Andalee's Belly Dance Newsletter
December 2009 Newsletter
I'm back and excited about the upcoming holidays. I'm also looking forward to 2010, which should be filled with fun and dance! I proclaimed 2009 my year of the props and I was successful in dancing with finger cymbals, an assaya (cane) and a veil throughout my 2009 performances. I hope to continue my prop work in 2010, because a dancer's work is never done. However, I proclaim 2010 to be the year of the troupe! In the fall of this year I started a student troupe for my advanced and intermediate students. It has been more fulfilling than I ever thought it could be. The troupe is called the Nightingales and I hope they will have many opportunities to perform throughout 2010.
The Nightingales will be saying goodbye to 2009 with a bang as we perform together for the very first time. Please come out to support us!
December 5, 2009: Evening Oasis: Holiday Hafla. Triangle Dance Studio, 2603 S. Miami Blvd, Durham (near RTP), NC 27703, upstairs studio. 7:00-9:30pm, $5.
New Winter Class Schedule
Start your new year off right with some belly dance classes that will ward off the winter blues and help you loose those extra holiday pounds. Learn traditional Middle Eastern dance movements that have been passed down for generations in this entry-level class. Beginning belly dance is about learning how to connect with your body and spirit. Suitable for all shapes, sizes and activity levels, but you will get a work out! This class will focus on improving flexibility, conditioning the body in order to do the movements properly, and building stamina. You will learn basic belly dance techniques that focus on the core aspects of the dance.
Beginning Belly Dance
Thursdays, 6:30 - 7:30p
Sundays, 3:30 - 4:30p

Student Troupe: The Nightingales
Wednesdays, 7:00 - 8:00p
There is still space available in my student belly dance troupe, called the Nightingales. We will be learning a fun Egyptian choreography. The student troupe only requires that you have completed one session of beginner belly dance with me. I am hoping that there may be community performance opportunities. There are no auditions. Please send me an e-mail if you are interested.
