Why I love October

Crisp air, Apple season, gratitude, reflection, samhain. And this October there’s more:

Funkabelly Picante! at Lula Lounge this Thursday. In between checking out the amazing dancers and gypsy band Nomadica, come visit the marketplace in the glass room. Photobooth, tarot readings, handmade drums and one of a kind jewelry by Twisted Jewels…see you there!


Serpentina at the Johnny Hollow show                  


Bazaar of the Bizarre

Amon Tobin concert. Its hard to believe that I’ve never seen this guy live. Now I will.

St Mikes fundraiser. Victoria and I will dance, accompanied by Jaash on drums for this event that raises money to send doctors and surgeons to the Phillipines to provide free medical care.

Zombie Walk is October 22nd…anyone up for a zombie bellydancer contingent??

Suma Break N Enter Halloween (Oct 29th) party. I’ll be at the door, come say hi.

The last PS Kensington is on Sunday October 30th. Im going to watch this time and celebrate being one day away from Halloween

Dance expeditions Sunday October 16th will feature some of our lovely local bellydance talnet. Expect fusion.

Sugar Shakers Halloween dance sessions: October 31st, join Sugar Shakers for a night of solo jazz class, partner dance then a field trip to share our Halloween sweetness with the city

Oh I can’t forget to mention that Moonlight Tribe during Nuit Blanche had a great turnout. Featuring lots of local troupes, soloists and musical guest Amy’s Arms, it was the bellydance hot spot of the night. I particularly enjoyed being reminded how much I love Murcof, thanks to the musical tastes of Lavish.

If I had been out and about that night I would have checked out the Soul Train room at the Gladstone…as soon as you walk trough the door everyone cheered and you found yourself in the soul train line. Do you close the door and run away or take your spot on the dancefloor? I know what I would do!

I hope that everyone is enjoying this harvest time of year with abundant love of family and friends. I leave you with some awesome sixties bollywood…thanks to Juvia!
