A few pertinent numbers



  • 1 Day until Mosaic, the belly dance fusion show in which I’ll be performing with my belly dance troupe!
  • 3 group numbers I’ll be dancing in with the gorgeous ladies of Invoketress;
  • 9 guest performers/groups gracing us with their presence tomorrow;
  • 3:24 minutes of solo I’ve choreographed to a well-known pop song (hint: I’ll be wearing a skirt that’s short and a jacket that’s long);
  • 4 costumes I assembled today (with more accessories than I bothered to count);
  • 10 pretend candles I will be sticking to my shamadan (candelabra) to wear on my head (fire code prohibits actual candles in the theatre);
  • 14 months we’ve been preparing for the show (if you count back to the beginning of the first piece we learned);
  • 2 family members who will be backstage with me (1 daughter to feed between numbers, 1 Auntie Em to be her caretaker the rest of the time);
  • 7 (at least!) different dance styles fused with bellydance to be performed, including tribal, modern, ballet, jazz, Irish, Tunisian, and burlesque;
  • 65 (approximately) tickets left!

It’s gonna be FUN, people!

    See you backstage…although I’ll be the one in considerably different costumes, hair and makeup while we perform Signin’ In the Rain on the other stage….Three shows to go – two Saturday, one Sunday! I’ll be waiting to see that gorgeous girl in real life backstage!
    Break a Leg!

    What a complete hoot to get greetings and encouragement from Beth L at the other end of the country! She is right on, too!
