Dance Update!

This really happened. I quit. After 3 amazing years with TribalTique Denver (aka now Vespertina Dance Project) under the direction of the amazing Molly McClellan (following 1 year with Tribe Nawaar and 2 years with Elizabeth Ashner) – after 7 years of gradually narrowing my focus and making sacrifices to hone a craft, be an … Continue reading

It’s been a while…

Wow. Just wow. I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since JANUARY. There’s a good reason for that. It’s called the “busy season” in my little Tribal Belly Dance World.  This all happened (plus a few more shows I haven’t mentioned), involving rehearsals and costuming for, on average, 6 days a week for 5 months: This … Continue reading

After a few days of more careful … Continue reading

When was the last time you failed at one of your belly dance pursuits? You haven’t lately? That’s too bad. If you have, good for you. Last week I was listening to an episode of The Accidental Creative and this topic really hit home. Failure is…
