Special news for class this week~

Hello hello! I hope you’re all enjoying a glorious summer evening as I write to you from beneath this amazing full moon. It was actually a BLUE MOON yesterday, which, I just learned from a dear friend, is actually the 3rd full moon of a season. It is the perfect time to be dancing Yankadi and Makru, as these 2 dances of the Susu people of Guinea were traditionally danced at night, under the full moon. We have one more week to celebrate these beautiful dances, so come join in the sultry and celebrational groove!

I am excited to share that our talented community member, Alison Green-Parsons, will be bringing along her lovely hand-made journals and jewelry for everyone to peruse this week before & after class. I encourage everyone to bring a little extra cash, as her wares are difficult to resist… They make great gifts too!

Also, next week’s class (8/29/13) we’ll have guest teacher, Nyama McCarthy-Brown, back to the studio. For those of you who’ve danced with her before you know what fun is in store, and for those of you who haven’t… well, lucky you! I will be on my residency at Goddard College in the mountains of VT, and you will be in good hands. Your pre-purchased class cards will apply, so let nothing hold you back from experiencing a new teacher! Enjoy!

…Hope to see you all this week on the dance floor…
