12 months in 12 sentences for 2012

This time last year I was inspired to write a post reviewing 2011 in just 12 sentences.  I like the format and wanted do it again.  So here's my write up of 12 in 12 for 2012.  Wishing you a Happy New Year and I hope that 2013 brings you lots of shimmy and sparkle. 

In January, I started learning Awareness Through Movement and was a busy bee planning for Baladi Blues.  

February was a successful sell out NADA and Habiba Dance event in Edinburgh with the Baladi Blues Ensemble, and I had a wonderful time teaching and dancing with the band.

March was a mixed bag of teaching taster classes and a chance to be in the audience for a change.

In April, I experienced another joyous JoY and treated myself to some goodies from the Farida Dance souk. 

In May, I got a little bit hooked on my new pair of zills.

June brought Big Dance and an unusual gig.   

In July, I went to train in Dusseldorf in my first ever trip to the annual Hilal Dance Week with Suraya Hilal and Alessandro Bascioni.

In August, I managed to fit in a day of dancing Baladi with live music, in between London's main events.

I had an uneventful September, although managed to fit in a Classical veil workshop with Juliana.  

In October my ballet teacher had us pretending to be snowflakes

In November, I performed once again at Edinburgh's longest running Egyptian Dance event.

My December included more Hilal Dance in London with Suraya; and looking forward to exciting things to come in 2013, including some more live music and promising performing opportunities.
