Here’s the email from OSCA – I am sure the city of Ottawa is also taking registration for the 2013 programs!
Just a reminder that registration for all 2013 Ottawa South Community Association programs starts tonight, Wednesday, December 5, 8:00pm on-line at oldottawasouth.ca
In-person registration starts Thursday, December 6, 8:00am at the Ottawa South Community Centre 260 Sunnyside Ave.
Please log on to oldottawasouth.ca and familiarize yourself with our website before 8:00pm.
You will notice two registration buttons on the site:
1st – for the Christmas Break/New Year Break Camp
2nd for the Winter 2013 Programs.
Please register for the Winter 2013 programs if that is your priority. You can always register later for the Christmas Break/New Year Break Camp. There is plenty of room available whereas many of our Winter Programs have limited availability.
Staff will be on hand this evening if you are experiencing any difficulty at 613-247-4946
Please do not give up registering on any given program even if it appears it’s full.
We have registration strategies being used that use multiple computers to register for one spot in a program and when one is successful the other computers abandon their registration – So Keep Trying.

Never heard you guys before, but Dying Song is already stuck in my head!
So while my dancing will be confined to the dance floor, I am looking forward to seeing some of my dance friends there!
A while back, I picked up Amrita Choudhury’s book on mudras to help me explain them in class and practice them myself! Here’s her latest promotional video:
And since I am talking about the Bellywood fun in my world, I’ve also got plans to see Delhi2Dublin when they hit Ottawa at Maverick’s on October 25th.
They often seem to be here on a weeknight, but since it’s right after my Thursday Bellywood, class, I think I can manage to be a night owl for one night!
I totally love their new album and have used 2 of their songs for class routines already! Here’s one of their early songs that I have performed to at some events in the past:
This snippet is from the weekly Dancers’ News that I send out to relay information about Ottawa and area belly dance related news – workshops, shows, events and anything that might interest us as belly/ bolly dancers. And since we all have a variety of interests, I also share bits about other things too!
Good morning all,
Looking forward to a lovely fall week – yes – it’s now Fall! Automne! change of seasons! and cooler air – yay for those of us who like that kind of thing!
On Friday the 29th, I’ll be getting my ping on with some “puh-tock puh-tock” as I will be playing in the Ottawa Charity Ping Pong event in the Byward market – have you sponsored/donated a bit o cash yet? If not, please feel welcome to head over here and drop some coin for 4 great Ottawa Charities:
And if Creative Sci-Fi is more your thing, head on over to the Ottawa Browncoats site for the September 30th Ottawa Charity Serenity Screening - $12 advance donations get you your BIcket!
Come and see us today @ http://www.can-con.org/ to get your bickets, we will be there all weekend in the vendor/fan table area!
Also wishing good luck to the folks in the Army Run today!
Creating choreographed pieces for my students and/ or troupe/group mates can be a fun and challenging experience. Years ago, before Bellywood, before I had a Mac, I would try to write out the routines for my students.
This is what I write now:
And that’s why they never see this until now! These two routines are in the process of being developed. My dancing of it will be videotaped over the next few weeks and privately shared with the performers as they prepare for the June OCCP!
No notes- they now can make their own!!
See some of you tonight!!
Last night was my last Bellywood class at Old Ottawa South for the January -March session and tonight will be the 4th last class at Dovercourt Recreations Centre.
In April, on the 3rd, I start up again at Old Ottawa South, and should be ready to get everyone dancing to a fun new routine! And then on the 26th, if there is interest, I’ll run a 7:30-8:30 class at the Routhier Community Centre in the Byward market. Both groups will learn the same routine and have the option to dance in June at my Ottawa Centre Class Party – a semi private show for 300 of my closest belly dance colleagues and their students!
So be sure to sign up and come out and have some fun!
FULL CLASS DETAILS
Catering to both of our favourite dance forms and more – the Ottawa Dancer’s Bazaar is going to have loads of goodies to accessorize, as well as outfit us for future dance events!!
You can also come chat with me at my booth – TAV Creations/Halyma’s Belly Dance! It gets too logn when i include Bellywood with Halyma too !
Hope to see you Feb 26!
Here’s the scoop:
Tuesday’s 7:30 to 8:30 class is running and rockin’ it at Old Ottawa South – and there’s still room to join in! Come by next week if Tuesdays are good for you and give it a try at 260 Sunnyside.
Wednesday’s class at Dovercourtis gonna give it one more try tonight – if we can get one more sign up, the book keepers are happy,the small group gets some serious focus and the class will run. So if you are thinking about it and just want to try a class to see if you like it – please come on by tonight for the 7:45 p.m. class at 411 Dovercourt!
UPDATE : Yes, both Tuesday and Wednesday classes will run this session – so come on by!!
Otherwise, I hope you are all dancing and having fun this cold blustery January!!
