|§Chadia, What a great workshop! Thank you so much for arranging it and offering it to your students. It was greatly appreciated. Nourhan is fantastic and she broke down all the steps and movements that it was a pleasure to dance. She has such a great sense of humor, like you too! If I learned one thing today which made me feel better was knowing that maybe why we all dance is we find comfort and solace in being ourselves and comfortable with our bodies. Whatever it may be this is and will always be belly dancing for me. I am so happy that I spent this beautiful Sunday dancing! Elaine|
|§ Thank you
Chadia for holding this workshop on March 11th and putting it all together.
Please thank Nourhan for her time and giving such an amazing class.
I absolutely loved it and can't for another one. Thanks again. Jessica

Thank you so much for all of your friendship and support over these many years, my dear. You danced beautifully at your May 3rd show and again, let me tell you how impressed I am by how well all of your students performed and how many "true" performers are coming out of your work. Congratulations and may you have many more such successful shows.
|§Dear Chadia: I surely learned a lot and had a great time too at your March 21st workshop. You are a wonderful teacher and beautiful performing artist whom I always enjoy to watch, and try to learn to dance like you. XOXO, Jeanna|

knowledge! It was an absolute pleasure to get to learn from you (and to
try and keep up!).

|§ Hi Chadia,
Thank you for an amazing time last night at the Dec 11th Holiday show!!! My family and friends LOVED IT!, especially the little ones!!! They can't wait for the next one!! I've never seen you perform solo outside of Rakasah so it was such an honor watching and learning from you.
I think everyone danced so beautifully! Thank you for being such an awesome instructor and great mentor!! I'm so blessed to have started my bellydancing career with you! Love, Marilyn
|§ 11/22/09 Chadia, I am so thrilled to have become a part of your troupe full of some of the coolest, hottest and most talented chicks around! I feel like you all have quickly accepted me and Im surrounded by great friends whenever we get together. And it is pretty funny that my first show with the troupe was this past Rakkasah on October 18th. Way to throw me in head first! It was an awesome experience and so was the Halloween Hafla the following week. I look forward to seeing you and my girls again every class and rehearsal. I cant wait for the workshop this Saturday, either! Or the Holiday show! Love you ladies! - Akasha|
|§ 11/22/09 Hi
Chadia, Thank you for a wonderful workshop; I really enjoyed myself! You
are such a joyful dancer and that feeling radiates to your students. It
was the first time I had danced to a live drummer, Gamal was wonderful!
While we were dancing, I also observed that every single woman in that
room, even though we were all very different, looked so beautiful. I am
happy to have been a part of such a nice afternoon.
All the best, ZaLisa
|§ 11/22/09 Chadia,
The worshop was just wonderful! My favorite part was when we all danced
in a circle...learning and connecting as we went around! I learned many
new things yesterday and even had a few moments where I experienced joy
in dancing (vs. thinking about all the things that need to come together
for a particular movement).
Anyway, thanks ever so much for a great Saturday afternoon
All my love and best wishes to you and yours this Thanksgiving. Jan
|§ 5/5/09Oh what
a Rakkasah!!! Cinderella is back on her stool by the fireplace. Thank
you so much for this weekend, fairy godmother. I loved every second of
it, and learned a lot from watching the performances, doing the workshop
(I'm still sore!), and best of all, performing and rocking the house with
my sister gypsies.
Thank you is a little bit weak for all you have done for me, not just this weekend, but the journey getting me to this happy place (where I get to look like a princess, dance myself to exhaustion and be part of a sisterhood). Youve changed my life, Chadia!!!
§ 2/16/09 The show yesterday, February 15th, was such a JOYOUS celebration of the female spirit! BRAVA to you for yet another FANTASTIC show and to ALL your dancers for their impeccable performances! Gia alQamar
