WESTSIDE NEWS, WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, 2010
SAILING down the Nile in Egypt five years ago Olga Gjokmarkovic learnt her first steps of Latin dance from a dance instructor doubling as a tour guide.
It was those unorthodox beginnings which have paved the way for Boogie Camp, Ms Gjokmarkovic’s laid-back Latin dance school, which concentrates on fun rather then perfect technique.
‘‘It’s a social dance school,’’ she said. ‘‘We have Barefoot Boogie classes for
people looking to learn a couple of steps from differ- ent Latin styles; Latin By Candlelight which is de- signed as a date night for couples, with nibbles and some romantic dancing; and Boogie Fit classes to get people into shape.

Mineral Makeup – a cosmetic evolution. Written by Ananda Mahony
As a skin care specialist and someone that has suffered from skin problems in the past I am always looking for quality cosmetics and make up that minimise the impact of synthetic chemicals while at the same time support skin health. With commercial foundations this has always been difficult. Despite their ability to “cover up” many foundations contain a raft of chemical ingredients that actually worsen skin conditions such as acne and rosacea, irritate sensitive skin and significantly contribute to pore congestion.
Slow Aging with Antioxidants Written by Ananda Mahony in Balanced Mag
Every day we are exposed to air pollution, sunlight, smoke and more all which give rise to the production of “free radicals”. Damage to our DNA, protein (collagen & elastin) and protein remodeling (skin healing) are all side effects of the production of free radicals. Internally the metabolism, the effects of stress and emotions and the result of everyday body process that utilize oxygen all create free radicals. Externally ultraviolet light from the sun and environmental stressors such as smoking, pollution, poor dietary habits and chemical exposure also contribute. The production of free radicals and the damage they cause is one of the key mechanisms of aging. As one ages, the skin’s structural foundation weakens. Specifically, collagen which keeps the skin firm and elastin which maintains elasticity and helps prevent the skin from sagging. Free radicals attack your skin’s collagen and elastin layers, accelerating the creation of fine lines and wrinkles.
