Congratulations, Maelle!

Why aren't you taking classes with my friend Maelle?! Last night she only went and bloody won Bellydance Trophies! This is a big deal, y'all. Bellydance Trophies attracted more than thirty dancers from all over the UK and Europe, and first prize is a trip to Cairo.

If you've been following me on Twitter, you'll know that nearly every damn month since December I've been trooping all the way out to Wembley for the heats and finals. At the final last night, Maelle made all that worthwhile.

There were five finalists last night and any one of them would have been a worthy winner, but on the night Maelle just shone that much brighter. Unfortunately I couldn't stay to the end and see the official announcement, and the reasons why will be the subject of tomorrow's post. For now I just wanted to give Maelle some well-deserved props for all her hard work and dedication, and salute all the other dancers in the competition who were so wonderful and made winning Trophies the impressive achievement it is. Yip!
