March 6th brings us the Ottawa Dancers’ Bazaar and we welcome you to Take our shopping POLL! and you can also get the bilingual Miniposter (404 KB PDF) with all the details!

Vagabond Opera in Kingston, ON

While at the Toronto winter festival, I ran into Vagabond Opera (Cabaret Gypsy Klezmer Jazz band), who are musicians from Portland, OR that also play with March Fourth Marching Band, they currently perform shows with Rachel Brice and Mardi Love of the Indigo, and we are incredibly lucky to have them on this side of the coast! By chance, they are playing in Kingston Monday! If you love the new musical stylings in tribal fusion bellydance, this show is a must-see!!! The drive is definitely worth the field trip.

Us and JJ!Good morning!

Thanks to those who came out on Friday in the cold to see us do our Bollywood thing and celebrate Diwali!  I’ll be updating the Bollywood For Fun website soon with video clips etc. Busy, busy, busy!

The next few weeks seem to have something on every weekend – so be sure to check the Dancers’ Newsletter online as well – It’s hard to list everything every week and still call them Updates… So I have condensed things as much as I can, but there is a lot online!

Read on!

If you are able to help out at the Dancers’ Bazaar on Saturday, please email me!  There are always benefits to being  a volunteer there!

INQUIRIES/Announcements

Teacher wanted:

“Do you happen to know anyone in my neck of the woods (well my school’s area) who teaches Belly dance? We are putting together a set of community arts workshops and would like to invite community artists to participate. We can offer a little bit of an honorarium but I think one of the real benefits is exposure to potential new students / customers. The local glass studio has had a significant flow of customers through his involvement with previous workshops with our school.

Woodroffe High School, is in the west end. Near Woodroffe and Carling. Another easy land mark is Lincoln Fields bus station. Any one interested can contact me. Feel free to put my phone number out – 613-721-3458.

Thanks for your help.”

Christy Stanhope  christy.stanhope@rogers.com

The Fall Fusion Cabaret – Special Thanks and DVD available!

“I’d like to extend a special thanks to everyone who helped make our sold out show, the Fall Fusion Cabaret, possible.  Mostly to Ms. Brice for travelling all the way up here for the weekend, and to our performers who came from other cities to dance in our show!  Locally, I’d like to extend gracious thanks to Tracey for all her help and support, Tom and Lainie for video and photo, Dantessa for the bar, and the Arts Court Theatre for their continued support of our events.  Thank you all for coming out to the show!

For those of you who missed out, or who would like a DVD:
DVD is available for order by contacting Tom at tom@darnermedia.ca and they are $20 each.
The DVD does not include Rachel’s performances, but includes our guests Rosanna McGuire, Tribu Ghabal, Mat Jacob, Jamilah & Milana, Anna & Safiya, and Shakti fusion (including solos by Niki, Natasha and Leslie).  The sale of the DVD goes to support the production of the event and we are lucky to have so many original performances in one place!

Also please note: Anyone who took photos or film of Rachel Brice at the show, these may not be published without her consent! We always ask that no flash photography or filming happens, but sometimes it seems people can’t resist.  Please do not post photos/videos of performers online without their express permission :)”
