BellyTalk - February 2019

Hi Everyone,

2019 is well here now and almost at the chinese 'year of the pig' (starting on 5th feb) which should be a good year for most.

The Christmas Hafla/party in December was great fun with lots of dancing from Desert Veils and all the special guests. Thanks to Zumarrad, Marion Belly Dance, Soul Star Tribe, Sonidos Flamenco, Flamenco del Sur for sharing their dance with us all and to Kashmir from belly raqs for support. We did enjoy the get together and hope we can do it again maybe before the end of the year.

There will a MEDANZ festival  in Auckland this year - ''Seven Seas of Bellydance'" ( It will not have a big international star but celebrate our NZ teachers. I am teaching along with other NZ teachers to showcase some of the talent we have on our own backdoor. The aim is to build up the monetary reserves so the following year MEDANZ can afford an international teacher. There are of course still the MEDANZ scholarships that are definitely worth having to help on your dance journey so watch out for those as applications have closed for the current round but be prepared when they come up towards the end of this year.

Classes will start on the 12th February.
I will run a special beginners course from Wenesday 27th February for 6 weeks for those who would like to have a go. It will be like a taster for bellydance and transferrable to most styles of bellydance. You can register beforehand or come along at 7.30pm and see if you like it. The cost is $75 for the full course.
