I'm taking a hiatus from my weekly restaurant and nightclub shows in anticipation of the birth of a baby boy in September, 2016! I'll find my way back to the nightlife soon enough, but in the mean time, catch a show at a local hafla, health expo or community event, or book a me for your upcoming baby shower or women's party!
Mama Baby Pamper Day
A relaxing day of wellness and beauty services and educational workshops. Food, drink and child care included. I'll be joined by fellow Barakaat member (and expectant mom) Fariha to teach a Prenatal Belly Dance workshop from 12:15 - 1:15. The nurturing movements selected for this prenatal class are well-known to help ease the discomforts of pregnancy, prepare mom and baby for a healthy delivery, reduce pain during labor and encourage healing and recovery after birth. Get tickets.

2nd Annual Ruth Raqs Hafla!
I'll be performing along side my student troupe, Raqset al Asra, and numerous local belly dance stars. Proceeds benefit House of Ruth, one of the nation's leading intimate partner violence centers, helping thousands of battered women and their children find the safety and security that so many of us take for granted.
