Postponing in-person conference until October 8-10, 2021
Dear Heart of America family,
I am heartbroken to announce in-person festival is postponed for 202 due to COVID-19. The health and safety of our star teachers, attendees, staff, vendors, and guests are our highest priority.
There are many unknowns related to COVID-19. Some people who become infected will not become seriously ill while others won’t even know they are ill. This is what makes the situation is so serious. Each of us could potentially pass the virus on to others without even knowing it. The coronavirus reproduces itself very quickly.
Unfortunately, certain individuals are at higher risk to become seriously ill. For example, people over the age of 60,those who are undergoing treatment for cancer, elderly grandparents, or individuals with diabetes, heart disease, and other medical conditions are in the higher risk category.
I’m super happy to announce that all three teachers that were booked for 2020, Camelia, Najla, and Jillina, will be with us for sixth annual conference on October 8-10, 2021.
The show must go ONLINE for 2020… Stay tuned for details on our 2020 virtual edition of Heart of America Raks – re-imagined. We will keep dancing!
Soon, I’ll be sending news about our virtual competition and show and possibly some workshop classes. I’m working on it now and will make the updates to our website soon.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you back October 8-10, 2021 where we will dance and celebrate our love of the Arab culture in-person again.
