All I want for Christmas is...

Posted on 9th December, 2019

I am still coming down from the adrenaline filled evening at the hafla on Saturday - what a great night!  I was so pleased to see the room bustling with guests, stalls set up, an amazing array of raffle prizes... and then to top it all we raised £1323!  An amazing total - made up of the hafla money plus £50 from 2 of my dancers who were sponsored by family and friends, plus £133 from another lovely dancer who sold her handmade crafts at the hafla and donated 100% of the money.  What kind and generous dancers I have!  I am thrilled to be able to donate this amount to Redditch Nightstop just in time for Christmas.


I just loved ending the night with my all time favourite Christmas song "All I want for Christmas is you" and what started as a solo lead into a "flash mob" with all my ladies joining me on the dance floor. Magical!


I feel tired now and know my body needs a break for a few weeks.  My knee is just about holding up with support, so I need to rest over Christmas and try and ease myself back in gently in January.


I have lots of plans in the pipe line for 2020 - we already have Alexis booked in to teach a workshop in February, and another fabulous drumming workshop with Fulya in April, plus I am performing in a burlesque show ( a first for me!) and am booked to teach a workshop for Fulya in June on the day of her next hafla.  I need to think about what I want to work on and achieve as a dancer and as a teacher as we enter a new year and a new decade!


I want to wish all my dance friends a magical Christmas  - eat, drink, be merry and dance on the tables!!  See you in the new year & thank you for all your support.
