I hadn't performed in public since before giving birth to my daughter Kayla. I was nervous at first but it felt great going out there and dancing. After the second song all my nerves disappeared and I danced away freely. Can't wait to do it again in May :) Our troop is called The Jewels of Araby.
Here are a couple of pictures of me and the rest of the beautiful dancers:
Here is my new custom made veil by Sonya from Expressions.
Look how pretty our veils look! I just love our veil dances, it looks like beautiful wings fluttering through the air.
This is Habibi and we use our zills, always a crowd pleaser!
And this is our Egyptian dance using our canes. Check out my bedazzled cane in the previous post.
This is me and my awesome cousin Sharon who joined belly dancing shortly after I joined...we have so much fun together!
Oh and I have to add that my mom made my belly dance dress. Didn't it come out wonderful?! I wish I knew how to sew like her. She also made my wedding dress...maybe one day I will post a picture of that. She is so talented! Gracias Ma!
Thanks for looking!
