New Session Starts Tomorrow!

Don’t forget, class starts tomorrow! We’ll be concentrating on veils this session. If you don’t have a veil I will have spares in class. If you want to get one of your own I recommend a very light polyester organza that floats gracefully down when you flip it in the air, or if you want to go hog wild you can get a silk veil, preferably 5mm but 8mm is also good, just heavier. My favorite spots to get these are on Etsy.com from ClevelandUrbanGirl or SilkDancer, or at Turquoiseintl.com. I have no affiliation with any of these vendors at all, I’m not getting any kickbacks, I promise! We’ll be working with rectangular veils and not half-circles.

It is very easy to make your own. If you go to the fabric store and buy your own material you really just need 3 yards of fabric. Stitch or fray-check the cut ends and you are in business! I prefer 45″ width so I don’t step on the material. I’m short. Contact me if you have any questions about that.

The music we will be using is “Rumba For Veil Work” from Eddie Kochak’s Strictly Belly Dance Vol. 3. This should be downloadable on Amazon.com or iTunes. It is 2:23 long.

If you are looking for a new challenge there are lots of workshops coming up in the region: make sure to check out ongoing workshops and classes from Gaia Sophia; The Lovely Dozen is sponsoring a wonderful workshop in May to coincide with World Belly Dance Day; The Jawaahir school in Minneapolis has a week-long intensive coming up in March that should be fabulous!
