What a fantastic weekend we all had dancing, eating, hot tubbing, writing, dancing, and more dancing. A full and intimate house of 50 gals, of all ages, and dance styles, but with tribal as the revolving word and style over the weekend. I was honored to have Dulcinea Myers-Newcomb, Gypsy Caravan dancer and teacher as well as founder of the Gemini Project, a modern bellydance troupe, to share the activities with me (as well as her in-womb baby!), along with the delicious Carol Vance, also from Gypsy Caravan, and the little spitfire Lynea Gillen, to teach yoga and african tribal. I got many of the dancers writing and journaling throughout the weekend, my passion! and dancing for several hours everyday, with some downtime for soaking, napping, getting massages, and shall we talk about the great vegetarian food 3 meals a day (and no dishes to do!) The weather was lovely, the mountain countryside gorgeous, and the girls were in rare form, meeting and welcoming the newbies (as there are about 3/4 of the dancers who return every year). We had many of the Collective Soul dancers join the retreat, from Australia, Scotland, Florida, New Jersey, Arizona, and around the Pac NW.
