Signs of Spring

Thia's Springfest was held on Saturday, and Desert Gypsy Dance Company performed at high noon, filling the house with energy and color. And the crowd went wild!

Today's Deseret News featured a picture of one of our dance company dancers (Rani) in an article about yesterday's Belly Dance event. Her picture is left, and the article can be read here. The Deseret News picture slide show can be seen here.

Sherry (Watara?) posted pictures and music on her blog here. Two of the dancers performed with knee braces (one a result of a volleyball game gone bad and the other a slip and fall on the ice). Additionally, several dance company members are in various stages of pregnancy.

There is nothing quite like the excitement of a performance well done--especially after all of the hard work we have put into it.

On Friday evening, at the American Fork Junior High School Desert Gypsy Dance company will perform at a free recital of the belly dance students who have been taking classes in Utah County, mostly through the community education program. Ocassionally, hula and other ethnic dance students will also perform the materials they have learned in their past class series. It is a fun, family friendly, cultural event for all ages.
