A Triumph of a Different Sort

Last Saturday afternoon my bellydancing teacher held another bellydancing Hafla( gathering) as a fund raiser for a local charity. I was the only one of her class students who showed up and this meant I had to stand up and dance with her first thing. Not so easy, but it went off Ok because she is a thoughtful, loving and considerate being and teacher.  She did arm and hand movements I am now a little better at than I was when I first started going to her class.  I was able to follow her and relax. Plus she kept it short.There were other women who did solo dances and vendors of clothing, handmade art, and soap.

But I was further challenged by the fact that there were 4 different people who happened to have come to the Hafla who I not only did not expect to see, but whom I had not seen for years and had negative associations with. One, a woman I dislike completely made a comment on how we hadn't seen eachother for years as though we had actually been friends. She then asked me if I was a bellydancer. I told her I was a student.  I was tempted to leave and not come back but I didn't. I made up my mind to stay and be as present as I could, considering how uncomfortable I was with this unexpected blast from the past.

I was lucky. One of the negative association visitors, a man,  didn't remember me because he's starting to have short term memory loss.  The other two people simply talked to me a little about the past and the ice was broken and it was OK.  The attendance of the event was low, considering how many people had said they were coming and didn't, but there was just  enough food, comradery, and fun to make the event enjoyable. It was a triumph of a different sort for both my teacher, the other participants and me.
