This was so much fun! Our first ever Belly Dance Hafla ~ thank you to everyone who participated. We had help planning this first ever Hafla at Poise Studio. From flyers to decorations, music and MCing, Julie and Karla helped to get the Hafla going. We had a beautiful variety of performers, such talent they have! Alchemist de Fleurs, Gypsy Traders, Morgana's Belly Dance Bizarre and Cookie Lee Jewelry provided a wonderful selection and variety of items to fall in love with and take home with you. Karla taught a Gypsy Bolero workshop the ladies enjoyed, they all looked so gorgeous in their flowing big skirts. We had open dancing and belly roulette which was a lot of fun, everyone doing their belly dance moves and smiling and laughing. We had donations for the raffle from Akeso Massage Arts, ChiRoweYoga, The Plumbers Inc. and Julie. Thank you all for your generosity. Proceeds from the raffle ticket sales as well as food donations went to the Oregon Food Bank. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoyed the Hafla.
