Happy Mother’s Day to all my belly dance friends!

It is a beautiful thing to be able to belly dance with friends and an absolute joy to dance with family. Hope your Mothers Day was wonderful.

Photo Challenge: Between

Why have my posts been a little infrequent of late?

Because I have been doing a bit of globe trotting and belly dance training.

Just to prove the point…

Here is a snap shot of me BETWEEN the great pyramids of Giza.

Egypt is such a great place, sigh….

On a more serious note here is a little snap shot from a Β bit earlier in the year. The quality of the image is not great (we were focussed on the quality of our performances instead). But what the image represents to me is poignant. The woman in the picture that is not in costume is the lovely Rachel. She was one of my most enthusiastic dancers for several years. Work issues came up and she took a break for a while, only to find out that cancer had decided to revisit her. Basically she found herself BETWEEN arock and a hard place. She wanted to try some other therapies and so her friends had a fund raiser for her. Women from my class that had danced with her, got together and entertained the guests. It was a beautiful day.

For Rachel to have been surrounded by all her friends in such a challenging moment of her life was wonderful.

Extraordinary photos, tribal belly dance costume inspiration

A super quick link share of some extraordinary photos of indigenous people. I decided to share not only because of the beauty but because the clothing and personal adornments are spectacular and sure to be appreciated by dancers and performers.

Here it is:-
