With greatest thanks I am entering the last few days before heading out to What the Festival to teach two bellydance workshops: shake/shimmy/stretch for all shapes/styles/sizes. It's been easy for me to talk it up because I'm so genuinely excited and honored to have this opportunity! For all of my various interests and hobbies, I've found it hard to define myself and my niche in this very densely-packed and talented PacNW dance community... except that this convergence of elements perfectly encapsulates the things that I love and the effort and discipline that I've cultivated over the last few years. I'll be at a large, well-produced, "framily"-run festival with a diverse range of exceptionally awesome music, dynamic art, amongst other fabulously talented performer teachers, showing anyone who is willing to join me, that dance is both mysterious and within reach -- no matter how long or short your arms are.
Any music out there really floating your boat? Something that would make you shimmy with glee if you heard it during my workshop at WTFestival!? Send me your requests now!
