Community Spirit, City of Mesa Talent Show November 13, 2010

What a fun time we had last night performing at the Community Spirit show at the Mesa Amphitheater.  We were one of five acts that night raising money for Hawthorne Elementary School in Mesa. 

This was the 2nd annual talent show put on by the City of Mesa.  This year you did not need to be a City employee they opened it up to any one in the community. 

We went on 2nd and performed in front of the stage on the cheerleaders mat which was very interesting when it came to turns :-)  We did 3 numbers starting out with candles, than Pentaphobe and ending with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.

We watched the rest of the show before heading over to Grandma's Kitchen to dance some more.

Thank you everyone for volunteering your time to help raise money and congrats to Melissa for winning 2 door prizes and I also one a door prize, dinner at BJ's Restaurant!

Below are photos of us back stage before we went on.  Thanks to the cheerleader that took the group shot!

State Fair October 2010

On Saturday October 30, 2010 thirteen of us performed at the State Fair and had a blast.  We opened the fair at 10 in the morning and performed for an hour. 

Below is a group photo before we went on taken by the sound guy.




After the fair I rushed home to get ready to teach a basic belly dance workshop at Simplicity Yoga in Mesa.  I had 10 students and I taught them basic moves and a beginning drum solo dance.  This group was so much fun I can't wait to go back and teach another workshop.

Below is a photo after the workshop.



We have more events coming up this weekend at the block party on Main Street in downtown Mesa and the City of Mesa Talent Show the next night at the Mesa Amphitheater and after this show off to Desert Mirage at Grandma's Kitchen located on Main and Country Club. 

Hope to see you at one of the many events coming up through the end of the year.
