Our first concert – a sneak peek at the sold out performance

The Bellingen and Dorrigo classes of Jade Belly Dance came together in December to put on a spectacular concert night. We were joined by the lovely ladies of Masana Belly dance from Grafton and we had a great time. It was a night for all ages. It was held in the small town of Dorrigo NSW at the super cute Dorrigo Drama Club Theatre. We were utterly stunned when the stage manager whispered to us that it was a full house – we hadn’t even had much time to advertise it!

Putting on a show is a lot of work and I have so much respect for those that do it regularly! I am putting up these photos for my students that have been away over the holidays and haven’t yet seen them. There is some excellent photography by Bruce Thomas and a few pics by Tammy Mills-Thom so I hope my regular readers don’t mind having a look too. Photos of the evening are available for $10 for disc (it includes many more photos than these in higher resolution) contact me on jadebellydance@hotmail.com if you are wanting some to keep.

If you are reading this before the 31st of January please take a few moments and vote for Jade Belly Dance in the favourite blog and Teacher category for the top dance blog awards. I put in a whole heap of effort to get comments on a previous post and it turns out I only needed 10 and the competition was a second round of voting! Doh! So if you haven’t already please, please, please vote for Jade Belly Dance in both categories by clicking this link.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

The picture for today is not awesome in its quality (wish it were a bit better focussed!) but what I find interesting is that the reflection does not quite look like the subject and furthermore the shadow appears to be different again! It’s like a portrait of me, myself and I and we are all just slightly out of sync. It is not photo-shopped except that I took the window out of the reflection – the rest is as it was taken.

Belly Dancer in Mirror

Me, Myself and I

I am fascinated by reflections and have posted several of my favourite pics on that topic in previous posts like



This is a straight up photo post not my usual more informative post style because…..

Jade Belly Dance is all gearing up for the end of year concert on December 8th in Dorrigo NSW. It is sure to be a blast!

Organising the event has been taking up most of my time so posting will be a little less until next week. I just couldn’t miss this weeks photo challenge however.

Anyone else have mirror oriented belly dance photos? I would love to see them.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Green

Had to participate in this word press photo challenge! Jade is a shade of green after all.

So may I present my belly dance snap shots in green (+ a couple of photos of me by the talented Leigh Jensen and Bruce Thomas).

Green is also a notoriously difficult colour to get in belly dance costumes and is really hard to accessorise.

Blue seems to be a lot more forgiving when it comes to mixing different shades but I love green so much I just keep trying to find a great green outfit. I am pretty happy with my mostly home-made olive green bellynesian outfit and my new green and black custom made outfit from Egypt that I have yet to wear (the bra getting altered below is part of that ensemble) but my favourite green costume in terms of versatility, comfort, shade of green and price is the beaded green costume that I am wearing in the fairy garden below.

I hadn’t intended on most of the pictures being of me  – but I don’t know many other people that wear green as much as I do!!

What’s your favourite coloured (colored) costume? Have you had trouble finding a look that is just right? Comment below.
