I mean you slave away to come up with a compelling one page of copy and then send it out into the ether hoping for the best. BUT, this time I have discovered Flirtitly Rites was actually posted on the OPB.org Arts & Life section, The Mercury Calendar, AND the dance section of Willamette Week. Happy Dance!
Tickets still available but going quickly! Visit www.boxofficetickets.com to buy tickets in advance.
The Silent Woman to the Free Speaking Woman
How she sings, sings, sings.
Like fountain water springs
From her throat,
Like the sound of a flute.
How she talks, talks, talks.
Obstruct her powers,
When she talks.
No sword has she, no lance.
She cuts with her smile
And razes with her speech,
Then sticks in her flag.
You shall rule
Sceptre-less and crownless.
Inspire all your dumb sisters
With your Muse.
Beckon us to the Spoken Word
Rule of Silence
This tortured land.
9 Ladies Dance Theatre will be performing as a group and Bianca will also be performing a solo on May 18 as part of the NW Choreographers Showcase at Concordia University.
Also, save the date for our next production on June 23!
So excited for this Sunday evening and the fundraiser for Jamballah NW at Hamburger Mary’s Portland! https://www.facebook.com/events/338558839509770/

We’ll have tickets to bellydance shows, cultural spots like the Lan Su Chinese Garden and Portland Art Museum, massage gift certificates, Island Mana wine, Cascade Brewing beer, warm and fuzzy scarves, bath salts, hair accessories, pin-up art, and SO MUCH MORE!
You can also get your hair sparkly with Sera’s Fairy Hair, or have your picture taken with our “not-so-Easter bunny” AND there will be performances by Jewels, Bianca Francesca, and Ashley Lopez.

A rare Portland visit from the artistic director of Alchemy Dance Theater in NYC and Gypsy Caravan alumna! This afternoon of workshops is a rich introduction to Sarah’s current process, technique, and vocabulary.
One of the most powerful truths about being an artist is that we are all forever students. There’s always a way to do something better; a new technique or skill to master; a new way of sharing the story in our hearts. And in the world of dance there are so many chances and opportunities to do just that but one of the unique things about attending a festival is that it is more than taking classes, it is the chance to collaborate, commiserate and the chance to ride the energy of fellow attendees like a wave.
Jamballah NW seeks to be that kind of festival. It is more than the sum of its classes (although there are some great ones) it is about bringing together established artists, budding artists, and enthusiasts. It is the chance to step outside your comfort zone and try a style of movement you don’t normally take. Or perhaps, taking a style you know well from a different instructor to hear how they approach the dance. Or, even just getting together with the tribe and making new friends.
I hope you’ll consider joining us this August. Registration is now open.
