   Yowza, a VERY busy Saturday – I joined Halyma’s Belly Dancing For Fun group, and members of the Bollywood For Fun group, to cheer on fabulous female runners as they raced a short course at the Aviation Museum; followed by a rousing children’s run, and performance demo indoors, at the annual event, Emilie’s Run.   Afterwards, I raced home to change, and zoomed downtown to take part in a workshop, hosted by the lovely Eurika, called Urban Belly Dance Fusion.  This workshop was taught by a professional American dancer named Lisa Zahiya; a beautiful performer/instructor,  who has appeared in the TV series, Project Bellydance, and other reality shows.   www.lisazahiya.com (Find her on Youtube)  This was a VERY tough two-hour class for me, as a “mature” dancer…I had to step out of my comfort zone, and try to keep up with ladies half my age; learning movements like pops, locks, hip-hop-swagger, and a short slammin’ choreography to the music of Justin Timberlake’s, Bringin’ Sexy Back.  I LOVED IT!!   It’s always great to learn new stuff, and not be afraid to try.  Despite all the aches and pains afterwards, totally worth it!DanceGalBlue2

  1. I think it’s so important that all of us dancers of all ages keep at it – the workshops, the volunteer events, the classes, the shows, they all serve to bring forth our creativity and spirit in ways that bring balance to the rest of our lives – for me at least! And it was a wonderful dance weekend!! See you at the next event!
