Hey fabulous dancers! Our monthly performance salon is evolving with the New Year! We are teaming up with New Mexico Belly Dance to keep bringing you great shows. We're also moving to an invitation format (although you can of course let us know you're interested!) as we explore some great dance inspiration. Starting January 21, we'll be celebrating PROPS!

Happy to all our Feshie friends out there. We are soooo excited to announce that our one and only Michelle al Farfesha will be teaching a workshop at next month's Burque BellyFest! 👑 YAY! Come learn the joyous double veil with her.
We know...one veil can be unruly, much less two! Michelle will take you through mastering two veils and some of the moves that make double veil dynamic! A limited number of veils will be available to borrow. This class is limited in size so be sure to register soon! https://www.nmbellydance.com/burquebellyfest
Have a sparkly weekend! ✨✨
Ooooo! And we almost forgot! Tonight is the Night on the Nile at Sirena Studio! Theresa al Farfesha will be performing along with an amazing collection of dancers. Very limited tickets are still available so get yours asap. Visit www.sirenastudio.com
Leyla was one of our absolute favorite dancer and teachers. She was sweet and kind and encouraging and so down to earth. It was one of the highlights of my career and of Farfesha's performance life to teach and perform at her absolutely incredible festival, but what I'll remember most is her in the backseat of my car, holding my little daughter's hand as they dozed after a hike in the mountains. The world is a darker place without her beautiful light.
Für meine große Liebe Leyla ist nach langer, schwerer Krankheit am 21.05.2022 der letzte Vorhang gefallen.
Voller Dankbarkeit schaue ich auf eine 37-jährige innige Liebe und tiefe Verbundenheit zurück. Sie war der Mittelpunkt meines Lebens und unserer 30-jährigen Bühnenkarriere. Mir war es vergönnt mein Leben mit einer außergewöhnlichen Frau, Choreographin und Tänzerin zu teilen.
Gemeinsam durften wir die Welt erkunden und unzählige fantastische Menschen/Künstler, Tänzerinnen und Tänzer, kennenlernen und weltweit viele Freundschaften erfahren.
In großer Dankbarkeit an unser Publikum und unsere Gäste, unser geliebtes Ensemble, unsere Projektgruppen und Workshopteilnehmer, Künstlerkolleginnen, Juroren, Contestanten, Sponsoren, Fotografen, Techniker, Fachzeitungen, Agenturen, Veranstalter, Händler, Helfer, Freunde und Familie und die vielen Anderen verneigen wir uns ein letztes Mal.
In tiefer Trauer
Euer Roland Jouvana
Die Beisetzung findet am 01.06.2022 um 12.00 Uhr in der Kapelle des „Alten Friedhofs“ in 47057 Duisburg-Neudorf, Sternbuschweg 295 statt.
Ich bitte um Nachsicht, dass die Antwort auf Beileidsbekundungen aufgrund der vielen Zuschriften etwas mehr Zeit in Anspruch nehmen kann. Vielen Dank für Eure Anteilnahme.

Because this meme never gets old...but also....does this argument go through your head as a dancer? Happy !

We'd like to send a big virtual hug to our dear friend Amaya MariaElena as she and Pete recover from a car accident earlier in May. She has given us so much inspiration over the years. Let's send that back to her through good thoughts, blessings and love as she recovers. We love you Amaya!
