Cathy is Back!

Cathy began her Egyptian dance training with Denise Enan, world-renowned dance master, in 1977. She went on to perform professionally as a soloist for many years in the Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto areas and worked with many popular Arabic musicians and singers of the ’70′s and ’80′s.

She was a founding member of the Egyptian Enan Folkloric Troupe and the Lebanese dance troupe, Banaat Sahara, in Ottawa before moving to Lebanon for seven years, where she had the opportunity to absorb the language and culture and explore the music and dance. Since her return to Canada she has been performing and teaching both Egyptian and Lebanese dance styles, and rejoined the Enan Troupe 2008 after a long absence. She has more than 35 years of performance and teaching experience.

“I love this dance in all of its authentic forms, and have tried very hard to promote teaching standards in the Ottawa area. I encourage my students to have fun and be expressive while staying loyal to its cultural roots.”

Cathy will begin teaching at Duniya Studio in February. For more details go to http://www.DuniyaStudio.com

Cathy is also offering private and semi-private lessons in her private studio. Contact her at cathy@orientaldance.ca or call 613-816-5401. Follow her on LinkedIn (must be a LinkedIn member).

News from Leslie & Shakti Fusion
After experiencing a rewarding eight year relationship with Makin’ Moves Studio, I’m deeply saddened to announce that we will be parting ways. Sharply increasing costs of rent in this neighbourhood generally have made it impossible for any independent instructor to afford the space (let alone, for the owner to rent it to us at a loss), and thus a transition will emerge.
We are grateful to both the previous owner, Erin, and the current owner, Michelle, for accommodating Shakti fusion and supporting Tribal fusion belly dance through its establishment in Ottawa, for being wonderful to work with, and for creating a welcoming community space, and we encourage dancers to support this unique studio space and its ongoing courses.
For the moment, I’ll be focusing on completing my graduate studies and running a few workshops, before searching for a new long term home in the downtown Ottawa area. In the meantime, I encourage all our past and present students to keep up your practice and keep an eye on this list for information on our upcoming events :)

Musical Lessons

Guitar Lessons

Want guitar or mandolin lessons in Ottawa? I teach bellydance but I’m also a professional music teacher. I’ve played the guitar for over 30 years and for 13 years worked full time as a touring musician. I just moved here and have lots of openings for students in my home studio just east of downtown Ottawa. Adults and kids (age 7 and older), acoustic or electric, many styles. I make music fun – if it’s not, why bother? jamie@jamieanderson.com  http://www.jamieanderson.com/guitar.html
