It's been a long time since my last post and so many events have taken place.
My dance classes at the Mesa Art Center (MAC) on January 19th and I'm now teaching 3 nights a week Tues., Wed. and now Thursday evening with a new beginning tribal class.
On January 23rd I held my 15th Annual Belly Dance Swap meet and even this week and one of the worst storms in AZ it didn't dampen our spirits. Attendance was really down due to the unusual weather since dancers from out of the Valley of the Sun couldn't make it due to so many road closures. We will do it again on January 15, 2011!!!

On February 6th I danced at TC's Belly Dance Gathering at Plaza de Anaya as a solist and with some of my students. It was a fun show with lots and lots of dancing and chatting with friends.

I vended with Kyla and Gail at the Estrella War Games in Florence, AZ Feb. 9th - 14th. This was my first time vending at War and doing henna for a day. I saw so many people I hadn't seen in so long; next year I'm not driving back to town we'll stay and camp.

Last Saturday I taught a veil workshop in Safford, AZ and what a blast!!!! The women in Safford made me feel so welcome, like one of the group. A huge Thank You to Rajani for inviting me to teach; now Rajani know how to throw a party! My hubby and dog Ratso came along for the ride and although I can't speak for Ratso my hubby had a great time!!
I am going to do my best to make sure I bring my camera with to all events in the future. There are several events in March and OMG April is filled with workshops and shows every weekend along with a road trip to Cottonwood. I can't wait to see everyone in Northern AZ.
Till next time...enjoy
