It’s-a-not-what-you-think Belly Dance Fun’raiser!
Speaker: Anne Cameron
Topic: It’s-a-not-what-you-think Belly Dance Fun’raiser! for Afghan Girls
Anne Cameron’s Bio
My name is Anne Cameron, I am a retired elementary school teacher and I love to belly dance. I have turned this love of the dance into a means of fundraising for the Teacher's Salary Project of Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan (CW4WAFGHAN) www.cw4wafghan.ca. I have prepared a one hour workshop (can be shorter or longer) which includes a short history of belly dance, information on CW4WAFGHAN and of course belly dancing! I bring coin belts, hip scarves and veils for each participant to wear while we learn the basics of this art form. The dance lesson is a simple, 10-15 minute "follow-the-leader" Arabic version of “Heads and Shoulders, Knees and Toes” – if you went to kindergarten and grade one, you can do this…!?!? I bring everything, including the sound system. My only requirement is a room big enough to accommodate the group. Living rooms work fine as we just dance around the furniture! The sessions are simply geared to learning something new and having fun.
