“Just get dancy. What part of party don’t you understand.”
So I have had some practicing, classes, and a dance gig since my last update. The main thing I have been lacking is the updating. I will work on that. In the meantime, I will tell you the most interesting stuff:
Our gig on Saturday was at the Harvest Moon Festival. It was all in daylight, however, because it ended at 5 PM. The person running it wanted fire though so we danced with fire. It fit the theme. Fire looks better at night but it works just fine during the day too. We were dancing with fire by the road because the person in charge wanted the cars to see. It worked. They saw us. They honked and glared in a “Is that fire??” kind of way.
We did our regular bellydance set away from the road and more inside the festival but no matter where we dance one thing was always the same–there was mud!! That is easily the muddiest gig I have ever been a part of. It was a swamp and tough to dance in but we powered through and no acted like a diva about it. We did our thing in the mud and then we left but not before I bought the coolest pants from the tie-dye vendor!! Score!!
Another thing is that I am still doing my workout program. It is big on the weight lifting which I have never done before. This has me wondering if my body is going to change into something I won’t know what to do with. I have never in my life had muscles. Will I all of a sudden become strong?? It will be fun to see if I can. I am going to keep going!!
