Just for Fun

Belly Dancers are a blast to be with.  Fascinating, fun, funny, and spontaneous;  can it get any better than that?  You have to be pretty easy going to make it through bizarre costume malfunctions, crazy music miscues, missteps (mostly mine), last minute choreography changes, wonky props, wobbly, uneven or gooey stages.

These ladies are the strongest people I know and they have the fullest most amazing lives.  They volunteer, play hockey, paint, sculpt, sing, fence, play trumpets, pianos, drums and zills, make their own soap, run the local open mike night, write for the local paper, throw axes for accuracy, earn their PhD, make puppets, volunteer, blog, travel, run marathons in tutus, teach cooking, compete in mixed martial arts contests, surf in Costa Rica, teach ju jutsu, earn their blackbelt, and raise strong, confident children.  Seven own their own businesses, one speaks four languages, some have lived overseas.  We have more photographers and artists than your local art exhibit and enough degrees to form a small faculty.  Hanging with these chicks needs to be on your bucket list!

Here are a few fun pictures and some fabulous quotes from Eves and friends.  Enjoy!
