“Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.” – Aberjhani
Thanks to all who came out to dance and support dancers this past Saturday at the Anti-Valentine Hafla, hosted by the wonderful Angie Mitchell. This Hafla (belly dance party) was anything but “Anti-“, filled with captivating, original performances by students and professionals alike, and a fantastic, responsive audience sharing our love of the dance. I was thrilled to finally perform my “Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Firiend” piece before so many friendly faces, and it was a big hit. (If you haven’t gotten a chance yet, you can find my special “Making of…” article here.
Looking for something fun to do for Valentine’s Day tomorrow night? I will be performing at Tamarind Savoring India, 2101 Greentree Road, 15220 Saturday Feb 14 6:30-9:30 p.m. Enjoy live middle eastern music by Rich Ermlick and Harvey, and bellydance by Husna, Amythest and myself while sampling delicious Indian food. No reservations needed! Bring a date, a friend, or your family.
Cold weather have you down? Research has shown that regular exercise and spending time with friends can help ease those winter blues. Do both by grabbing a friend and joining me on Tuesdays at 4:45 for belly dance fitness at CMU’s University Center. If toning muscle is more your goal, my Fox Chapel body sculpt classes are starting again soon, as well. Register at www.fcaae.org, or visitwww.southwestpabellydance.com/classes for more info.
Notice something NEW this month? I spent some time getting to know your names a little better, editing your profile in my list so that I could address you a little more personally. If I spelled your first name wrong, your greeting still says, “friend” or you have a different preference, you can edit your Subscriber Preferences by clicking the Mail Chimp link below.
Hope to see you dancing soon!
