My Trip to Egypt

I can’t believe it has been two months since I went to Egypt . I was lucky enough to be able to go on a family vacation with my husband and his parents and of course I fit in as much belly dancing as I could! I went a few days ahead of the rest and stayed at Yasmina of Cairo’s Belly Dancers B&B. It was a lovely experience, something I highly recommend. If you want to go to Egypt, but don’t want to be alone, check out Yasmina. The rates are affordable,...

Photos from Beer Durham

Right after I came back from Egypt, local dancer, Sonya, asked me to perform at Beer Durham, a new craft beer store in Downtown Durham on February 5. I was one of three dancers that night–Sonya and Cristina being the other two dancers. There was a great crowd despite the cold! It’s a great new venue for dancers who want to perform in an intimate environment and I am excited that it has become a monthly thing! Check out this listing to find out when the next...

Jewelry liquidation sale

OK, so I know this isn’t belly dance, but it is tangentially related. When I started blogging, I included information and updates about all of my hobbies–one of which is making jewelry. However, since I started making costumes, that has pretty much eaten up my jewelry time. I decided to call it quits in the jewelry making department, except for jewelry for my costumes! LOL. 😉 Current pieces will go first and then the supplies. For now, I am offering 50% off of...

Choosing your first pair of finger cymbals (zills)

Choosing your first pair of finger cymbals (zills)

My continuing belly dance students are currently learning a fun choreography with finger cymbals. For many of the students in the class, this is the first time that they have ever tried finger cymbals. Finger cymbals are really hard to play because they are musical instruments that you wear and play–all while belly dancing! I started putting together materials for the class and I thought a quick video would be helpful. Then I decided it may be helpful to lots of other...
