Performing at Casbah, dedicating her performance to baby Jackson.
Thank you Vahana Bellydance and Annabelle Fifield of Annabelle's Chocolate for putting on a wonderful show last night. It had special meaning to me because the beneficiary was a dear friend’s grandson and son who has had multiple heart surgeries in his short six months of life. the Casbah Lounge, Evening of Middle Eastern Dance.
I put this together hoping to convey a certain meaning. I have been lucky enough to get the opportunity to work with an amazing dance mentor the past several months and we spent a session putting this together. I unfortunately pulled a muscle in my back a few hours before the show so I had a few minor technical errors but I think the emotion came across. The dance and music to me is about trying to find something beautiful to hold onto in hard times and how difficult that is sometimes but if we try and show up authentically for each other, even if we are imperfect we can get through a lot together.
Costume was made up of my favorite pieces. Top from Nikii/Chovihani, belt by The Verdant Muse and skirt by Melodia Designs.
