Well-known Durban-based Flamenco dancer Linda Vargas Fernandes was recently invited to give a two-hour presentation on her book and mental wellness at the KZN school principals association conference. The book is titled Did you Pack your bag: a checklist for mental baggage.

As a consequence, she has been invited to give the same presentation at the Gauteng Principals Conference in June and the National principal's conference in September at the ICC.

School principals have invited her to do staff workshops on mental wellness for their teachers and asked her to include dance for fun.

 Arising out of this suggestion are three trial STAMP dance classes.

These three trial classes are R50 each and focus on mental wellness through dance. One is in Westville on April 22 at 13h00 and two in Umhlanga on April 17 and 22, 2023. No experience necessary and no age limit.

Wear cool comfortable clothing and shoes. Contact Linda on 0823218065 for more details.

Linda is also an author, lecturer, pioneer in multicultural relations, motivational speaker, dancer, dance teacher, international dance examiner, choreographer and producer.
