Curious about this Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance?

Hello hello hello my friends!tribal rocks postcard

The holiday season is raining down on us, literally here in Portland…dark, rainy, long nights and a few grey days… but holiday lights are twinkling and that puts a smile on my face. And the Solstice is soon and the light will be returning…and if you are like me, just keep on with the vitamin D supplements and start the day with a smile and that beautiful momentum that carries me through the day!

So many plans in the making for the new year with this great dance that we do…and I am delighted to have many new subscribers to my blog. Welcome! I have made a short video for you to tell you just a bit about this dance, and me. And why I do what I do…and why I want you to dance and move that body too.


And besides lots of new plans, there are new online classes coming, and of course, Collective Soul Level One is starting right up in January, ready to dance you into the new year, fulfilling your dance desires and guiding you to live with gusto and beauty! And Teacher Training Level One immediately follows that… very exciting…

And I really really really want to thank all of you for being here with me this year, and many of you for over the years, and some decades!

We have had some really great times together, dancing, learning lots of new moves, did loads of journaling, some of us have performed together, we traveled the globe- both in person and on the internet, and shared laughter, some tears, and wine. And it is the dance, this magical and amazing Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance ® that has connected us…through this dance we have built world-wide communities, deep friendships, fabulously creative businesses, and incredible global relationships of support and love. We have gotten healthier in our bodies, more in touch with our inner selves and desires, learned how to love ourselves and each other with big open hearts, gotten dressed up, and shaken those hips alot.

My global troupe- Gypsy Caravan Dance Company, International, has done amazing work in many countries this year. I’ve gotten to dance with all of them and brought them all together, now THAT was creating loads of good magic and fun. They have run their own Collective Soul courses and I’m in awe of how many amazing women, and a few men, have undertaken these programs, stepped up their dance, feed their souls, and got down with the journaling and work that goes along with the dance.  See our global directories here...

This dance is a gorgeous, exciting, fulfilling, healthy, delightful, and creative lifestyle.

Following all that, I’ve been able to build and grow our Certified Teachers network. Spreading the Gypsy Caravan love… my heart overflows with so much gratitude and admiration. And next year is already proving to be bigger and better and more widespread and you all are doing what you love to do! How freakin’ incredible is that?

So what are YOUR plans for the new year?

Your dance dreams? Business desires? Body wishes?

I hope you will allow me to guide you on your journeys, as an instructor, a retreat facilitator (our 23rd Annual Women’s Weekend Breitenbush retreat is coming up in April!), a lecturer ( I love to talk!), a dance coach, and a life coach… I am here to help you get to were you want to be! Let’s make 2016 a huge celebration full of dance, wellness, connection, and as always, giving back…

With deepest gratitude,paulette-signature_red
