During the weekend of May 4-6, 2018, Invoketress’ Alaina attended the 2018 Bellydance Blossom Festival hosted by Arabesque Dance Academy in Toronto. Below are some of her reflections from the event.
“Believe in yourself, believe in your art” – Dina Talaat
Feeling inspired, awestruck, energized, full of love, sad it’s over and hungry for more! What a wonderful weekend of performances, panel discussions, and of course workshops!! 🤩 Saw many familiar faces and met many wonderful new friends! Inshallah, I see you all again soon. I discovered many things and I learned that I have a lot more to learn!! Thank you Yasmina Ramzy Arabesque Dance Company for creating this special event 🙏, Mohamed Salah for being an incredible teacher and choreographer 🐺 and of course Dina Talaat Sayedfor coming to Toronto for the first time! 🌟 The whirlwind of my first dance festival ended with a joyous halfa/disco tonight and I could’ve kept dancing all night long! 💃🏻 I only have one photo because I was too busy enjoying the festival to take more!!) 😍🙏👌Wow!
