It's about time for a good Ol' Fashion HAFLA!!!

Not sure what that means? Hafla is an Arabic word describing an informal gathering where people dance socially together and/or showcase their skills amongst friends. It's a beautiful tradition in belly dance...one that I personally miss! With so many talented teachers and blossoming students in SD, the time truly is now.
