I was blessed and fortunate enough to be able to return to Concord and once again dance in the Raqin'-est show of the summer. Yes, folks. I'm talkin' about We Will Raq You II!! The Bellydance Mafia family invited me back again this year to perform to a soldout show at the Old Courthouse Theatre in Concord. On the hottest day in June EVER.
Before I go ANY further, I have to get the credits for these photos out there. The group shot and the first several pics are Kenny Kivett Photography The last one is © Scalcione Photography Please go and check out both of their pages as they are uber talented at what they do!
I feel like I need to explain something first before I post the pics. I danced to My Ruin's 'Made to Measure' and I seemed to have channeled the lovely Tairrie B. No deadpan face here (though it made for some...interesting expressions)
I threw a lot of devil horns \m/ \m/ up and such but those pics are over on Tim Hays site and password protected. If you want to see 'em go like his Facebook Page.
This last one, John captured the one bit I was afraid no one would get as it was right at the end and pretty fast. I should've known not to worry as we had over a half dozen photographers working the show. If you listen to the track this ending makes PERFECT sense. That head dress was made by my other half, who spent the entire show running spotlights 3 stories up with outside temps in the triple digits. He had the hottest job in the theatre and it wasn't because of the outside heat or the nearly 300 bodies inside...it was the 50+ dancers that took the stage throughout the show. ;)
American Murder, playing with the ladies from Damhsa Gasra. It was EPIC! If you missed it you missed a hell of a show! Is it 2013 and time for WWRY III yet? (Wendy don't kill me for that LOL).
