MID-BITS MAGAZINE! [Jan. 27th, 2006|06:46 am]
flow fitness & movement

The winter issue of MID-BITS Magazine is now out and avaialble for sale at the studio! If you haven't heard of MID-BITS yet, it's a bellydance magazine that I have been publishing for seven years now. It covers the Canadian bellydance experience. This issue features a review of the Suhaila workshop & show here in Toronto, profile of BC dancer Sandrina, an article on how to use mirrors to improve your dancing, a beginner dancer sharing their story of getting started in bellydance, bellydance horoscopes, info, and so much more. I started this magazine because when I first started bellydancing it was hard to find out all the info I needed - I wanted everything to be in one place - a whole magazine devoted to being a bellydancer in Canada! Europe, the Middle East, and America all had tons of bellydance magazines and Canada had none - we needed one, and now we have it! Check it out at the studio! Single issue $6, or subscribe for a year (4 issues) for $25.

hi guys!

A lot of students have been telling me they're coming here and checking out the flow fitness livejournal, but they don't know what to do about it all... so, I just wanted to post to let you all know that you don't HAVE to post all about your life or keep your own livejournal in order to be a part of this, you can simply post a question or a comment here... like "class was really hard last night - anyone else feeling sore from all those vertical drops?", "how does everyone get around to practising moves at home?", "just heard about this cool dance event happening - here are the details", " I performed for the first time last night and it went great", etc, etc! I first fell in love with message boards like this when I was competing in fitness... we had such a tight, supportive community and learned so much through each other... it sounds really cheesy now, but I made so many amazing friends through our network and it helped me pull through those hard workout/diet days knowing other people were going through the same stuff! OK, that was sappy, but it did inspire a lot! So post anytime you feel like you have something you want to mention!

hi guys!

I've finally got the bellydance video library up and running at the studio now!!! If you are a current student at flow you can borrow up to two videos for a week for free (you just need to leave a $20 deposit that you get back when you return the videos). You can choose from instructional, Egyptian performance, Turkish Performance, documentaries, movies, Toronto events, Arabic music videos, and more! Plus, I just found a whole pile of MORE videos in my home that I will be adding to the collection soon! Check it out next time you're in!
