Posted:Hi everybody!
I'm new to the forum here, but not new to this site.
I hope I am posting in the right section!

My name is Zayna, & I am a professional belly dancer.
There is a new trend in belly dance to fuse poi with veil work,
poi + veil = voi

Anyway, there is going to be a belly dance festival in the midwest, USA.
And there is a voi workshop at the fest.
I taught it last year,
this year we have Donna, a hula & belly dance instrutor teaching voi.
So just incase anybody will be close, here is the information:
