What a joyful night! These students have been amazing friends and supporters.

 
SCA friends at the Barony of Altavia have been bellydancing for years at fighter practice. They allowed me to be a “guest lecturer” and present an 8-week ATS Level 1 Fundamentals class. On the last day of class, we dressed pretty for pictures.

Then they surprised me with gifts and a thank you card.

Pile of gifts, so overwhelming

A Henna kit, some bellydance bling,
and a Thank You card from all of them

My lovely teenage student decorated this pot
to be a “bellydance plant” for me <3

 My heart is overflowing with thankfulness.
