Hi everyone!  Sorry, it’s been far too long since my last post; the Winter session was busy, but that’s no excuse for being too lazy to write.  For the cold season, I had the great pleasure of teaching a bunch of beginner beauties (photo below) at Rideau High School on Monday nights.  These young women were so enthusiastic and energetic, (whew!) they will forever be known as the ‘Nashita’ troupe.  I was really impressed by their progress in such a relatively short time, and got to enjoy challenging them with layered movements, and the use of props, like sticks, veils, and zills.  On another night, I was fortunate to teach a technique class, for several former students.  This was a new type of class, which certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone to try something different, and it was great!  I have my own teachers and mentors to thank, for their inspiration and encouragement.   And of course, Fridays are happy dance days, with the Fit and Fab divas from Breast Cancer Action Ottawa.   It was a wonderful Winter session, and I feel very blessed to be surrounded by positive energy, laughter, and a sense of purpose.

So, now’s the time for a new session.  Registration info is posted on the ‘classes’ page for Spring, and please check the ‘events’ page, for upcoming fun stuff, like the Ottawa Souk (formerly the Ottawa Dancer’s Bazaar), Shimmy Mob, and Shimmy Into Summer Show.  Hopefully, this chilly weather will soon mellow into soft spring breezes and warm sunshine…so treat yourself to a pedicure, dig out those sandals, and sign up for dance class…it’ll put a little ((Spring)) in your step!


Wow!  These ladies are wearin’ me out!!
