Every week I have a great idea for a blog post and then fall short on time to write it. Exciting things are happening and I am so honored to be a part of events that honor our dance from workshops to galas and cultural events. Here is a highlight reel:
The amazing workshops and Gala show for Assala Ibrahim. Tremendous thanks to Uza and her team for bring Assala here because I am now completely hooked on this style. What good is being a dancer when we lose the value of learning?
I also have the honor to bring my mentor Andrea back to CT for a workshop on Persian styling.
Lastly, I am preparing for two community events. One in CT – a Gala for Nourhan Sharif that features performances from the professional dancers in CT (sponsored by Kelvia) -tickets available here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/556650
and Nahara’s Springtime Hafla which will feature professional and student dancers from Westchester and CT. Tickets available here: http://www.josiedance.com/josiedance/Spring_Shimmie.html
It’s also a great time with rehearsals diving into projects for the Theatrical Bellydance Conference.
Regular blog posts to resume shortly. I promise!
