It's been a while!!! [Jul. 30th, 2008|12:31 pm]

Well, it certainly has been a while since I posted here last!!! I find it so lame when websites and journals aren't kept well updated, and look what I did! I will try to do better in the future! Lots has happened since my last entry here... Last summer the studio moved to our beautiful new College & Ossington location, we are happily settled in there (can't believe it's only been a year!) We would usually have a big anniversary party, but I'm putting that on hold until after the baby... that's right, for anyone who doesn't know yet, I'm pregnant, and in the home stretch right now... only 4 weeks until my due date (August 28th)! I can't wait! I'm still teaching all my classes with my big belly and it's been really great. Actually I've been telling all my students that life is hard as a very pregannt woman (getting out of bed, tying your shoes, walking around, etc.), but I always feel terrific when I'm dancing. So I may be exhausted, puffy, and yucky feeling when I first walk into the studio, but by the time I finish teaching a few bellydance classes, I feel energized, happy, healthy, and ready to take on the world! I think it must be a combination of hanging out with all my wonderful students, bellydance movements which are specifically meant for pregnancy and birth, and good old endorphins making me feel high!!!

Happy New Year to everyone! Hope this year brings everything you wish for! I've updated our goal board at the studio with everyone's progress and results which is definitely an inspiration if you're thinking of starting on some new goals for the new year as I am! One of my goals for 2007 is to post on this journal more, and hopefully you guys will too so we can have a lively, interactive forum here to ask questions, share ideas and suggestions, post pics, and more! Talk to you all soon!

Goal Board! [Sep. 6th, 2006|10:00 am]

Hi All!

I've installed the Reach for the Stars - Goals for Fall 2006 board at the studio and it's all ready for you guys to start posting your goals for this season! I have SO many, including choreographing all the dances for classes to learn and perform at our showcase on December 2nd (which I've already started doing!), losing about 10 pounds, running 10K outdoors at least 3X's/week in addition to all my other regular work-outs, painting the studio, the list could go on and on! But the one I chose to post is making sure I practise my bellydance technique for an hour at least 3 X's/week. I've tried to do this for a while, but other things seem to take over my day - so I'm making a promise to just do it this time!!! Can't wait to see what all your goals are and helping you reach them this season!

Hi All!

I haven't posted here for quite some time! I'm Baaaaaack now, and I hope you'll all join me here to stay in touch, post questions, and comments, etc. more and more to make it truly interactive and fun!

We held the All-Percussion edition of Rak 'n' Roll at the studio this past long weekend and it was lots of fun! I put a few pics up at http://www.mayada.ca/flow/raknrollaug.htm. Check them out and post your own experiences about Rak 'n' Roll here!

Rak 'n' Roll was AMAZING! [Apr. 3rd, 2006|08:46 am]

WOW, Rak 'n' Roll's Funky Fusions night was amazing! It had that terrific vibe like the last one, a responsive audience, and such a totally cool mix of performers! I've put a photo of each act up at http://www.mayada.ca/flow/raknrollapr.htm

Many people have suggested moving it to a larger venue since my studio is so small and it was sold out this time, but my whole point in having this event was to have it be intimate and not in a theatrical or clubby atmosphere - there are TONS of those venues for dancers to perform at already! I wanted to create a new place for new dancers to gain experience and pro dancers to experiment with new ideas without feeling pressure! And this month's Rak 'n' Roll and the response I got from it from people involved as well as audience members just re-confirms that idea! Guess I just need a bigger studio - maybe soon!

Our first Rak 'n' Roll show this past Saturday was lots of fun! There was a lovely mix of performers of all different levels from student to pro and everything in between! Each Rak 'n' Roll has a theme and this one was Classical Egyptian-style. Check out the pics at http://ca.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/meagsbb/album?.dir=/1716&.src=ph&.tok=phIhhXEBj1.NWEFw
Make sure you check out the Funky Fusions edition of Rak 'n' Roll on April 1st!
