BellyTalk - October 2018

Hi Everyone,

Gosh how the year has flown bye. The lambing is done and classes are started again. The roadworks on North Avon Rd have finished so that is very good.

We are having a GRAND BAZAAR at Chrystal Palace on the 28th October 1-5pm  Further details are on our facebook page  We are hoping to get lots of stalls and lots of buyers and its a chance for the bellydance community and others to get together. Get some bits and pieces to enhance your costume, buy a new costume in time for End of Year activities.

It was good to go to the April Rose Workshops in July. Fun to network and catch up with other dancers. Also April Rose has an interesting teaching style so always good to pick up some tips from that.

The End of year Hafla will be on Sunday 9th December from 5pm  - that is not many weeks away!!

There will a MEDANZ festival  in Auckland next year.  It will not have a big international star but celebrate our NZ teachers. 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.

Events Coming Up
MEDANZ festival 2019 is in Auckland 13th - 15th April.
