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!

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!

We’re planning early for our workshop at Detroit Raqs 2013 and we need YOUR help!  Please take this short survey, so we can get a clearer idea of what we should plan to teach this coming May.

Thank you bunches!

Friday nights…

We had a lot of fun–it was great being back in costume and among a huge crowd of people with lots of familiar faces…and some new and unfamiliar ones, too.

WE certainly didn’t injure or traumatize anyone, either…not that we can actually say there were no casualties…it’s just that in this instance, we have nothing to do with it. For reals.

Now it’s time to prep for Carnival Mayhem in September and our big month of October with our awesome friends Boheme and the Lunatic Vagabonds…

Stay tuned…*eyebrow waggle*

Self portrait...so serious.
