I will admit that I let a sprained ankle get me down at the beginning of this year. Nothing is more of a bummer for us than not being able to move! However, this injury naturally brought many dance opportunities with it, and though I enjoyed a birthday not long ago, I feel like 20 years younger with all the extra excercise, feeling more beautiful more often, and getting out to dance with friends! New opportunities have sprung up in the Persian and Arab communities and meanwhile, we are exploring the nuances and depths of Taqsim and improv in dance classes and building a progressive project in drum classes. I couldn't be happier seeing you students grow! Not to mention all the wonderful opportunities to study with some of the great artists of our dance form...Monthly workshops with Sah'ra, May workshops with Ahmed and July workshops with Momo Kadous right here in Laguna Hills....Thank you everyone involved, family friends, students and George, who make every day a better day. Love you all.
