Being home! yeah……so great to be home, get reconnected with myself, my man, my dogs, my bed! and time to look at photos and reflect on the last whirlwind of dance days…
I got home yesterday from my Orlando and Milwaukee dance tour! It was amazing…two weeks of full on dance, incredible workshops in both places, performances in both places, laughter, and more dance, including the intensives, Collective Soul and Teacher Training Level One!
Yea Leize…congrats my lovely dancing sister, for your hard work, commitment to Tribal Style, determination, and here’s to your dreams!
Many thanks to Lacey Sanchez of Florida Tribal and her wonderful man, Alex, and all the people who helped out in Orlando, and to Karen Hunt for joining me in Florida with Caravan Soul Collective Dancers, Toni and Sherry! That was a hoot!
and Amanda Richardson and Leize Averill of Rakhshanda Tribal, in Milwaukee (and GCDC) for each putting on an awesome event!
the girls were having fun in their new Tshirts! (yes you can get them on my website in the shopping pages…)
there will be some video clips and more photos coming…
meanwhile, the internet forces kept working and my Tribal Bellydance Online Class #2 is up and ready for you!
I am soooo happy about these… (can you hear the whistles and zaghareets inserted here!)
You gotta dance with us! woo hoo… this one was filmed in Flagstaff with the gorgeous gals, Carol and Hilary. It was a beautiful setting, with some thunder, snakes and deer in the distance, several gusts of wind, and us…I’ve gotten great feedback from the first series, and yes, once you buy any of them, they are yours to continue using, no monthly fees, no expiration dates, just dance on my friends! So take me and the GC dancers home with you, and let’s get that tribal groove on…
*and there was still a little time to relax and visit my family’s cottage on the sweetest little lake on a glorious late summer day…ah, bliss…
enjoy your weekend, make it brilliant and full of love…
