel FANTASTIC!

    Way to go Mama Gena! xx
