Car-Free Dancing

Car-Free Dancing

Here’s me teaching Mark, who organized the party over on 1st and MacDonald, a couple of things about belly dancing. He was an awesome sport!

My fellow Team-Hareemer Kathleen and I danced at a couple of the car-free block parties on Sunday and we were very well recieved.  We were dancing to music Kathleen brought, and I’d never heard it before (with the exception of Tarkhan’s Kiss song,  but we were dancing with a two-year-old girl for that one and only a handful of people noticed we both got all the shots in it), but I comported myself well.  Note to self:  When I’m not trying to choreograph with the whole troupe, messing up doesn’t matter. No one,  not even other dancers, notices!

I didn’t get to hand out as many of our teacher’s business cards as I wanted, but I got more visible in the nelighbourhood, and am approachable to all and any who want to try belly dancing with us. We were fun, approachable, and lacked the body glitter disdainful sexxxaaaay vibe that intimidates women who just want to have some fun and get some exercise.

Also, Mark here showed serious promise in the hip area. Way to go, Mark!
