Well, Zombiefest is over (it was an AMAZING time! Check Facebook for photos) but this crazy month is just getting started – As some of you may have been hearing through the grapevine, the Twelve Houses store that hosts our classes and events will be undergoing some changes (you can read about them here). We at the Lovely Dozen have been aware of the changes as they’ve developed and want to promise you 3 things:
1. The Hafla and Workshops will absolutely continue as scheduled – stay tuned to our Workshops page for any new details on things to bring or do in the area, but the locations, dates, and times specified there will not be changing in any way.
2. 12 Houses Bellydance classes will also continue as scheduled through the end of the month, and beyond if possible. We are working towards finding another location for classes, and will certainly be updating this page as those plans fall into place, but it is currently our plan to continue with Wednesdays at 6:30 for as long as we possibly can!
3. No matter what, the Lovely Dozen Troupe will keep on dancing! We have lots of options for rehearsal spaces (since it’s easier to fit 8 gals in a house once or twice a month than it is to move a whole class!) so we will continue to be available for Workshops, Performances, Parties, and Community events as long as our wonderful community will continue to have us sharing with them. We love what we do and we don’t intend to stop anytime soon!
So there you have it, lots of change coming, but the core of our mission remains the same: to share our love and joy of Middle Eastern Dance and the wonderful people it brings into our lives, no matter what! We look forward to many more Workshops and Performances to come, starting of course with this month’s Hafla at The Twelve Houses, Saturday Oct 27th at 6:30 pm – there’ll be free food and dancers from around the state performing and sharing their love of the art and each other. It’s gonna be a great time and we hope to see you there!
