Feb articles and a workshop tip

Hello hello :)

Long time no blog, I hope you are all doing well. I've been out in the woods a bit more this (very warmish) winter, but there was time to dance, learn, and read up as well.

Eschweiler Wald

These are some of the dance articles I enjoyed in the past month:

On dance and confidence - by Flamencobites:

On being present - by Shari Geller

Tips for developing (stage) presence - by Artistsintheplus:

Tips for competitions - by Dance Comp Review: (especially handy with the Benelux BD Championships coming up in March!) http://dancecompreview.com/8-tips-for-your-first-competition-and-reminders-for-any-competitor

Finger cymbal awareness - by Daniele Elizabeth:

Also check out this gorgeous Tango video with Ezequiel Lopez and Camila Alegre: Argentine tango "Mala Junta" - World Championships 2015

And finally: A dance/experience/workshop tip for anyone living in/near the Netherlands:

Last Saturday I was lucky enough to experience a contemporary whirling workshop with Valentina Lacmanović in The Hague, NL called 'SPIRAAL', hosted by Fazle of CLOUD Dancelab. It was a profoundly uplifting, highly informative, and heartwarming experience. She will be teaching again in Amsterdam soon, so be sure to keep an eye out for her workshops!

Workshop SPIRAAL, the Hague, 30 Jan 2016

For those who live near/in Belgium: This month Salwa of BE will be hosting the fantastic Mercedes Nieto for a workshop weekend and hafla (with live music!) in Brussels. The Masterclass is sold out, but there are still some spots left for the Saturday and Sunday workshops. You can enroll for the workshops and/order tickets to enjoy the hafla performances (I will be dancing in the open stage part) here: Mercedes Nieto in Brussels.

Mercedes Nieto in Brussels - 20-21 Feb 2016

Furthermore I will be teaching a masterclass in Heerlen, NL on Hands, Arms and Arabesques on Friday 12th of February, 2016 (12:30-16:00h) hosted by Yamila of the Netherlands. Enrollments for this special MC are still possible until 6th of February via bellydancenl@hotmail.com - I hope to see you there, too!
