Belly Dance Busy

I've been too busy to post lately so I thought I would take a few minutes to get the world out there up to speed with what I'm doing.

The troupe is getting ready for some really big shows in the next few months. First there is Rakkasah, which I won't be going to, followed by the "WEI Dance For Change" show on March 6th, (for more info click here), and after that is "Mujeres" in mid-April.

So far we are working on a classical piece, a finger veil routine with lots of crazy spins, a Saidi, a debke, one super fun Bollywood choreo, and today we'll be learning a drum solo. That means we'll be rehearsing 2-3 times a week for the next few months. Whew!!

Somewhere in all of this I need to find the time to make some jewelry for myself and some Valentine's jewelry for my daughter. Housework and laundry be damned! I'll be a dancing and a beading!

*As busy as I am, I do feel a little sad that I'll be missing Tucson this year. Oh well, there's always next year.*


  1. Oh wow, you ARE busy! I don't think I can make it to the WEI dance, which is too bad. I would love to see you and your troupe perform! Which piece(s) will you be doing for that one?

  2. I have no idea as to what we'll be performing. It will depend on how much stage time the troupe has. I think we're only allowed 7-10 minutes.

    I'm almost sure the show organizers will be posting highlights of the show on You Tube; if they do I'll let you know.
