Heading Out To New York

A Belly Dancers Trip To New York - Leyla Najma's Belly Dance Blog Just wanted to let all of you know that my daughter and I are heading out to New York and we will be spending this weekend with costume designer and renowned belly dancer Noora – owner of Decotach. Noora is making my Marilyn Monroe dress for a workshop in April so I can’t wait to get fitted and see my dress.  But our main goal is to spend the weekend with dancers from the east coast and get a better idea of  their community ethics and ideals along with comments on today’s issues.

My daughter Savanah will be behind the camera while I will be conversing in the dancers round table of discussions. It will be her first time to New York and behind the camera so for a 15 year old, I am pretty proud of her for stepping up to the plate!

Daniel won’t be going with us this time, he will be taking care of the home-front plus our 3 legged dog Zipperino and Booboo our 15 year old cat. He is definitely apart of this trip though because he is not only supportive of the documentary but he believes we need more. Not only is he the best business partner in the world but I couldn’t ask for a better husband! I must have earned kudos in a past life because I wouldn’t be where I am today without him!

So next time I write I will have more to talk about so stay tuned for my return trip meanderings,  tales and tidbits!! I’m sure it will be a journey worth talking about!
