Upcoming Events for 2011

Can you believe it, it's almost November and the holiday season is upon us along with the end of 2011!!!

I thought I would list the events coming up for November and December of this year. 

My Mesa Arts Center classes started last week and our class recital will be on Wednesday Dec. 14th from 7 - 8:30ish in the Acting Studio in the Arts Studio Building.

The class will also be performing in the Chandler Parade of Lights on Saturday Dec. 3rd.  The parade route is through Historic downtown Chandler and starts at 7:00 p.m.  Here's more info on the parade,

I will be having my first Saturday of the month workshops on November 5th and December 3rd.  November workshops will be combinations, 7 veils and drum & zills.  The workshops for December are combinations, double sword (or single) and drum & zill.  I have the entire schedule for 2012 up on my website,

To start the New Year off right I will be having my annual swap meet; number 17!!!  For more info on my annual swap meet check out all the details on my website,

Hope you too you at one of the upcoming events...

Weekly Belly Dance Lessons on YouTube

I finally did it!  I'm offering weekly belly dance lessons on YouTube!!!  I just posted lesson 2 on fan veils. 

Last week I started with a lesson on veils.  It was pretty bad but I know I will improve each week which I did this week.  You would think after having a belly dance TV show for 13 years I would be use to this but it has been awhile :-)

These lessons are short, each week having a different topic.   So far they are just over 7 minutes; I'm sure they will get longer in time.

Here are links to the first two classes:
Lesson 1 - veil
Lesson 2 - fan veils

My YouTube Channel is ShimmyBliss if you'd like to check out my 90 some videos I have posted of performances, class choreographies and now my weekly lessons. 

Enjoy my belly dance lessons, more to come...
