*(9/28) ASALA'S FUN BEGINS JUST AS THE CLOCK HITS MIDNIGHT...A LOT...
Going back into my younger days (a rarity now that I'm nearing the Big 5-0), had a chance to go on ''Oasis Avebue'', aka walk to the ATLAS Performing Arts Center last Saturday night to watch bellydance performances as part of an all-night city-wide arts celebration of DC, courtesy of ASALA, Shahzadi (originally from Argentina, who also performs with Jillina's Bellydance Evolution tours) and Egyptian folk dance artist Mohammed Ali, and Sonia Maria with tribal fusion as well. Lasting into nearly 2am, I actually left the event and headed straight to work immediately afterwards...and survived, lolol! :)~ The DC darling wearing sparkling green displayed her array of talents, which if you go to my Instagram page can see both pics and a couple clips of her in action, as well as everyone else who participated...
======================================================================================
*(9/28) ZAGHAREETS FOR GREEK BELLYDANCERS...AND THEIR DAUGHTERS WHO FOLLOWS IN THEIR
            FOOTSTEPS (AND HIPDROPS)... ;)
If you're from the state of Ohio, you're well aware of the presence in the bellydance community that MARIAH has. Now, she's in the glorious position as a dancer and mommy to see her budding joy, SIENNA, who just graduated from high school, attempt to follow in her professional footsteps. Her poise, style and grace is patented of that of Mariah, and you can see and feel her energetic vibes while on stage. She is a name to follow in the years to come, to represent a new generation of bellydancers following in their mother's journeys. Opa, Sienna!!

*(9/28) GOOD NEWS FROM A DISTANCE FOR OUR BONITA BELLIES IN THE D.C. AREA
One by one, thankful feelings across the DMV are being felt, as well as bellydancers and others who are Puerto Rican as they slowly (but surely) are getting good news on family members, who are still reeling from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, as the entire island nation tries to deal with the still remaining deluge of water she left behind from the iconic storm surge that was P.R.'s worst natural disaster in almost a century.
Relief efforts are now just starting to flow in at an accelerated rate from all over the world, yet there are still areas decimated that are unreachable at this time. There has been a serious plea for distilled and drinking water for many, as many infrastructure and water operations are unusable, and will be for quite some time in some areas. Generators are still in need, as communications and standard electrical operations are also knocked out indefinitely. Our thoughts and prayers continues for those there as well as all the other isles that were equally hit by both Irma and Jose....
=======================================================================================
*(10/26) DMV BELLYDANCERS ARE STILL HELPING OUT THEIR OWN BACK IN PUERTO RICO...
While the situations are improving as trickling aid continues from the trump administration, Puerto Rico is still only 1/4th to full electric capacity since Hurricane Maria's wrath battered the island just a few weeks ago. There are still roads down and impassable on foot to connect to other areas within to get aid into needed areas, and forecasted days of rains coming through here and there, makes illness and disease breakouts even worse situational scenarios to take place as the year comes to a close.
Northern VA bellydancer ODALYS is holding a benefit, ''Shimmies for Puerto Rico'' at the Epicure Cafe on 11/12 in Fairfax. Numerous events and benefit haflas will continue to be forthcoming. Continue to not only send prayers and any donations that can be made to various local and national relief efforts, but continue to keep a thumb on your local senator or governor and make sure the Trump administration doesn't lighten up on aid and hurricane damage control until the entire island is 100% back up and running...
=======================================================================================
*(10/26) THE ''RAVENS NIGHT'' CURSE IS NOW RIDING BRANDON;S BACK, GIVING THE 400 LB. GORILLA A NEEDED BREAK
Unfortunately, I missed the NoVA extravaganza put on by BELLADONNA and KEN VEGAS held this past Saturday (due to a head cold and lingering bronchitis issue). But, early pics from the performers showed it was an epic experience, based on experimenting with the unknown with the Ghosts of La Belle Epoque theme.
Sharing the stage (and a chance to rumble through their pages on Facebook for photos and yummy pics) were: Ananda (TN), Brenna Crowley (NY), Dalgali (DC Area), Irina Akulenko of BellyQueen (NYC), Jenna Shear (VA), The Lunachix featuring Jo Boring (NY), Maia Alexandra (NY), '"Stomachs of Steel'' members Maria and Christine Hamer (PA), Rosa Noreen (ME), SuperKate (NY, who ironically missed last year's RN due to illness) and Maharal (RVA), with special guest Tyler Fire (WV)...
======================================================================================
*(10/26) RKB CONTINUES TO GET INTO THE SAHARA HOLIDAY SPIRIT IN TENLEYTOWN...
Members of Sahara Dance were part of the all-night art experience throughout DC that I was a part of a few weeks back on H Street with ASALA. back on the 14th, they had a fall hafla featuring RVA's TWILA JANE (formerly known as Khalima) and special guest DELLANEIRA (Philly), with many of the studio's students and faculty joining in (which, of course, I missed dealing with work-related aches and pains, ugh.) You can enjoy some of the minute quickies of the hafla on their Instagram page and enjoy pics taken courtesy of JS ALMONTE PRODUCTIONS PHOTOS by clicking HERE...
======================================================================================
*(10/26) BELLYDANCERS JOIN ACTRESSES AND OTHER WOMAN GLOBALLY SPEAKING OUT ON SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND ABUSE
The phenomenon that has been the #MeToo hashtag, started by Alyssa MIlano and spread like wildfire, engulfing Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the past couple weeks and leading a tsunami of confessions of male abuse towards women that has shaken the very core of workplace relations, many of them coming from incidents decades ago and was held in silence due to intimidation and fears of those who many still are in vicinity with and of. Many folks will remain silent until those who did what they di or are still doing to them pass away and finally feel free from their strangleholds.
It should also be mentioned it has happened to many men in the workplace, manipulated by other men (yet to hear of manipulations by women...yet...) and people in ''power positions'' within Hollywood as well.
One of the biggest confessions has been by actor/musician Corey Feldman, who stated he and his late best friend (Corey Haim) were abused in their acting youth years. He is planning a campaign thru IndiGoGo to out many of these folks, related by a Twitter post on his page, saying he has at least six names to start with, including someone with powerful placement in the Hollywood elite.
Winding it back some, we are aware of the levels of abuse (and many that has been hidden and kept on the downlow by many within bellydance communities) by bellydancers and their employers over the years (the biggest one that I know are the ''changing room'' trickerations where some within management uses double mirrors to spy on and watch certain dancers change during their gigs). Everyone remembers the actions just a few years ago, on Facebook no doubt, that led to Kajira Djoumahnna putting an end to Tribal Fest after a lengthy existence, still fresh for many in NorCal.
The major question is: where will this lead to down the road and will these people get as equally exposed as those in Hollywood? Only time will tell, but at least there's an initial crack opened in that door to make it happen, and it's a nice start. ANY abuse, by a man or a woman, to another cannot be tolerated, PERIOD. New boundaries will be set going forward to insure better relations and professional conducts hopefully all round. But let's get real, others will try to replace those who got caught and feel they can be more careful, trying to keep the actions going on. But maybe now, there's secretive traps being laid down to cut them off at the pass and vanquish them away from harm to others faster than the pace they're originally on. We'll see. Stay tuned, this will NOT be over anytime soon.....
