What have you done for your self lately??

Well, hello everyone. Once again I decide to take a moment from my busy schedule to analyze the question that once or twice pops in my head "what have I done for my self lately?" ... See, the thing is that most of us stay caught up on the current of life, what do I mean by that? We are constantly working, taking care of the kids, husbands, boyfriends, family issues, costumers...if you own a business :) But the truth is that very rare you stop to say OK I need "ME TIME" today!! Have you felt like that lately?...well I know that I did, and I am still trying to manage on how to find that ME time that I need. I'm sure all of you hard working mothers out there relate...

So I have a proposal to you: Take time to realize that if you do not take time for your self, there will not be 100% time for others. Yes, you heard that right!! Just like the old saying: if you do not take good care of your self , you won't be able to take good care of your love ones.

Therefore, let's start making better decisions, better time management, happier results... Yes you can find that extra hour during the week to do something FOR YOU!! you just have to want to...

So I'm inviting you to try something new, something that I assure you will change your life style for will meet other people just like you, you will have fun, build self esteem, get in shape, and get that ME time that we talked about.

I assure you that if you try one of this awesome classes, that extra hour for your self will make a huge difference in your life!!
Hope to see you there soon :)
Do it for YOU!!

So I wanted to share something beautiful that one of my recent students wrote on her blog!! Emily Harris is an awesome talented photographer that recently joined my classes here at my new dance Academy in Pembroke Pines. I thought I had just met her in my level 1 class. The funny thing was that it seems that we had already met long time ago, and we didn't even know it :) Read Below:

December 8, 2009

I’ve recently began taking belly dancing classes at Dreams Bellydance Academy with Nathalie Zarate. I thought that it would be a fun thing to learn before my wedding in October 2010. It has been such a fun experience! Nathalie is super talented, and a fantastic instructor. Seeing that I literally have no rhythm, Nathalie says I am making great progress. I highly recommend Dreams Bellydance Academy to all brides-to-be.

So the point of this blog entry is that at last night’s class something clicked, besides my hips and finger symbols. I finally realized why Nathalie always seemed so familiar. I flashed back to a wedding that I shot early last year at the Rusty Pelican where a belly dancer performed. I remember this performance so vividly because it was during that performance I decided that one day I would take belly dancing classes. This morning, I looked back though my archives, and surely enough Nathalie was the one performing at the wedding. What a small world, although maybe not so small seeing that Nathalie is the best in South Florida.

I wanted to share a few pictures I pulled up from her performance.

Why you love to bellydance??

It is awesome to see so many people enjoy this art form. Every year the belly dance community gets bigger and bigger, it seems that everywhere I go I meet someone who is either studying belly dancing or already performing it. It amazes me to see the way this art form is growing. It seems like it was yesterday when I walked into that class room in my native country wanting to become a dancer... no one in my family understood why I choose belly dancing, but I was sure and confident on what I wanted.
Today, after 9 years of becoming an instructor, performer, producer and book author...I can definitely tell you that I will do it all over again!

When I moved to the United States I thought that I will have to put my passion in hold because of the responsibilities I had in a new country. I was so nervous and scared because I barely spoke English back then... But it was few months later when I was dining in a Greek Restaurant and got inspired by the dancer performing...She had long black hair, beautiful body, a white beaded costume, dark brown skin , and her eyes were beautifully shaped by the awesome make-up she was wearing.... It was there when I said to myself, "why I'm not performing? This is what I do, this is who I am".... A billion questions went through my head.... and there I decided that I had to get back to my real passion ..."dancing".

Today, I know why I love to belly dance and most of all I know why I love to share my passion with others.... my question is: DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU LOVE TO BELLY DANCE???

This passion that I have for dancing keeps growing every day and I always want to do more...I want to create, choreograph, perform, teach, and more...

I hope that God keeps blessing me with this wonderful opportunity to express myself through dancing, but specially to grow the ability to teach others... ;)

Tell me why you love to belly dance....

The Beauty of Dance

When I think of the most beautiful moments of my life, nothing compares to how wonderful it was for me to continue my dance career. Today with this wonderful life I have, I have unforgettable moments and I have met many wonderful people. In these moments I thank God for blessing me with the talent of my dancing, but above all things, for giving me the opportunity to touch the souls of others, and for the inspiration I get from everyone. I am convinced that besides the evil going on in the world, God has a plan for us all, and when we follow the plan with our hearts, nothing can stand in our way. I am grateful for the opportunity to produce, direct, create, dance, and even write such beautiful experiences. Today and always, I will continue dancing and carrying forward my plan, nothing will stop the passion I feel for the dance and for my work. I will continue to inspire others to keep following their hearts. But most of all, i will keep teaching my students to never give up.
