That Time I Raked it in Memphis, TN.

Last weekend I had the pleasure of teaching a Baladi Progression workshop in Memphis, TN. My sponsor, Larena (yep, you read that correctly!), is a performer and instructor that I met at the Miami Bellydance Convention, back in 2009. Now she is the owner of Isis Dance Academy, a very successful studio, and every year she organizes a special day of workshops and show. This year I was the lucky guest teacher and I could not be happier about the experience. Larena is surrounded by loyal and dedicated students and friends, who made my stay feel really special. The Saturday night Soiree took place in the quaint Evergreen Theater and featured a vast array of styles, form sword to fan veils, to fire and even some jookin by the Outlaws.  My only regret is not having enough time to visit the city, which was new to me. I guess it’s a good excuse to go back!

Rakstar Raked!

September 30th saw the beginning of another Rakstar, nowadays one of the biggest belly dance festivals in the world. It was five days of non-stop classes, exciting shows, and a top-level competition. For me, since I am involved in the organization, it was also the realization of months of hard work, and I am very happy to hear that dancers from all over the globe had a great time and want to come back!

Apart from organizing the shows, I also had the opportunity to perform both as a soloist and as part of Virginia’s award-winning troupe, Wa Nour Al Ayun. Needless to say, I had a blast!

Lorena is a two-time belly dance gold medalist based in Miami, FL. She teaches workshops and private classes nationally and internationally, and is a favorite at theater shows, parties, and family celebrations.
