No Fundamentals Tonight, Summer Schedule, Show Review

Fundamentals class cancelled tonight. It would have been our last Sunday class before moving to the summer schedule. Enjoy a couple weeks off drilling to recharge.

I’m just finalizing details on a venue for summer classes and am looking to start again the second week of July. I’ll post an update as soon as I have everything firmed up.

The Arabian Fantasy Belly Dance Show at the Shu-Box theater went well last night. There was a really good turnout and the show seemed to run fairly smoothly. I really like this new venue as it seems quite intimate despite having a large stage and seating just over a hundred people. The dressing rooms are professional and there was even a lounge area. Having the audience on three sides was slightly disorienting at times though. I felt like Br’Issah had a good performance overall but I somehow always find something that can be improved.

Show season is now over and it’s back to training and creating. Need to build strength, refine movements, and start on the search for new music to create next year’s choreographies. Join me!
