TCBBA Virtual Summer Workshop Series Review
By Cindy Moore
This year as a member of TCBBA I had the pleasure of attending virtual workshops as well as teaching one of them. As a student of dance I always welcome a variety of teachers and dance styles and elements to collect and put in my dancer tool belt, and the workshops offered exactly that. Within the first 15 minutes of Paula Grace’s skirt technique workshop I realized OMG I have been dancing with the wrong skirt all this time no wonder I feel like I am a giant and maybe need to pull my skirt up Urkle style to hold my hands up all the way. Paula has so much knowledge and broke all of the skirt work down beautifully. Melody Calvert has always been the sword goddess in our membership group and it was great to have her break down her secrets and tips on the sword. I have always followed her lead with many things belly dance she knows her stuff. I also had the pleasure of teaching fan veil which I really love. It was a great opportunity and I was honored to share. I hope that everyone enjoyed the workshops and continues to use them whenever they want. This year has been a time of change but when it comes to dance some things never change. Whether it is in a crowd or in the privacy of your space, Dance is expression, Dance is Joy. I hope we have more opportunities to do workshops among each other again, it was a wonderful experience and retreat from the stresses of the year.
