- Amani Jabril is in Lebanon, teaching and performing in the Amani Oriental Festival in Beirut. Though the festival is named for the Lebanese dancer Amani, we know our Amani will raq their socks off over there!
- This weekend, Beats Antique will be playing in Athens as part of the Wild Rumpus Halloween Bash at the Georgia Theater. In the workshop I took with Zoe a few weeks ago, she said she's really excited about this show because "It's a giant Halloween party!" There's also a Wild Rumpus street party and parade... obviously, lots of fun to be had in Athens this Saturday night!
- New classes are popping up all over, including several "Belly Dance Cardio" classes (do I sense a trend?). You can focus on fitness while working on your shimmies with Kumari on Sundays at 1:00 p.m. at Dance 101, with Oracle at LA Fitness and other locations (see the Jahara Phoenix site for details), and with Lacy Perry or Isis at Amoora Dance & Fitness.
