Merry Christmas Eve from Saint John, New Brunswick! I have living here for almost 4 months and I couldn’t be happier. This first quarter has absolutely been about taking it slow and settling in, and I’m so pleased that I had the time to revel in my new surroundings and work on my art with peace and privacy but also I have met and performed with other talented and hardworking belly dancers in Saint John and Moncton. I’m so truly grateful for it all.
Here’s a video of me performing at Maritime Tribal’s Holiday Hafla to Nomadica’s Tehtil Shibbak. Choreography and finger cymbal composition by me. I had so much fun working on this piece for 4 weeks straight!
So what’s up for the New Year? Well, I’m not entirely sure. I know I do want to get some classes running! Any teaching I do has to be 100% enjoyable and because I truly want to share the gift of belly dance. It really is life changing! I guess what I’m saying is that I’m in no hurry and when it happens it will be because it feels absolutely right!
That being said, if you’re reading this and want to learn Egyptian Belly Dance in or around Saint john, send me a message. I would be happy to give lessons to small groups or for birthdays, bachelorette parties or wedding/baby showers. Any time women gather to celebrate is the perfect time to learn belly dance.
Until then I will continue to work on my dance and take more classes and workshops when I can. Seriously considering doing Shimmy Mob with Barbara Aubie in Moncton!
Okay folks, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable holiday season! ❤
