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!

Oooo! Happy Friday friends! It's your #FridayFesh. Guess what? TWO members of Farfesha Belly Dance will be performing at the upcoming New Mexico Belly Dance Gala Show, May 8. Performing separately …not together ...because you know, Covid. 🙄 We'll be shimmying together soon. We promise!

Anyway, hope you can check us out! It will be a fun live-hosted show of member performers and we hear there are going to be some amazing prizes given during the show. 😍

In The Company Of Women: The Pandemic Void Only My Girlfriends Can Fill

Oh my, this is the truth right here. No matter the Zoom practices, online shows, group texts, and Facebook time, we can't wait to get back together in person with our joyous laughter and dance sisters!

Happy #fridayfesh friends! ✨💜✨

Oh my gushis, Farfesha Friends! Can you believe it was a year ago that we had the MOST epic "Roaring 20's" Taaj Palace Performance Salon? Well they roared alright! 🙄

That's ok...we promise to make up for a painful year and bring you joyous laughter in 2021 and beyond. Stay safe, wear a mask and we love you! (Photo by magical photographer @jasondevereaux!)

Today is #GivingTuesday and Farfesha would like to remind our Feshie Facebook Friends that the arts and entertainment industries have been especially hard hit during this pandemic.

We encourage you to support the arts locally- whether buying from small business, donations, volunteering, or just attending a virtual event. Our sister and brother dancers are missing the stage and could use a little help! Here are a few suggestions for non-profits in the dance community:

National Institute of Flamenco
NDI New Mexico
The SEEDs Program at Pomegranate Studios

And our local belly dance studios including:
Sirena World Dance Studio
Amaya MariaElena
The Saltanah Dancers
Areena Belly Dancer
Annya Ishtara

It was so nice to get back in person for #Farfesha practice this week (masks and social distancing of course!) at Sirena World Dance Studio.

Awww Farfesha birthday season draws to a close. Last but not least is Theresa L. Sherman.

Theresa has been belly dancing for 14 years and with the Farfesha troupe four. "I love the belly dance community so much. I love to see everyone work hard and improve or overcome barriers or struggles, both personally and in their dance. I get excited for each and everyone."

Mostly, Theresa loves the history of the dance. "To dance a song many before me have danced, with respect for the culture and the trailblazing of American Cabaret dancers, is my greatest honor."

Happy birthday Theresa!

08/14/2020

I don't know about you, but we're really missing our community gatherings- from spicy nights at Taaj palace to backstage shenanigans to events like the balloon fiesta, pictured here from 2014.

But we encourage you all to stay safe, wear your mask, wash your hands, and love each other. We'll be back together in no time!

Meanwhile, be sure to support local business, whether that's virtual classes at Sirena World Dance Studio or your favorite eatery like Taaj palace while we are unable to dance.

We're also looking for feedback on ethics and belly dance in New Mexico. Please consider completing our survey by Sunday, Aug. 9.

Oh my! It's another Farfesha birthday. 🎉This time it's our peachy ray of sunshine Wendy, one of the strongest, cutest, sunniest women to shimmy across the dance floor. She keeps us smiling and we miss her cute face during these COVID times.

✨✨Happy Birthday Wendy!✨✨

Our #Fridayfesh kicks off another #Farfesha birthday celebration this weekend.

If Michelle Morrison is the Queen of Farfesha, better believe Miss Evon Harrison is second in command. 😆 She can tell a thousand words in one glance and her smile makes our hearts melt.

A founding member of Farfesha Belly Dance Troupe, Evon says that she fell in love with belly dance because of the history behind the dance form and the friendships that can and do develop within the dance community.

“The elevation of self confidence in women and men is a beautiful thing.” Happy Birthday to our beautiful Evon!

Today Farfesha joins our community to honor Juneteenth, a day to celebrate but also a day to reflect on how much we still need to do to achieve true equality.

The message of emancipation was slow to arrive on that day in 1865, and similarly justice has so often been delayed since.

So today, we encourage everyone to use this moment to commit to action. Here are three ways:

*Donate funds to a civil rights or social justice cause if you are able.
*Support local Black-owned businesses.
*Contact your elected officials to demand change.

Need more help with these? Visit the #hellajuneteenth site at www.hellajuneteenth.com for ways to get involved.

Times are challenging, and sometimes confusing, and mostly downright frustrating. But if we stick together and care for each other, we can get through it together. That's how the #fesh does it.

05/29/2020

No make up for a while? Badly needing that haircut or pedi? Feeling guilty for too much Netflix and not enough dancing or working out?

It's ok. Just be kind to yourself and remember to be your own kind of beautiful right now.

Whether in classes and workshops, at a restaurant, or on the big stage, we hope to see your beauty in person soon enough!

✨✨✨Happy #fridayfesh! ✨✨✨

Ah birthday season is in full affect over here in the #Farfesha Troupe. ✨✨🎂🎉✨✨

And on this #FridayFesh we kick of the weekend with a happy happy birthday for the Shimmy Queen herself, Michelle Brown!

She needs no introduction, but let’s just say the world of belly dance in Albuquerque would not be the same without her, as the founder, director (and all things in between) of the legendary Farfesha Belly Dance. Not to mention she is the author of NINE books, costumer, friend, mother, and mentor…well we could go on but we’ll let her tell us why belly dance became her passion:

“The dance is beautiful and challenging and creative and inspiring. But what has touched me the most in my years as a dancer, performer, and teacher is the connection to other women.

Through Farfesha, I have found my sisters-from-other-misters, and made friends that remain true regardless of how infrequently we see each other. The connection I have with students I taught 5, 10, 15 years ago still runs deep as does the more ephemeral but equally poignant connection with an audience.

To have someone say I changed their life through my classes or brightened their day with my performance is the greatest gift belly dance and Farfesha has given me.”

Awww…we love you Michelle! 😘🥰😍🥳
