Brief reflections (a post by Domh)

Always learning.

As I try to reclaim the parts of my brain that melted and dribbled onto the floor, I note every ache and twinge from the strenuousness of the weekend.

I am so grateful for the family I’ve acquired through belly dance.  When you host someone that you know you like, but then actually get to spend quality time talking with them and really getting to know them?  I am awed by my people.

Normally I cringe when I know company is coming, as I am notoriously private about the inner sanctum that is my home…but I absolutely adore and look forward to having my dance peeps in my cave.  They fill the walls with laughter, impropriety, and conversation that really makes you stop and give serious thought to things you hadn’t even considered before.

Putting together a group choreography long-distance?  Any  other group, I would have said, “No way!”…but us?  Psssshhh!!!  We rocked the eff out of that!

I can safely speak for Kat and myself when I say, from the bottom of our leafy hearts, THANK YOU.  Thank you to our “Fambly” for making the northern journey and supporting us.  We adore and cherish each and every one of you.

DUO!

Coming up in May…

Detroit Raqs 2013 is fast approaching…

http://detroitraqs.com/Home.html

We’ll be teaching a workshop based on some of our favorite sticky, slow movements and combinations…while attempting to break them down and explain the muscle movement and mechanics that go into each fluid motion.

Hope to see you there….register here:

As always…we love to hear from you. If you have questions, comments or requests…contact us!

Mwah!

Okay, now the real fun begins!

Good morning, lovelies.

This whole putting an event together business has been quite the learning experience.  *chuckles*

While we in no way procrastinated on this baby, we still could have started the planning even further back than we did–which boggles the mind, because I (Domh) worried we were starting too early!  Not so much.

A few key items:

  • Early pricing is over, it’s gone up slightly now to $40/workshop or $70/both.
  • The venue is at a school, so it is a family-appropriate show–no nekkideness or cursing–some of the school staff may be present for this event!
  • Tickets are on sale now, $15 in advance or $18 at the door.
  • We will be selling raffle tickets ($1/ticket, $5 for 6, etc) with several fun prizes donated from a few local businesses and artisans, as well as dear friends and family.
  • There may be a silent auction for a few art pieces and some other items, but that is still TBA.
  • Showcase participants must be registered for at least one workshop or make a donation for the raffle or silent auction.

We are super excited about this…getting everyone up to Traverse City for a change, and of course having the incomparable Na’imah here to teach us awesome things.  ‘Cause you know we’re not-so-in-the-closet Bollywood geeks!

As always, if you have questions about anything, don’t hesitate to e-mail us at raksincendia@gmail.com.

Mu-wah!

Happy New Year

Good day, lovelies–

We just wanted to wish everyone a safe (but fun!) and happy New Year’s.

2012 was great…thanks to all of you guys that brought love and enrichment to it.  We very much look forward to the big things coming in 2013 and sharing it with everyone in our ever-expanding dance family!

🙂

Big love and hugs all around,

Domh & Kat
