I am very late in mentioning a big event going on this weekend -- "Najm al Danse Orientale," presented by Black Orchid Dance. It's a whole weekend of workshops, shows, contests, parties, shopping for sparkly or fringy stuff... all the things belly dancers love, right? And it really is packed with stars, including Tito Seif, Sharon Kihara, Tarik Sultan, Willow Chang, and more. I have missed this event in the past due to scheduling conflicts, but this year I will at least be attending the Sunday night show! I'm looking forward to the performances by all these awesome guests, as well as lots of local talent. Nothing like just settling in for a heapin' helpin' of belly dance, is there? And I am particularly looking forward to finally seeing this Tito dude everyone's always raving about!
Anyway, I expect to see lots of friends from all corners of the community Sunday night -- that's the other part of belly dance that we all love, right? The best part, I'd argue. Hope to see you there!
