What an amazing weekend we have had.  Thank you to all the students who participated in the Fundraiser event for Hilary Friday night at the Breakers Club.  We added lots of colour, smiles and shimmies with Veils, Wings, sword and fan veils.  We all got a bit teary when Hil’s husband said a few words but dryed the eyes when the Kath and Kim comedy impersonators came on.

Saturday’s Soiree was hot in more ways then one.  Thank you to Susan from Black Diamond in Newcastle for hosting such a great day.  What a beautiful backdrop the girls had put up for us to dance in front of. There was a great vibe and atmosphere with lots of great dancing, yummy food and thing to buy. Thanks to all the ladies who bought our wares from our Indra store.  The Tribal Tye Dye pants went like hot cakes. Gabby and I hope to have the pants plus other goodies up on the website soon for you to purchase so please be patient.

Then it was back to the Central Coast to dance and teach at a Bollywood party. Everyone went way out with their costumes… the girls in beautiful saris and the guys with white tunics and turbans.

Sunday it was Newcastle again for Fee’s Neon Tribal Fusion workshop.  Fee shared one of her Choreographies with us which had everything in it from Industrial to Indian Mudras. Fee is an amazing dancer and teacher and we are lucky to have such a giving lady in our dancing community.  Even though I couldn’t stay for Jacqueline’s Fan veil workshop the feedback from Gabby and Marg was very positive who said they both learnt so much.

I finished off the weekend filming Kim’s Hafla at Davistown “Sahara Stars”. Congrats Kim the girls danced beautifully and it was lovely to see them happy with the costumes they had bought from the Indra Store.

This weekend I’m off to teach Bollywood at the Mangrove Mountain Ashram.  There are still spaces available if anyone feels like coming along.
