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.
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.
