You've probably already noticed that November is going to be a very busy month in the metro Atlanta belly dance community!  Here's a preview of the workshops and shows coming up next month.

November 3-4
Princess Farhana (Lapis Photography)
Princess Farhana's Glamour Garage
Mina and Mariana present a legend of belly dance, burlesque, and much more -- Princess Farhana!
Two days of workshops in dance as well as makeup and how to pose for a camera at Sound Body Gym (3334 North Druid Hills Road, Decatur, GA 30033).  I believe the workshops are sold out, but don't miss the Fab Glam Showcase Saturday night at Kavarna!  Your chance to see the amazing Princess Farhana and many other belly dance and burlesque performers in an intimate venue.  RSVPP to the Facebook event for more details.

Saturday, November 10
Les Raissat Presents Legends of Dance Morocco & Shira
Atlanta's newest performing duo brings two of the leading authorities on our art form to Pera Dance & Events!  How many times in your early dance career did you refer to to learn more about belly dance?  And "Aunt Rocky" has been performing and studying the dance since the 1970s.  She recently published "You Asked Aunt Rocky:  Answers & Advice about Raqs Sharqi and Raqs Shaabi (Oriental & Folk Dance)."  She will discuss her book, and Shira will present "Hares in the Harem & Fantasies of Seduction," a lecture she has been researching for many years, including lots of photos and videos.  The lectures begin at noon, with a show featuring Shira at 7:00 and an after-party at Nicola's.  RSVP to the Facebook event for more information!  Click here for tickets, including a great deal on a package including a signed copy of Morocco's book!

Nazeem Allayl at Red Light Cafe
Saturday night, Atlanta Belly Dance/Nazeem Allayl Studios presents a cabaret showcase at the Red Light Cafe in Midtown.  Check out the instructors and troupe members from this popular studio with a variety of performances from instructors, troupe members, and students!  Click here for tickets.

Awalim Student & Apprentice Showcase at Nicola's
Shameless plug for my own student troupe and teachers with a fabulous show at Nicola's!  This event combines students and Awalim apprentices from Ziah's and Aziza Nawal's classes for a wide variety of performances.  Cabaret, tribal fusion, group improv, folkloric, Bollywood, and more!  Tickets include dinner, as always, and dancing with Nicola.  Click here for advance tickets.  Check out the Facebook event for the latest details!

This show will also be a fundraiser for Our House, a childcare, education, and support center for homeless families in Decatur. They need clothing and household items for children and adults.
