New Website, New Term and Om Laila Students Rock!
This week has been super exciting for us at Om Laila Studio. For one thing, we finally launched the new website, which has been in design + development since January. If you are in Toronto and have always wanted to take belly dance classes, the new website should make finding and purchasing classes very easy. We have also added a new Introduction to Bellydance Course on Saturday at 12:30 pm. Here's the link to the Intro Course in the shop.
In other class related news, the new term is starting in just over a week! Please see the new schedule and register for your classes soon to reserve a spot.
Prepping for Performances!
On the events side of studio happenings we have been VERY busy preparing for performances. Roula, Kaleena, Shaila and Liz recently performed a funny skit and drum solo at the Sarah Skinner and the Sisters of Salome's fundraiser Be Bine or Bite Me on February 13. It was a fun night spent with new and old friends!
Upcoming performance prep includes the Hip Hip Hooray Cabaret that is next Saturday, Feb 28th and the biggest Bellydance Choir undertaking yet, the Star Bellydancer Canada competition on March 15 (21 days away!). The piece we are performing has been evolving and refining since last summer.
The Bellydance Choir is also making their own costumes and rehearsing for an extra 1-2 hours together every week. We thank them for their hard work and dedication. Even if we all fall off the stage and come in last place we have all been making progress as individuals, and as a group, and that's already a huge success!
See our events page for more information about these performances.
We do have permanent studio fairies but in addition, the Om Laila students are also crafty and resourceful fairies that always help to make the studio better for everyone by bringing in decoration, snacks for the back-to-back-to-back classes, painting (the stairs in the studio were painted entirely by long-time students!), cleaning and making fabulous and practical items like a hanging business card holder and fancy, fuzzy boards for choir songs!
Thank you students for caring so much about everyone and the space. We appreciate your generosity but most of all we appreciate your presence. You are all bright lights and shiny stars :)
