THE WINTER FIESTA
IS OFFICIALLY CAST!
A Message of Gratitude
On this Thanksgiving week, I can't help but think of gratitude for my belly dance students. We play together, we sweat together, we make together. There's really nothing like the feeling of creative collaboration, and seeing it all come to fruition in a finished piece, able to share with the world. That pride is unique. And so today I want to recognize all of my former & current students. I am so grateful to you. There is of course no way I could create these dances without you, and I can't wait to bring our work to the Fiesta. So a big shout out: THANK YOU!
