This past Saturday, I took the Indian Fusion workshop with Meera at the UW. It was a lot of fun and pretty intense. In fact, I’ve been limping around since yesterday because my calves are so tight. Guess I wasn’t used to the “Bollywood Hop” or the the “Bhangra Bounce”. 🙂 I would love to learn more about Indian dance, but as I’m still doing bellydance, I don’t know when I would fit that in. Plus, on Seana’s website she says she teaches Tribal style, which is open to students that have a year or more experience. Come the summer, I will have had a year’s experience. I really want to learn some Tribal!
The UW Bellydance show on Saturday night was really good. I was impressed. They almost sold out the Wisconsin Union Theater, it was so packed. I’m happy for them. There was a veil duet dance that was really beautiful. And Meera’s performance was a lot of fun too. But really, everyone did a great job.
Also, more exciting news, at least for me. The UW Dept. of Continuing Education wants to the different dance classes to do a little demo, and they asked for volunteers. So I will have my 2 minutes of fame. It’s low key, we’re not really dressing up, but we get to perform a little. I did my little routine for Leif and Rowan (this is the first time I danced for Leif) and they really liked it. It’s at the end of April, so I have some time to practice. I’m excited!
