ok, so after I recovered from me NO BDSS TICKETS! ordeal, I must tell you about The Fabulous Aida Nour! She was here in TO lthis past weekend and she was amazing! The whole show was amaizing! It was put on by Arabesque Dance Company and Yasmina did a great job at getting that line up. I was especially moved by the Trisha Dancers from the states. It was a big beautiful group of about 20 woman of all ages, and one of them looked like she could have been my grand monther! But she was so wonderful! They were all in time, the all looked like they were having so much fun, you could feel the bond they had on stage. The Arabeque Dancers were wonderful as ever... I really enjoyed the ojpening piece where the had different birght coloured outfits and I loved the Kaleighi piece. And yes the cream de la cream was Aida Nour. She's so beuatiful and elegant and oozing with personality and *sigh* she just looks so comfotable and it looks easy on her, like it her natural way of walking down the street. Oh she was so nice. :)

So, The Resteraunt in Hamilton is still under Renovations, however I've been hearing 2-3 weeks we'll be up!

I did a show last week at the flow fitness Rak 'N' Roll. It was an amazing night! The dancers were fantastic and the audience was really involved. I did an improvisation to a song by El Clon, and it was well recieved! If you want to see Photos go to http://www.flickr.com/photos/cenedra/ or www.flowfitness.ca for more photos and a little right up!

This show was themed "Classical Egyptian". It opened up with the fantastic troup Zephyr who introduced a new choreo. I've always loved these girls, they are well together. Next out was Christina D. Wow! She is an amazing dancer! Her moves are very well defined and mezmorizing. I was the lucky one to follow Christina, I can't really review my own peice, but I had a lot of fun doing it, the audience really enjoyed it and gave me a ton of energy back and everyone gave me positive feedback, so that's my review. After me was Wendy. Wendy is a beautiful woman who comes to us all the way from Ithica NY! And it was bad drving that day! Wendy opeined up with some great veil work and then went into an energetic drum solo. I'm pretty sure it was Mayana next, she did a great rendition of Ice Queen, full of energy and creativity! Chemange closed off the first set. Chemage is always captivating with her strong muscle bound moves and her big smile. She has great technic and clear moves!

Ok...so after intermission and some of us got some drinks in us, Valizan graced the stage! Now those of you who know Valizan are thinking "Valizan did Classical Egyptian!?!?" Valizan is a well known Tribal Dancer in TO and well... it was a surprise to see him on the bill! So his peice was creativly Eygptian, he displayed classical Egyptian emotions with - close to - Eygptian dance. :) It was absolutly halarious! I loved every second of it! Leyla had a tough act to follow, but she stole the audiences attention! Laura followed up with a gorgeous improve, Laura's fairly new to the TO scene, she had recently moved from Halifax, and boy can she dance! She had a really beautiful costume as well! Kathy in her new outfit wowed us all as she usually does. She started up with some veil work. Her peice was well put together and so clear, I love watching Kathy dance. And of course the show ended with Mayada! She did a dance to an instrumental Zeina and was amazing as always and also in a new to her costume! She's always so high energy and has such a great stage presence!

I can't wait for the next one April 1st "Funky Fusion". I have a really awsome choreo in store, so you'll have to come out and see it! I've also heard some rummors of some very interesting dances being planned...including a celtic fusion ;) I'll keep you posted in the details!

Well, that's settles it! I've finally opened up my own bellydance Live Journal! YAY!

So I suppose my first update is that Sephira Al Maya and I have an upcoming gig in Hamilton. I'm not exactly sure, when...or where for that matter! HAhahah! But there will be live musicians! A totally new renovated resteraunt/cafe/bar place with water pipes and the whole 9 yards! It does sound exciting! Apparently the owners of the resteraunt are going all out on this! They are making this place as authentically Eygptian as possible! I'll keep you posted on everything!
