Happy New Year :)

Happy 2012!

I would like to take this moment to wish all of you the very best for 2012. May it be a lovely year for each of you, full of love and dance!

2011 has been a year of excitement and many 'firsts' for me, in order of appearance:

 - Working out (with actual weights! RAR!)
 - Making 2 instructional DVDs with Aziza in Canada (AHAHA it still feels surreal!)
Isis Wings DVD
- Getting married (!!!)
Wedding <3
- Planking (across 3 borders! at our wedding! at Razia's workshop! in the Seychelles! at Aziza's DREAM CAMP! etc.. :))
- Crazy road trips (Everywhere!)
Euro Trip? Euro STAR!
- Adopting a fluffy camel (Princess Lumpy! <3) together with Queenie, the brand new Bellydancer of the World!)
Princess Lumpy reading 'The Artists' Way'
- And last but certainly not least: Performing in a tutu. (Twice!)
Flower Waltz from our recital - the Nutcracker

But it was also a year with lots of dancing, teaching, traveling, and spending time with loved ones. I've 'touched down' in Thessaloniki, Leuven, Heerlen, Eilat, Saltaire, Waanrode, Katowice, Bruges, Würselen, Montréal, The Seychelles, London, Torquay, Kempen, Duisburg, Oslo, Amersfoort and that's just 2011. I do feel truly blessed :)

I am looking forward to seeing you all in the new dance season, with so many wonderful classes, workshops, guest teachers, shows and events coming up in 2012.

Happy New Year!
