In January 1998 we held our 7th Visionary
Bellydance Retreat on the beautiful island
paradise of Maui. In addition to studying
bellydance with Delilah, Hula with Nona
Kaluiokalani and drumming with
Armando Mafufo, this year's participants
also enjoyed special guest teacher Laurel
Victoria Gray, who taught Russian Gypsy
and Modern Persian. This was the most
aerobic retreat we've ever offered! The
group that came together was quite
diverse, from top-notch professionals like
Sapphira from Nevada to enthusiastic
beginners like Jace from Washington. Ages
varied from 18-70, and we had a couple of
husbands come along for good measure.
On their own time they managed some
rather interesting adventures. . . Michael
went wild boar hunting and Jim went
biking down Haleakala Volcano!
clear for snorkeling and the wind was soft.
We had a busy but blissful retreat.
