There's a lot to be thankful for this November

There are two big Extravaganzas this month:
* November 10-12 - Great Lakes BC Instructors Showcase in Lansing, MI
* December 1-3 - Spellbound Presents: Jill Parker Workshop Weekend in Chicago, Il
Both have lots of workshops still open and there are great shows at both.

If you have a youngster you've been wanting to introduce to bellydance here's your chance. There's a Fusion Workshop on Michael Jackson's Beat It for dancers 8 and over in Johnsburg IL on November 4

And of course, the annual event we're all waiting for the Ho Ho Ho Habibi Holiday Hafla will be on December in River Grove, IL. Come out and have a great time while helping the kitties.

As Always: Please let me know about bellydance-related event your planning in the Chicago, Milwaukee, Elgin area.
