Jaia hosted a hafla (think open floor dance and music party) tonight. Talk about a blast! Mary Lou and I went and brought some food. Great food there too — people brought finger food that was really tasty. No potato salad or anything. Most of it was home-made goodness. Tasty.
There was live music (and the name of the group escapes me). They play traditional middle eastern instruments and have performed with belly dancers frequently.
Of the dancers who were there, we ended up dancing together and just having fun. We swapped ideas about how to work with zils and veils. It’s really fun when you can do something like this and just enjoy each others company.
I had a real ball. =)
