RAMED Hafla*/AGM Details

Sun, November 6, 2016 from 2:30 – 5:30 p.m.
Cathedral Neighbourhood Centre, 2900 – 13 Avenue, Regina

RSVP below by Nov 4 so we know how much food to get (with any allergies/intolerances).

Come dine, dance, and discuss RAMED business for a delightful afternoon with the Board. There will be an area to swap/sell your gently used costumes, accessories, music, etc. A drop-box will also be set up to collect your suggestions for a workshop instructor for the Pro show in fall of 2017.

Your RAMED Board has been working hard this summer to put our house in order. We have extended everyone’s current membership till December 31, 2016 to better serve the dance community. All members will be sent the documents to be discussed at the meeting by October 22, 2016. Please review them ahead of time so we can keep the business portion of the afternoon to an hour. We are also looking for a couple new Board Members to join our ranks. We meet for a couple hours once a month, details will be provided along with meeting documents if you’d like to join us to help organize these fun events for the Regina and area dance community.

Bring your music (on CD or electronic device with adapter) and perform a choreography you’ve been working on or just dance to whatever is playing. Let’s get together and have a great time. Hope to see you all there.

* Hafla is a belly dance party with food and dancers taking turns performing for each other and/or some open-floor dancing for everyone to get up and enjoy the music.

RAMED Update and Arabian Fantasy 2016

Happy Spring everyone! It’s been a while since this site has been update but you’ll be happy to hear that we’ve got great news.

First, I’d like to introduce your new RAMED Board for 2016: Lisa Zurburg as President, Melissa Biro as Treasurer, Kate Johnson as Secretary/Membership/Library, Mea Cicansky as Vice President/Events Co-Chair, Roxanne Rogowski as Events Co-Chair, and Annissa Spechko as Communications Chair. Feel free to contact any of us with your RAMED related questions and concerns.

Our first order of business has been the eagerly anticipated RAMED show. We are still working the details but please add Saturday, June 18, 2016 to your calendars for Arabian Fantasy 2016. While the poster isn’t ready yet please send in your application to perform by May 15. Details and the online application form can be found on the Events page. We are looking for volunteers for the show. If you’d like to lend a hand, please email or contact us on Facebook. Remember to purchase your membership if you plan to dance in the show.

RAMED membership gives you access to our library where you can borrow videos, music, and printed materials; access to Gale’s Wholesale Ltd.; a bursary program where you can apply for subsidy to attend a belly dance workshop (Ashley Kirkham will be here in April); information on local dance events on our website and Facebook; voting privileges to help make our dance community thrive; and lastly, your RAMED membership provides you reduced rates and performance opportunities at RAMED events.

Your RAMED Board has many plans for the coming year so stay tuned for more news.
