My new artistic life

My new artistic life

After a crazy romance and very painful breakup one year ago, I had to rearrange myself completely. In the process of finding out what has caused the big crash, I questioned everything that I was doing as well as everything that I wanted.

I noticed that I actually was never completely happy with dancing.

I tried a lot of different things in my performances, trained and studied the dance carefully, but I never got the feeling that I could actually express everything I wanted to express through dance. There was always something missing and I didn’t know why.

Only when I was at the lowest point of my life and at the very bottom of myself, I realized, that this was exactly the point: Dancing is not enough!
I need to do more! I can do so much more.

I decided to cut down the time I spend with dancing and to take all the time I need to find out what to do. I worked with various teachers and coaches, but in the end it was a friend who brought me to the crucial insight.

In a moment where I was just enjoying myself, singing along some pop song in the radio, he looked at me in a strange way and said:

It’s so beautiful when you are singing.

And I immediately new that this was it. That’s what I need to do: Singing!

So that was what I did. I found new teachers, started taking classes and practiced, practiced, practiced.

And this is now what I want to do for the next 78 years of my life!

First Place for the Desert Flowers – Dance Festival Bernau 2014

My children’s group has won the 1st place in the category “Kids Oriental” on February 23rd, 2014 at the 10th edition of dance festival Bernau. The Jury, that was composed of 3 members, admired the traditional Egyptian dance “Saidi” presented by my Desert Flowers.

The group has already participated in the dance festival Bernau in 2012. At that time they were not able to get a place among the top three. But this time our joy is huge because we succeeded to take the trophy home.

Congratulations Desert Flowers! Just keep it that way! You are great!
