On September 19th Eshe accepted a 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Award. The 40 Under Forty Business Achievement Awards give recognition to Hamilton’s next generation of business leaders. These 40 individuals are under 40 years of age and consistently make their mark in business and contribute regularly to their respective communities. Thank you Business Link Media Group!
This is a choreography class meant for children aged 4 and up. It’s a great way to spend time together and try something new. There’s no need to be a great dancer or have previous experience.
This class has an optional performance date Saturday December 17th at 7PM. I try to keep costumes as simple and affordable as possible, often dancers already have the pieces they need at home. Our last costume was just all black clothing with a hipscarf provided by me.
Join us Sat Oct 20th for bellydance in The Casbah! Guests are Kenzie, Dragonfly, Wild Orchid & Audra Simmons. Of course Mahasti will be offering up their own spooky takes on the holiday season. Show starts at 7PM sharp. Kids under 18 attend for free, everyone else is $15. The Casbah is located at 306 King St W, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
Congratulations to all of the artists who shared their hearts at HIBC.
Saturday September 15th we are closed because it’s time for HIBC.
