Hafla - Flower Power
November 15, 2015 - Our annual Hafla event themed, "Flower Power - The Freedom to Dance". And like last year, we held it in the most cosy and fun manner at the lovely Shabestan Persian Restaurant located in Robertson Quay.

And we celebrated SG50
August 14 & September 13, 2015 - Year 2015 marks 50 years of nation building for Singapore, the little red dot. And so we celebrated this jubilee year in the colours of our flag, with our red and white double veil dance at Shabestan Persian Restaurant located by the Singapore River.

December 21, 2014 - An early Christmas for the folks at Bedok Lion's Home for the elderlys!
November 16, 2014 - We always like themed parties, oh well, at least I do! Hafla of the Persian Cat was such a fun and funny party! Lots of bellydancing, good food, and most importantly happy times together!
July 25, 2014 - We don't need a reason to party. And so, we brought our Samba fusion bellydance item to liven up the Singapore River! Oh and we performed for the Singapore Heart Foundation Golf Fund Raising event on that same night too!
July 3 & 9, 2014 - Filming of bellydance classroom scene and bellydance performance scene for MediaCorp TV Channel 8's drama series "Life is Beautiful". MediaCorp Artiste, Aileen Tan is such a lovely and humble star!
June 28-29, 2014 - It is always a pleasure to share our love for bellydance with one another. Thank you Elaine and Hester for organizing the workshops and charity performance night at Essence of Raqs - Penang, Malaysia!
April 24, 2014 - The lovely dancers from The Bellydancers' Course 2014 came together to make our very own "Chocolate Almond Dates coated with dessicated coconut", as part of our effort to help raise awareness and funds for the Lupus Association Singapore. These dates were sold out in a flash during our "Lights Up!" event on the April 27 at Hotel Re! And together with the yummy Baklava sponsored by Shabestan Persian Restaurant, the VIP dining vouchers sponsored by Levant Middle Eastern Restaurant, the Almond cookies sold during Chinese New Year and some cash donations collected during the event, we raised a total of $5,928 for the charity. The amount may be small but most importantly we hope to raise awareness of Lupus so more able people will come forward to help this patient-led patient support group.
In year 2013...
November 2, 2013 - It's Deepavali and we had a belly good time dancing at the Lions Home for the Elders. To add to the Middle Eastern flavour, the girls served the folks delicious chicken sharwama from Levant. And a lovely way to end this sweet afternoon, we donated a total of S$800 to the home.

Thank you Pei Fen Teh for organizing the event!
