The third #bellydance #workshop I'll be teaching @hamiltonbellydance as part of the first annual Hamilton International Bellydance Competition is where my heart truly lives - in the music of Oum Kalthoum. To enjoy and study her music is an education in feeling, culture, and Egyptian art aesthetics. Also, it just feels so dang good!

Pure #Romance is a #bellydance #workshop full of sweet and juicy #dance #combinations. Since most Arabic songs are about #love it feels so good to fall into that feeling in this dance. Come along for the ride at the first annual #Hamilton International Bellydance Competition! @hamiltonbellydance

The one and only Rachid Halilhal was flown in to Portland to perform at wedding rehearsal dinner. As luck would have it, I was hired to dance and Rachid called David to play darbouka so it was a pretty sweet night. He is so joyful and effortless, what a treat! #arabicmusic #kismet

Too hot to care that the toilet is photo bombing this shot. Just had to get a post dance selfie in this lovely new-to-me Eman Zaki costume. How she manages to make something so gorgeous feel like yoga pants I will never know. #bellydance #costumes #postgig

Hit some balls at Top Golf today with my niece. Before I was a #bellydancer I was a #golfer. Here's to #pastlives and #musclememory! #fore

My favorite dancer at the Abu Simbel Sun Festival was this young woman from Sudan. She did the pigeon dance that we learned about in Journey Through Egypt and it was sooooooo beautiful. I caught just the tail end of it at the beginning of this clip. The neck, head, and shoulder movements in this dance were mesmerizing and it was such a breath of fresh air to watch. #egypt #sudan #nubia #dance #jte #journeythroughegypt
