That 70s Show

Yesterday I had a pretty unusual show - it was a blacklight / glow light show for kids at a summer camp at Club Sport in Fremont. The summer camp theme was centered around the decades of the 20th century, and for a blacklight show, I was assigned the 1970s.

What fun it was! I got to dance to great …

Tissu at the lake

I've been up at the lake the last couple of days and it's been lovely. We strung the tissu between two trees and did lots of photographing.. it's a lovely place to hang out. I haven't been motivated to actually practice any choreography, which is becoming a more pressing problem as faerieworlds is i…

This is the second year we've performed at VEISHEA and this year the weather, despite forecast…

San Francisco State AIDS Awareness Day

Today we're doing a fire show at San Francisco State University for their AIDS awareness day.  We've performed at this event the last 2 years as well and it's always a lot of fun.  The student organizers do a really great job, and despite the bright sun (never a fire show's best friend!) the crowd a…

Today I did a pho…

Fire in the Air

In addition to playing with fire, I'm an aspiring aerialist. What can I say, I love being upside down.. I'm working on a routine that complements my fiery side up on the aerial tissu and this afternoon I made a new costume and

Synchronicity

Last night we did a fire show for a 30th birthday party in Walnut Creek (and what a beautiful night it was).  KT and I had a great time - we did our Belly Dance show which is one of our favorites but hasn't been booked a lot lately (people seem to like Belly Dance in the early summer for some reason…

This was our second time doing this event and we *love* the crowds at SJSU - college students are so much fun to perform for, and this event is really well organized and staf…

One of the highlights was that I got to teach a fire eating class to a student who flew down from New Jersey to le…

New Year's Eve

We had a great show on New Year's Eve with Blue Sky Events up in Lake Tahoe.  It was a 6-dancer show with a fire & ice theme, and it was great to work with such a big group of dancers because we could really heat the place up (and brrrr.. that was pretty important during winter up in Tahoe!)
T…
