Belly dancing in the Gulf

My friend Babs is a delightful, beautiful and very generous woman. She is from the Netherlands and is in my circle of expat friends. She also has a circle of friends ~ including the lovely woman, also from the Netherlands, who teaches and performs Arabic belly dancing.

Babs enrolled twenty lovely ladies to share the morning, donate to a local charity and learn to belly dance. The event took place in our living room.

We all learned the basic moves, saw a short video of practical experience and then danced for an hour! It was wonderful, melodious and inspiring.

The local charity will benefit from the jiggling of the coin belts to the tune of 1100 Dhms ~ enough to provide a lovely Christmas dinner for the workers. It feels so great to help while making friends and shaking and shimmying!

Aloha,

Denise
