“Won’t you take me to Funkytown??”
I was at a party last night and the DJ played that song. I took it as a sign that I should go home. Funkytown, really??
It has been four whole days since I have updated and I wasn’t even on a cruise!! LOL. I am still getting used to having a job in addition to my bellydance schedule but I plan to do better on the updating. I want to see this goal through. I am so close to reaching my goal and I want to finish this right.
I didn’t blog as much but I still got my hours in and did all my workout which are definitely working. My frienemy the heartless be-otch we all call the scale let me know it’s working. I don’t hate her as much this week but she is still on watch!!
I practiced with Hareem Shar’eem on Wednesday, The Shuvani Jezebels on Thursday, Wicked Gypsy on Friday and everyone yesterday in prep for a gig we had last night.
Yesterday was a gaming convention called Con on the Cob. I taught a workshop during the day and we had a show last night. My workshop was supposed to be an hour and they cut it in half because of scheduling problems so it was 30 minutes. It was really hard to teach a choreography in a beginner class in 30 minutes because I had to cover technique of movements too. I did the best I could and we got through some of the dance. Also, a new thing for me–having the class streamed on the internet!!
Our show was supposed to be 45 minutes but it got cut to 30 because of scheduling problems. We cut 5 pieces out of the line up. It was a bit of a nightmare trying to work it all out. Also, once we got in there, the stage had mics and a giant podium up there so we had to move everything to the floor in front at the last second. I have to say, the dancers were great about all the changes and just went with it. I am so happy that all the dancers are able to go with the flow even when the situation is rough. I am very proud of everyone I work with!! Shout out to everyone who danced last night!! You made a bad situation fun!!
Also, a shout out to Gina who just had surgery and was very missed at last night’s show. Please heal quickly!! We hope to be dancing with you again soon!!!
