I just got back to North Carolina from Los Angeles last night. I had so much fun hanging with my family and my girls. I can’t believe I’ve been belly dancing with Hannah and Leila since 2008…..!!!
Leila, Shoop and I were reminiscing about this Bollywood piece which was our first choreography together! SO CUTE! Choreography is by Heather Shoopman and Calamity Sam and Heidi also appear in this video. Back in the Se7eN & Bliss days!I always listen to MC Panjabi Radio on Pandora at work, this song always comes on and I can never remember the dang choreo. Thanks to Lynn for taking the video, maybe I can refresh my brain cells.
The Nautch Project is debuting a brand new choreography for this show and Se7eN will be bringing back the Blood Moon tornado piece in a more watery reincarnation.
Many of my favorite dancers are going to be in this show; it is really a great line-up for a great cause.

The HM157 Old Timey Nite show went on without a hitch! It was such a lovely night and I adore all of the performers. It was nice to take an evening and attempt to be present in holiday splendor without rushing around or planning ahead. It was extra special because my longtime friend (from Alemany days!), Liz Ohanesian, covered the night for the LA Weekly with photographer Shannon Cotrell. The evening was featured in a slideshow on the Weekly website. You can see the slideshow and Liz’s narration here. Below I posted some of my favorite photos. All the photos are by the lovely Shannon Cottrell.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! xoxo
I am curating my first show on Dec. 20th inside beautiful Victorian mansion, HM157, with a fantastic mix of old time music, tribal bellydance, Appalachian clogging, Gyspy fusion, storytelling, performance art, and more! This is a very important nite to me. I get to combine two things I love so very much old timey American folk music and tradition with world music and fusion bellydance. It’s very exciting!
Come join us as we create unique collaborations and celebrate the season – you don’t want to miss this special evening as we resist corporate co-option of the holidays and celebrate community love and spirit with some old timey goodness. Maybe you will get lucky under the mistletoe? Perhaps Krampus will come for a visit? Can I really restrain myself from calling a dance?
Find out on December 20th!
hope to see you there!!!

Blood Moon OZ was wonderful. Thank you so much to Unmata and Hot Pot for putting on such a remarkable event year after year. We love you soooo much. Being part of Blood Moon is a huge honor and I felt especially lucky to be able to perform with Se7en becomes twe12e in the show and with the Nautch Project at the Afterparty. How lucky can one girl get, sheesh?
Se7en relished in the whimsy and natural force of the tornado and had so much fun putting the piece together. It was a dramatically different process from last year’s anorexia piece, which obviously was a lot harder of a subject to tackle and interpret.
Getting such a rad group of SoCal ladies to represent with the tornado, we had fun blowing into town and tearing up the house.
