Oh Where, Oh Where Have Sakura gone ....?

... Oh where, oh where can they be?

We're still here! We've gone nowhere!!!!

We have been quite quiet over the past couple of months because life has been a nuisance and has been getting in the way. Pah! Sarah's got a heavy workload at the moment and Jan has managed to break her little toe ..... the one she DIDN'T break last year! I (Cayte) am bobbling along quite nicely thank you. I have some pretty intensive dance training next month that I'm really looking forward to and I'm LOVING teaching my classes.

However, we have a fair few exciting things coming up later in the year. At the end of April we're performing at the Lowton hafla (here)with our fabulous friends, the Wild Hearts (their very first improv performance! They'll be wonderful!). Then in May we're off to Liverpool  (here) to dance with them all over again (as long as we get a spot, Kate!!!). Good times!

Sakura are then honoured to be representing Gypsy Caravan style at a show in Liverpool. It's called 'ORIGINS : CELEBRATION OF A JOURNEY' and full details are available right here. In short, the show traces the history of tribal style with examples of dances which have had a key influences upon its development - and a look at where it is now. We're really looking forward to sharing the stage with our ATS® and BSBD sisters ... not to mention flamenco, Indian and oriental dancers !

Then in September we have another exciting event coming up! We have been invited to perform at The Mai-ni-aXe Book of Bedtime Stories in Nottingham .. find out more here. Workshops, scary tales, fabulously spooky dancing (including some improv from us). Woo Hoo!

Ooops - almost forgot!! In April I'm also off to JoY - the amazing Jewel of Yorkshire festival - for a bit of a Les Soeurs Tribales fix! Sadly the other Sakura girls can't make it, but I'm busy recruiting Wild Hearts for a bit of a road trip.
A couple of months later I'll be teaching - as Namaste - at the annual Learn Bellydance Camp in Clitheroes. Details are right here. Come and join us!

So that's where we're up to - quietly lurking ready to POUNCE when we're all fighting fit again! Hope you are all enjoying life, and if not virtual hugs are heading your way from us.

Until next time - Happy dancing/
