Crisp mornings, fall colors and comforting autumn scents are in the air! And while it’s not officially fall, this time of year always seems like the perfect time to start something new or get back into regular activities.
Speaking of new …. From new classes to my brand-new CD to the new upcoming show, there’s a ton happening! You can also check out the new website and let me know what you think!
Classes start on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 1:00-2:00 pm at Center Stage / Kidz Kabaret, 1665 Quincy Ave, Naperville IL 60540. By popular demand, I’m offering a brand-new class on Thursday evenings from 7:30-8:30 pm, starting Sept. 14. Beginners will learn a veil dance and intermediates will learn a stick and wing dance just in time to for our December holiday party.
I released Mirage, my first CD album (BRAND NEW!) and it’s now available on Amazon, iTunes, CD Baby and other first-class outlets. I collaborated with world renown Yassir Jamal to create the album. He recently played for the King of Morroco and is one of today’s most popular composers of music for Oriental dancers. Mirage has ten tracks of original compositions, including two exciting drum solos and two tracks designed for drill training.
My professional team, Raksanna and the Desert Flames, is working on an amazing show. The Fourth Pyramid: A Tribute to Om Kalthoum is scheduled for May 2018. The sixth in the Confessions of a Belly Dancer™ series, this fully interactive theatrical presentation features original research, interviews with dancers from around the world, footage of the life and inspiration of Om Kalthoum and more.
I am excited to be back in full swing this fall and look very forward to dancing with you. You can find more information about the program, class times and tuition, and more here.
To quote a friend of mine … Enjoy the moment, celebrate your health and live in anticipate of a wonderful tomorrow!
All my best,
