Greetings! November is quite a crazy busy month for me! Let's see...well, first off we have SHADOWDANCE. I am really excited about this show! The venue is the Oakland Metro, which is rad because I have already danced on that stage twice and feel quite comfortable there. I will say this: the piece I am performing is the most personal dance I have ever choreographed. It comes straight from the center of my heart.
November 22nd I have another show at the fabulous Hubba Hubba Revue at The Uptown. I love this gig. Jim and pals are the coolest, most laid back people to work with, ever.
November 28th I am privileged to dance with Ariellah and Nayun of Deshret Dance Company in Berkeley. I will perform a solo along with many other uniquely amazing dancers.
Also, for the month of November, the lovely Frederique is on tour in Europe and she asked me to sub for her. YAY! I am subbing her on-going beginning and advanced ATS belly dance classes at Temescal Arts Center on Thursday nights. The advanced class is currently closed to the public, but the beginning class is open to everybody so come on down! Details here. I recently had a private lesson with Fred, and it was definitely worth it, as always. I am so happy and grateful to be subbing her class.
Last but not least, my new flyers are here! They are super fantastic. In case you are wondering, the woman posing goth-like on the front of the flyer is Ruth St. Denis, a dancing hero of mine. For more gorgeous, awe-inspiring pictures of her, go here. The season is fall and my days are filled with downloading electronic music from obscure British djs, teaching private lessons in the morning, and working at the library in the afternoon. Such is my life. It is good.
p.s. Dancers: if you would like beautiful flyers at a very reasonable price, talk to my friend Mikey. He will hook you up. Check out his website.
This is the place where I track future performances and announce updates in the Blackhoodygrrl world. There is also bits of poetry, musings and eye candy, always keeping with the theme of Sacred Dance.
