Please help each other out and share if someone needs a costuming item.I will be at the studio all day Saturday, November 29 to help you with your planning, and of course, you are most welcome to run the sets between L2 and L3, 1:15pm - 2pm.Please plan to be at the studio and ready to perform by 7pm. Doors for friends and family open at 7, and performances start at 7:30. If you want to come early to get ready at the studio, I will be there starting 5pm.Looking forward to a deliciously fun Holiday Showcase!Anita
Thank you Anita! I'm pumped!Excited to dance with you all!
Wooo, how exciting! Looking forward to it. Thanks Anita!
Hi Anita,Yes, I can lead Hosanni: were you thinking starting off with the quartet, then circle up for an exit, or did you want a bow at the end of the first set? Just so I know to go over it this week with my students (who are Lisa Caparra and Jeannine Bamman). LA
Helloo Dancers!IMPORTANT INFORMATION, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!MaryAnn was the only dancer from Set 1 in class on Saturday, so we took the liberty of picking the set:Blessings, one trio, regular formationMaryAnn, Helen, KelliNey from Country Dance, one diagonal trio, one duetTrio: Jennifer, Kelli, HelenDuet: MaryAnn, HelenHosanni Oo, one quartet, bow, exitQuartet, lead by Leigh Anne, Arica, Lisa, JeannineRESPONDING TO LEIGH ANNE'S QUESTION ABOUT THE END OF THE FIRST SET:For Hosanni, Leigh Anne will lead her quartet for the first 40 seconds saidi section of the song.At the end of the saidi section, when Leigh Anne finishes, ALL DANCERS IN SET 1 WILL STOP PLAYING THEIR ZILS and raise their arms overhead. Chorus dancers will walk out to join the featured Hossani quartet. Here's the count:Chorus dancers will walk forward and line up for the bow -- 16 COUNTSHOLD ARMS OVERHEAD FOR 8 COUNTS (be patient and enjoy the applause!)BOW for 8 COUNTS (arms down for 4, arms up for 4)HOLD ARMS OVERHEAD FOR 16 MORE COUNTSSTART PLAYING ZILS (this is right at the beginning of the next Saidi section), TURN TO THE RIGHT, AND SHIMMY OFFSTAGE.Dancers in Set 2 were all in class on Saturday and know what they need to do. Chorus dancers for Set 2 (LeighAnne, Arica, Lisa, and Jeannine) do not need to bow. After the featured dancers in Set 2 take their bow, Set 2 dancers can circle up and exit.As mentioned before, I will be at the studio around 5 if you want to come early and prep at the studio. Let's plan to meet at 6:45 to verbally run the set one last time before you perform. Doors at 7, show starts at 7:30.See you this Sunday!Anita
Ladies, I regret to inform you that I will not be making the showcase this weekend after all. I did not get the time off that I requested from my boss, and, to top it off, I believe that my bag of bellydance clothes (at least what I bring to class so zils, shoes, skirt, cholis) was stolen out of my car when it got broken into earlier this week. Hopefully I am wrong and it is in the trunk of my car that is at the body shop! Needless to say, I hope you all have a wonderful time and I will be there in spirit! May the shimmy be with you! <3
Thank you so much Anita for the detail and working with us at L3 class last Saturday! I’m so looking forward to dancing and spending time with you all this Sunday!!!Arica, sorry to hear about your car... Hope you will find your bellydance clothes in the trunk, fingers crossed!!!
Hey, Anita-I'd be glad to fill in, if you need a substitute for Arica. Sorry about your car, Arica. Hope you find your things!
