"Thank you for spicing things up at my Bridal Shower!!
It really made my special day fun & exciting!"
Steve & Robyn with Tahya, May 2007
Here's what one bride had to say:
"After hearing Tahya talk about how belly dancing is a dance of celebration and fits in naturally at a wedding, I knew I had to ask her to be a part of my wedding reception festivities!
Book Tahya today for your wedding reception
BRIDAL SHOWER: Tahya will provide a full one-hour lesson for your guests!
Historically this dance has been a part of women's heritage for thousands of years and one very significant application of the dance has been to celebrate a wedding! Women come together for the purpose of "showering" the bride with affection and gifts of food, etc. They celebrate with drumming and dance! I invite you to include this age-old tradition when planning a bridal shower.
A full one-hour lesson is provided for bride and bridal shower guests. We review hip articulation, graceful hand and arm movements and an intro to the shimmy!
Book Tahya today for your bridal shower and enjoy a fun day with the "girls"!
NOTE: For something additionally unique, consider henna "tattoos" (just above the ankle or perhaps on one's shoulder) ~ The history of henna tattoos also dates back thousands of years. Cultures from Africa to the Arab world to South Asia have embraced the art of henna body decoration-for fashion and beauty, for personal expression, for social and religious occasions, for healing purposes and more. In recent years global travel and migration, along with increased communication and cultural sharing has brought henna to many parts of the West, mingling traditional practices with new interpretations and uses. Since the mid-1990s henna body art has enjoyed a vogue throughout the U.S., Europe, and the world.
Henna body art is (way cool!) all natural, temporary, painless, and safe for all skin types - a unique way to decorate your personality, spirit, and body. Henna derives from a plant, whose leaves are dried and crushed to make a powder with natural dying properties. The application of henna creates beautiful designs that temporarily stain the skin a reddish-brown that often develops into a rich brown color and lasts one to three weeks, depending on the care the dyed skin receives.
From the Pharaohs of ancient Egypt to modern-day wedding parties,
henna has enjoyed a variety of applications and meanings throughout the centuries.

You are doing a fantastic thing for our community ~ presenting programming with a diversity of women whom you have taught. They are dressed beautifully and dancing so well with such confidence. You give us the opportunity to see beauty unfold in the lives of women. This transcends art and is an important part of the spiritual revolution that is happening now.
