Bellies & Bottle Hafla Nola Edition says
The desire to dance and drum freely with each other, not confined by class, rehearsal or performance, is natural and TOTALLY NEEDS TO HAPPEN!!!!

In the interest of making it a reality, Crescent Lotus will host the first of many Hafla's. Th term "Hafla" can create a variety of expectations. Here are 2 definitions of the word...

Swiped from Cambride Belly Dance in the UK....
"Hafla is an Arabic word meaning a party or social gathering. In the belly dance world the term hafla is used to describe an event where students,professionals, and members of the public come together in the name of belly dance "

"Hafla" pronounced from the Arabic "Khafla" (soft "a" in the word) is a "get-together" ,party,ceremony for a family gathering,clan,religious ceremony which may have an intimate number of friends or many people invited." - Urban Dictionary

Since the expressed desires are for dancing without the restrictions of class or the pressure of performance, this time to come together will not include performances. We can watch videos, share food and drink, play music - both live and canned - and dance around together to just Dance and have fun...TOGETHER.

Please bring some finger foods, snacks, or libations to share. Seriously, a bag of chips is great! But if you feel compelled to make the most delicious cuisine appropriate tastiness... (like bacon wrapped cheese stuffed dates...hint hint) that would be SO COOL!

Small donations for the use of space, cleaning staff, and studio support are appreciated but not required.
