Student Hafla Photos

It’s been about a month since the Student Hafla and Launch Party for Carolina Belly Dance, so I am a little late in getting these pictures up. Better late than never, you know! Without further ado, here are the pictures taken by my student, Elizabeth, and our professional photographer of the evening, Bonnie Stanley of The Intimate Lens Photography. You can also find more pictures on Facebook here and here. Note: Watermarked images are copyrighted and property of...

New Year’s performance with Seher

I can’t believe it has been almost two months since the World in Motion New Year’s Gala show!

Drum roll please…

Whew, what a weekend it has been! I just finished hosting my first beading workshop and my second hafla (belly dance recital). It was all an awesome experience! And the best news is that the hafla raised $239 for the Triangle Belly Dance Scholarship Fund. Woo hoo!  The Scholarship provides funds for those belly dancers facing economic hardship.  To find out more about the fund, click here. So I kicked off the day hosting a 2-hour beading workshop, “Beading for Belly...
