Belly Dance Magazine sponsored an amateur dance contest the Mendocino Music and Dance Camp this year. My Teacher Shoshanna is very persuasive and convinced me to enter, even though I had never performed solo in my whole life. All went well, I dance to a song I had never heard before, and it was improvisation because of that. Needless to say I didn't actually win anything... However, my picture and name are featured in the current issue of Belly Dance Magazine! It may seem silly, but I never e... read moreSun, December 14, 2008 - 11:11 PM permalink - 1 comment
Well, I went to camp for an entire week. It was painful, and hard, and tiring but it was the most incredible experience of my life! I met so many incredibly talented people, and nice people, and even some famous people.Fri, August 29, 2008 - 8:49 AM permalink - 1 comment
Karim, Souhail, and Georges Lammam were the most down to earth people. They imparted important information that will stay with me for my entire life. I feel that I now have the tools to dance to anything. And I finally can play finger cymbals. I've got skills that I've alway... read more
I haven't been posting, or visiting here at all. I sort of feel left out because I got laid off in June, so I haven't been dancing, and I feel like an outsider on here because of that. Also, a large number of my troupe mates tried out for our directors professional troupe and are now gone, so she disbanded our amateur troupe. While I don't have the time or money to pay for classes and troupe costs at this moment, i still really miss it.Sun, July 20, 2008 - 12:05 PM permalink - 1 comment

Even though, on Monday, Shoshanna mentioned how great Raks Amar would be for me, and said she need a few less flaky girls, I keep thinking it won't happen. I keep thinking that while she's in Minnesota she'll get so into what's happening that when she comes back she will forget she ever said anything to me. Then the whole troupe thing just won't happen for me. Or even worse, she'll decide I just am not up to par with the some of the other dancers and will pick someone else to join. I really a... read moreSun, October 14, 2007 - 7:31 PM permalink - 1 comment
