Wonderful Recital and Busy Week

This has been, and is going to be, such a busy week I can hardly keep my head on straight. Most important was our recital on Sunday. I am so proud of my students! We did five choreographies, and even though some of them had not been in class for all of the dances (we learn a new one each session) they all wanted to dance to all of the songs and took the time to learn them on their own! This was a first recital for most of the ladies and they did a wonderful job. I can hardly get over it. We still have one wrap-up class this Saturday morning before we break for the summer. I’ll miss you gals so much between now and September!

Last Saturday night was the monthly Uni-T Ball, which was so much fun, as ever. Bad Weather Burlesque has a lot going on, including the Cruisin’ Broadway show at the Aquarium on Thursday night. Stop by our photo booth on Broadway. We’re trying to raise some cash so we can put on even more amazing shows for you. And then we are opening for Lee Rocker at the grand opening of Sickie’s Garage at the Hub on Friday night.  You’ll get to see some brand new acts from myself and other talented performers, so come on out, at least one of those nights! We have one heck of a lineup scheduled.

And if you are a bellydancer, teacher, student, musician, artist, costumer or fan please check out the new Facebook group Red River Raks. I just put it together, moments before typing this post. I would really like to get everyone together so we can find out what other dancers are doing or want to do. I would like this to be a resource – if you are looking for a dancer to perform, a drummer to accompany, someone to form a troupe with, someone to do your henna tattoos, etc, please post here.

For you fans in the Grand Forks area, The Lovely Dozen are performing at the Grand Cities Art Fest at 2pm. I won’t be able to make it myself, so you’d better go enjoy it for me.

What’s next? A nap, I think.
