Shimmies for Women's Day

It was International Women's Day yesterday, and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate this occasion than to perform at a hafla (bellydance party) with the Maya-Belles troupe. Last night was an evening of sparkly, hip shaking shimmytastic fun, enjoyed by all. 

For me, haflas are a united and celebratory event for any woman who stands up for what they believe in, or aspires to feel empowered to do so; and those who selflessly make a positive difference to the lives of people around them. Here's a photo from last night - smiley happy bellydancers! 

Happy Shimmies for International Women's Day!
