Live Music is Magic

Dancing to music by Ritim Egzotik last weekend was such a treat! If you haven’t checked them out in Portland, you should. The bonus? They are usually playing for a bevy of beautiful belly dancers, as was the case last Sunday night at the Hawthorne Theater Lounge. Here’s a little video from my performance. I have not danced to live musicians regularly, but I hope that will change now that I’m living in Portland. It really changes the dynamic of my dancing and keeps me even more present in the moment. It’s magic, really.

Road Trip: PDX for Bellydance Uncorked on May 28!

Speaking of upcoming performances…this monthly show in Portland is not to be missed!  Hosted by Elise, Endymienne, & Jen of Narcissa Productions, Bellydance Uncorked is a unique evening showcase of varied talents! Every last Saturday at Vino Vixens, the Bellydance Uncorked show is an opportunity for the entire community to mingle, sip wine in a luscious, intimate wine lounge, and be enthralled by the myriad of burlesque, fusion, dancehall, hoop, tribal, fan, belly dancers and musicians the region has to offer.  The Bijou Project is very excited to be joining the all the lovely and talented dancers this month.  Why not make a road trip and join us for the show?  Who needs more than one reason to visit Portland?
