September so far is super!  Started teaching my awesome BCA students at our new location – Greenboro Community Centre, and it’s a lovely studio.

This past weekend, I took part in a belly dance workshop at Studio X, hosted by Jehane Khan of Dunyia Studio, and instructed by Aziza….wow!  Our theme was travel, transitions, and technique.  It was a lot of fun to learn new stuff, and we all worked very hard to achieve the technical and artistic  goals she set for us.  That evening, I got to watch Aziza dance at a local Turkish restaurant.  She’s an incredible teacher and performer; with high energy, charisma, and phenomenal skills.  It was a real honour to be in her class, and I’m hoping to sign up again the next time she comes to town.  Even though I was initially worried about keeping up, and that perhaps I wasn’t at a high enough skill level to fit in, it turned out to be a wonderful experience; I felt welcome and able to hold my own amongst all the other participants…even those half my age!  Lesson learned…it’s better to believe in yourself and take a chance on something new and scary, than to sit back and regret a missed opportunity.

So, this weekend, I’ll be dancing outdoors with Halyma’s Belly Dancing For Fun troupe, in support of the Ontario Cancer Foundation’s Epic Walk.  You can read the details on my Events page, and if you’d like to join us, we’d love to have you there…come on out and dance with us!!  Best shimmies…
