Our First ever end of year concert!!!! YAY!

Bra making workshop and video afternoon

When: 15th July

Where:  Repton (my house and mini studio) ring 66554896 or email jadebellydance@hotmail.com for directions

Time: 1-5pm

This afternoon is a free social event – normally I would run these separately but I know some of you have a long way to travel so I am combining them to make it easier. It is not really an event for younger children as they would get pretty bored so take some time out for yourself and come and relax with the ladies.  We will watch some highlights from  great dvd’s from my extremely extensive collection (some would say I have a bit of an obsession!)Jade Belly Dance beach bellydancers near Coffs Harbour

Also I have been told Haven is coming. This is the belly dance market stand that is closing down. That would mean massive bargains for you as everything is half price and Heidi just wants to clear things out.  Spare skirt for $10 – bargain!!!!!

I will have all sorts of bits and bobs for your costumes (if you already have a bra please bring along another sewing project and I will give you a hand). Click here for a previous post I made for the last workshop – it tells you what you need to bring and gives you an idea of the things I will probably have available on the day for purchase. If you want to get an idea of what we are doing and want inspiration and advice then check out one of my most popular posts of all time on the topic of tribal bras. Please bring a plate of food to share

An event for belly dancers and non belly dancers alike (women only though!!).

Skilled sewers that want to join in a share their wisdom or just work on a project with a lovely group of ladies are welcome to join us. If you have tribal do-dads you want to sell or bits and pieces you want to give away to a good home (ie broken jewelery, single earrings, tassels, bits of trim or pretty fabric scraps) bring those along too, its an awesome way to recycle! We can all help each other create unique masterpieces !!

 Zill workshop

When: 22nd July

Where:  Repton (my house and mini studio) ring 66554896 or email jadebellydance@hotmail.comfor directions

Time: 10am-11am kids ($12.50 + zill price)

adults 1-3:30pm ($25 + zill price)

(space is limited so book now to secure your place)

Why: Zills -That’s Turkish for finger cymbals. This is a great skill to learn but takes up so much dancing time in class that I wanted to introduce it in a workshop first. It does take a little practice at home to be able to keep the beat and dance at the same time but it is worth the effort.

For the first time EVER! I will be offering a kids dance workshop too.

The best place to buy zills that I know of is from master bell maker Saroyan. The only trouble is that he adds a lot for postage to overseas destinations like Australia (like $55US!! and their customer service sux, but their product is excellent, so I persist both price wise and difficulty wise it is best to order as a group). The website has sound files of all zills available. I recommend mini zills for smaller children and Arabesque for new dancers. You may want to spend more and pick out your own favourites so please peruse the site and ring or email me straight away if you would like to order something more to your taste. http://dwp.bigplanet.com/saroyan/onlinestore/    please ring me if you need advice 66554896

All zill orders need to be made this week so have a look and decide if you want some – you need to have zills to participate in the workshop.

You can secure your place and pay right now via online banking that way you can just turn up and dance! I am with Westpac  – Jacquelyn forest BSB: 032576 Account no.:249104 label payment with your name so I know who it is from and send a quick email to make sure I put you on the list !

“This kind of dance is like a self massage. As you dance you start to dance away the blockages, move through and
release emotions that were stuck and feel again the river of subtle and beautiful energies that we are part of.” Tamsin 2010
