Hypnosis for women

Judy White MacDonald…Nursing Consultant, Professional Coach, Clinical Hypnotist

All aspects of our lives add to the definition of who we are as women, but the person ‘at the core’ is the most important one. Connection with this ‘real’ self identity is necessary for us to answer all the important questions in our lives and to find that often elusive joy, happiness, success, peace and contentment.

As women, so many of us have been trained to put the needs of others first. We so often don’t even understand what our needs are, or what to do about them. Hypnosis allows us to relax and allow the subconscious mind to reveal truths and strengths which might never have come to light otherwise. There are many ways in which hypnosis can be helpful to women. Please connect to: http://www.timeforachange.ca/womenspage.htm and learn what hypnosis can do for you!

Dance the Night Away Fundraiser

Click HERE to see more shots!

Bollywood For Fun, originally uploaded by Halyma.

On Saturday, November 14, 2009, the Dance the Night Away Fundraiser was born!

A new twist on Catharine’s Fundraising parties that began way back when Hartwell’s used to be the locale for a fun night out filled with socializing, dancing and fun! A return to this nature of party may be the way to go! I certainly had fun!

The Montgomery Legion was decorated with the gorgeous draperies of Michele Roy, living up to her now well established reputation of being the community’s decorator extraordinaire! Even with the speakers in front of her work, it made the simple space into an elegant atmosphere to showcase some local and out of town dancers.

We were lucky to have some amazing dancers come out for the evening, and while I have not opened up the privacy settings on everyone’s photos, I’ll open up the pics for viewing if I get permission to do so! Meanwhile, if you click on the photo of our Bollywood For Fun group, it will take you to my Flickr page where you can see many more fun shots from the evening!

Please feel welcome to add your own comments of your experiences or anything else in the comments below!

See you at the next fun Ottawa Belly Dance community event!

A busy weekend for Halyma ahead!

During the day on Saturday, I will have a booth at the Women Entrepreneurs’ Xmas Sale – Last minute decision so I am working frantically today to get some new Eco-TAV stock ready!

DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY FUNDRAISER

Presented by Catharine Crerar
Kent Street at MacLaren, Ottawa, Ontario.

Our next party is very different. It will be an ‘open stage’ or ‘impromptu’ show. Everyone is welcome to dance! If you want to perform, bring your CD, a belt, and let it rip! The DJ will happily spin your song and the moves are all up to you. When the floor opens up…we all get to dance. BUT there’s more….some wonderful professional dancers are coming to town that weekend and have enthusiastically agreed to perform for us and add to the overall joy of the night.

fundraiser decor
Michele Roy’s displays

Nathalie Lebel who will be presenting a workshop on the 14th and 15th will be dancing for us.

Lunette Harper from British Columbia will be performing a Turkish Roma piece.

Kelly Enston is coming in from Toronto (hopefully with her troop) to show us their moves.

Google these wonderful dancers….I think you will agree that we have a great evening ahead of us!!

It will be at the Legion Hall at the corner of Kent and MacLaren….very central, the room will seat 150 people, has a big dance floor, and the bar stays open until 1 am!!!

There will be a late-night buffet of mid-East snacks. It will be a great way to pretend that we live in a warmer, sultrier climate!

The party will still be a fundraiser for Kids Help Phone, Distress Centre, Bereaved Families….and very serious of course!!!….but I felt it was time for a bit of a shake-up. We haven’t ‘kicked up’ our heels for a long while..and our partners might enjoy it too!

Doors open at 7:30 (first come – first serve) (Party starts at 8 pm and goes ’till we drop!

Tickets are available now at $25…just contact Catharine by email: dragonslivehere.glebe@gmail.com

$30 at the door – if any are left: contact Catharine to be sure!

Great door prize is a beautiful hand-made Egyptian dance belt courtesy of Oasis Studio.
Raffle prizes include a one night stay at the Ottawa Westin and breakfast for 2 at Daly’s;

a 2 night stay at the Sheraton Centre in Toronto;

many theatre tickets; another beautiful dance belt; restaurant gift certificates; and miscellaneous prizes from various shops around town.

There are only 150 tickets available so don’t delay. If there are any left, they will be $30 at the door.
You are all much appreciated! Catharine

10 Tips for Shopping at the Dancer’s Bazaar!

After a short conversation at last week’s Sunday Brunch, it was suggested that one of our brunch gang should write up a how-to guide for those coming out to shop at the Dancer’s Bazaar – and that can be used for any event!

I think that everyone has a plan when they come to the Dancers’ Bazaar – and I am hoping that you’ll take a moment to share your thoughts in the comments below – give some sage advice, share some awareness, whatever works!

