My belated end of year show...in Ballet and Belly Dancing!
Hello my lovely darlings! Its been so excitingly busy lately…but I have certainly missed you and can't wait till I can tell you darlings more about my new venture. I have just returned jetlagged from Seattle and have a few travel posts as well as Cheongsam (Qipao) reviews in the pipe-line....and not to forget the impending 'Shine Walk' on a September Saturday night still to do. Though for now I thought it might be nice to do a little feature of my very belated end of year show; which includers those of summer 2013 to the more recent summer 2014. Some of you darlings might know that I have been taking a beginner’s ballet class for a while now and an intermediate belly dancing class too. So at the end of year show at Brady Arts Centre, a community theatre where family and friends of the dance students are invited to watch the little performance, I participated in both ballet and belly dancing. So let's start by catching up with the year before....
Now fast forward to summer 2014....can you spot any difference? Perhaps not visible to the naked eye but I did somehow feel an improvement and even enjoyed performing our humorous routine! I must say this year’s show has been the trickiest, as not only the ballet routine was much harder in focusing on individual technique without the help of a steady barre bar, I also had to remember a rather hard belly dancing routine with a mini solo section! Of course I wobble a little when doing the battement developpe like an utter novice (who has not taken several terms of beginner's ballet classes), but I did overcome the internal shakiness which is something in itself. In loving support, my wonderful girlies decided to come for the show and we went for a fun dinner at an American vintage inspired bowl place in Brick Lane afterwards. To me, having them there just for the show already meant a lot and I was so happy to see them…so it was a fabulous summer dream weekend indeed!
Must confess this post should have been published much much sooner and perhaps I have missed dancing through a busy past few months more than I realised. As things lay excitingly uncertain I am unsure if I will be able to join the coming term's dance classes, though I certainly do miss them, but I hope it will be a temporary sacrifice that will bring an even better tomorrow for me as well as others. Enough rambling for now, more excitement is to come as next week I shall reveal the brilliant Qipao Lover number 2.....who will be Miss September I hear you roar? Well...stay tuned till then, in the meantime if I should see you at the special '100 Dresses' Collectif evening next Sunday, please do stop me for a chat. With sunshine wishes I hope you will have an absolutely fabulous weekend my darlings!
