This is just the beginning of my uber thanks!
Thanks so much folks!
There are too many of you – you all rock – you make Ottawa so amazing as a Belly dance/ growing Bollywood dance/ fusion dance etc. Community
I know there will always be a few bugs in the system, but last night seemed to flow like magic and pass by so quickly! I appreciate the efforts all of you dancers go to to make sure your outfits are fun/ phenomenal/ flashy and that you put in hours of class time and rehearsals to try to get those steps just right. Kudos!
