Today is the day for the Dia De Los Muertos fashion show and The Alice, TX downtown Halloween Merchant bash. Bring your kiddos out fro the festivities. I will be contributing with an opening performance for the fashion show put together by Wedding Lace.
Did some yoga on my own, and then some great practice with Datura Online. A dancers resource for various styles of training in various dance disciplines surrounding the belly dance culture.
Definitely something good to have when you want continuous training and don’t have any teachers around you.
Just signed up for their unlimited monthly. Great to see some of these teachers again, and some of them for the first time.
Im have been wanting to learn more about Indian dance and Im excited to be doing so here.
Today I learned about Pranam from Colleen Shakti.
“Pranam is a sanskrit word for a reverential salutation or greeting. It is a gesture that all Indian dancers perform, regardless of their style of dance.”
While this video may be old, I still think it is something that everyone should experience a view of. In honor of the divine feminine, it makes perfect sense to acknowledge women in their prime moments into bringing new life into the world. It amazes me at how a trained body can withhold such movements with power and grace, especially at times when people usually say to take it easy or not do so much. Pregnant people are not immobile, they are simply growing new life. Of course, they should be careful, and not over do it, but that doesn’t mean they should stop living, stop moving, or stop dancing. Even people who are not with child should be careful with how much they do. 😉
This performance was one that made me tear up with excitement with just how beautiful the execution of the dance is. I also feel us audience incredibly lucky to be able to share such a magical moment between mother and child. Enjoy!
