I’ve been invited to a dancers festival, but that there’s things to consider. Firstly, that it’s a bit of a jaunt away in the car and would mean an overnight stop. Only there’s a package of attending, that I’m not keen on being the fussy veggie during meals and sharing accommodation. Not sure I want to do the dance workshops either, but love the idea of seeing international headliners and take part in the hafla. Still, I’m thinking about it.
On the subject, I wonder why it is, that many belly dancers I know seem to live a double life. Several are like myself, in that they wear clothes as dull as ditch water when not dancing and are active environmentalists. That they’re on one hand being willing to get dirty and roll their sleeves up, but in dance they are the epitome of ephemeral rainbows of sparkle. Yes, I’m thinking about going.