But here are some general ideas to get you percolating!

1 – Check your coat – it just makes it easier to navigate the aisles and try things on!

2- Bring a tote bag or two. Or it you have a big list, bring a larger suitcase and check it with your coat!  You can always pack things into it through the afternoon!

3- Bring cash. UPDATED INFO: There is now an ATM Machine in the hall – but know that there are fees of course!While a small number of vendors can accept Visa/MC/AMEX, most cannot.  Or plan to go out and get cash after you’ve had a first looksee! And try to have some smaller change too – most vendors try to bring a good float, but it helps if you have the correct amount for those smaller pieces!

4-If you are trying to match a piece you have already, bring it along! You cannot be sure of colours, even of gold and silver, unless you have some part of your costume there for reference.

5- Quality costs. If you are a new dancer, you may not need to invest $60 plus in a hip scarf, and the $15-$25 ones will do you just fine.  But if you really want to have a piece that will last a while, check the stitching, and note the price – usually, the quality items will cost a bit more, but it is worth the investment.

6- Negotiations. This one is a tough topic – some vendors are really wanting to move their stuff and are willing to haggle a bit in order to get the piece gone, but still at a fair value for them.  Often this can be the case with used pieces, or if you are buying a larger ticket item, you might be able to get a discount on some other pieces.

Be aware that artisan/designer/one of a kind pieces are all more labour intensive than something that was imported in bulk from overseas…and think about it before asking that designer/artisan to drop the price on their pieces.  Often we are not actually asking a price that realistically reflects the time, creativity and supplies involved.

7- Wear something easy to get in and out of! A tank top over a good bra and leggings, under a loose fitting tunic or dress will not only let you be in style these days, but will also allow you to whip on skirts, try on bedleh sets  and more without having to wait in line at the changing rooms.

8- Bring a portable cd player and headphones. This is a bit iffy as most new cds will be shrink wrapped.  But you can easily check on used ones if you have your own system to play them on.

9- Be spatially aware. The Dancer’s Bazaar flows in waves of people.  There are times when it is quieter and there are booths that will be rockin the whole 4 hours.  If you are coming in with a huge backpack, and/or a baby carriage, think about maybe bringing along a friend to help watch your stuff, in a spot that is out of the way.

10-SMILE. This is fun – say hi to the vendors, the volunteers, and keep your energy light!  Remember that most vendors cannot “chat” for very long, but being pleasant makes the whole day more fun!

And finally – go vote for what you want to see at the Ottawa Dancers’ Bazaar on the Bazaar Shopping POLL!

Add you comments below to share any good advice you have for the day too!

Us and JJ!Good morning!

Thanks to those who came out on Friday in the cold to see us do our Bollywood thing and celebrate Diwali!  I’ll be updating the Bollywood For Fun website soon with video clips etc. Busy, busy, busy!

The next few weeks seem to have something on every weekend – so be sure to check the Dancers’ Newsletter online as well – It’s hard to list everything every week and still call them Updates… So I have condensed things as much as I can, but there is a lot online!

Read on!

INQUIRIES/Announcements

Teacher wanted:

“Do you happen to know anyone in my neck of the woods (well my school’s area) who teaches Belly dance? We are putting together a set of community arts workshops and would like to invite community artists to participate. We can offer a little bit of an honorarium but I think one of the real benefits is exposure to potential new students / customers. The local glass studio has had a significant flow of customers through his involvement with previous workshops with our school.

Woodroffe High School, is in the west end. Near Woodroffe and Carling. Another easy land mark is Lincoln Fields bus station. Any one interested can contact me. Feel free to put my phone number out – 613-721-3458.

Thanks for your help.”

The Fall Fusion Cabaret – Special Thanks and DVD available!

“I’d like to extend a special thanks to everyone who helped make our sold out show, the Fall Fusion Cabaret, possible.  Mostly to Ms. Brice for travelling all the way up here for the weekend, and to our performers who came from other cities to dance in our show!  Locally, I’d like to extend gracious thanks to Tracey for all her help and support, Tom and Lainie for video and photo, Dantessa for the bar, and the Arts Court Theatre for their continued support of our events.  Thank you all for coming out to the show!

For those of you who missed out, or who would like a DVD:
DVD is available for order by contacting Tom at tom@darnermedia.ca and they are $20 each.
The DVD does not include Rachel’s performances, but includes our guests Rosanna McGuire, Tribu Ghabal, Mat Jacob, Jamilah & Milana, Anna & Safiya, and Shakti fusion (including solos by Niki, Natasha and Leslie).  The sale of the DVD goes to support the production of the event and we are lucky to have so many original performances in one place!
