Another great night at Fullsteam Brewery last night and it was packed!!!! What a great crowd and lots of dogs! That was the first time I have seen so many dogs there. LOL. I guess they like beer and bellydancers and live music too. I love my furry friends too!
So my plans unfortunately changed on the car ride there. I had planned to dance to one of Andrew’s cool more dark, tribalesque sounding songs, but then he informed me that he hadn’t practiced it and could not play it. “What do you mean you can’t, we had already discussed it, and you told me to do it for Fullsteam”! so I assumed that it was agreed. How soon people forget things. Sigh. I had even wore my more “tribal looking” stuff. LOL. Well as Tribal as a Cabaret dancer can get. Well half tribal maybe. You can never take the glitz and glam out of the American Cab dancer!!!!
So 10 minutes before showtime I picked “Mariam Mariamti”. I still loved it. There’s the story.
Yesterday was the Raleigh Drum Circles 9th Anniversary. I have been invited to dance at this party for quite a while now and it is always so much fun!!! All the performances were outstanding. This year we were able to not only have live drumming, but incorporate one of my favorite melodic Middle Eastern instruments, the Oud. Many thanks to Brian Beaman and Andrew Shakinovsky of the Lost Nomads for providing live Middle Eastern music for this performance.
This past weekend, I traveled to Fayetteville for a show featuring the wonderful and talented Ahava. She is a beautiful dancer. The show was alot of fun and it was great to see my friends down there and meet some new people. I did a new wings dance, that I am hoping to teach a choreography to eventually.
