    Hej Freya! Yes, I heard about the dancing in Stockholm and I'm quite envious. I began to dance BD after I moved to Denmark so I haven't tried any teacher from Stockholm, though I would like to very much. The Layali thing in november seems very interesting and I'm thinking of maybe going there, but there´s a money and time problem. I keep checking the website to see if there still are free places in Raqias or Randas workshops.
    Actually there is a thing here in Copenhagen in October where I signed up for two workshops with Samasen who is swedish, so then I will get to try, for the first time, to be taught in my own language.http://www.orientaldancefestival.dk/

    oh, I learned how to speak danish, but I know exactly what you are talking about with the "hilarious moments as well as many empty stares". Especially with the words that sound the same but mean different things, very often something harmless in one language and completely sexual or provocative in the other. Why is that????
    Ha de!

    Hi and welcome!

    It's so nice to see more Scandinavian dancers here in this forum (and of course the Estonian ones). I have been here almost 2 years, and when I came I felt really "lonely" :p (If one can feel like that with all the crazy dance people )
    And now it's even nicer, because I can hear what happening in that part of the world. And please feel free to tell all the gossip.

    Hello again Gisela!

    The festival I was referring too "Cairo by Night' is actually not the same as the Layali festival. I wasn't aware about the other festival but checked it out. It is actually going on at the same time as the Cairo by Night which seemed a bit silly until i remembered that it is "höstlov," fall break from school in Sweden, that week. So it makes sense now--but there is certainly a lot going on here! It would be interesting to take classes with some of the teachers at Layali but I'll have to prioritize time and money.

    They have such good teachers at Cairo by Night, and the atmosphere amongst the people there is sure to be great. It's organized by Suzanne and Mohamed Abou Shebika who also organize the Stockholm Bellydance Festival and co-sponsor the Nile Group Festival in Cairo. The upcoming "Cairo by Night" is the mini-version of the big Stockholm Festival. I really had the time of my life at the Stockholm festival so I can't wait for this event! I'll be taking classes with Nour and Khaled Mahmoud...Yeeeesss!!! I'm so excited! http://www.bellydancefestival.se/

    I'll check out the link you sent regarding the festival in Denmark--it's good to know what the "neighbours" are up too! let me know what you think about Samasen.

    Regarding languages and harmless vs sexual comments: yes, it's hysterical!! You do know what "pula rundt i trädgården" means in Norwegian... Although I can speak Swedish if I have to, I'm on a little misson to teach the Swedes some Norwegian I think they SHOULD learn some Norwegian, after all...the Swedes have bugged us for years and years... (To all you other readers out there: there is an ongoing "family feud" between the Danes, Swedes and Norwegians because of shared history, unions etc. It's friendly, but we love to make fun of each other)

    Talk soon!

    Freya

    Outi!
    In Egypt...you lucky devil! Would love to hear more about your dance adventures in Egypt!

    Oh, and I just realized I left Finnland out of the Scandinavian "family feud," but I think that is because most jokes in Norway make fun of the Danes and the Swedes. I didn't mean to exclude you from the party...!

    We'll make sure to tell you what's going on over here!

    Freya
