A Note from Nisaa RE: A Thousand and One Nights
A Thousand and One Nights - An Evening of Middle Eastern Dance is the annual recital featuring my students.  Normally, this event is held every year in May.  However, the ongoing pandemic has well and truly disrupted this tradition!  The last recital was in May 2019.  The hope was to revive the recital in May 2022.  However, the pandemic has impacted everyone's plans and priorities.  Long story short, performance simply isn't the priority for the majority of my students right now.  And that's OK!  To be honest, I love that I have so many students whose love of learning Egyptian dance outweighs their need to be on stage.  On the other hand, I want my students to be able to have that experience when the time is right for them.  I am confident that when we are truly at the other end of this pandemic tunnel, many of my students will want to return to the stage.  For this reason, I plan to try again next year!  Thank you all for your patience!
