Baba Ghanoush isn’t big on making resolutions, especially not the kind that get lost in an embarrassed tumble of excuses or life-as-usual. We do, however, enjoy making lists and dreaming up future projects. So while we’ve spent most of January welcoming in the New Year with music, dance, and friends, we’ve also been planning our adventures for 2013. For starters, we’ve applied to some local festivals and haflas. We’ve been discussing what to choreograph next: a new drum solo, a sword dance, or perhaps a new candle dance? There may even be a Delicious Duets workshop percolating. Meanwhile, we will continue to develop our own dance techniques and personal styles in the coming year, and you can continue to see us solo once or twice a month at Kitchen of India in Parkville, Md.
What will 2013 hold?
If you’re hankering to see us in action sooner rather than later, check out our Upcoming Performances below. In particular, we are very excited about Ishtar’s visit to Baltimore on March 2-3, 2013. This will be a weekend of workshops and Ishtar performances including both open dancing and scheduled performers. Amy Fae will be co-teaching a Theatrical Bellydance Workshop with Nina Amaya on March 3, and both Amy Fae and Alizarin will have solo performances with the band at the hafla later that day. Check out the Facebook event page for more information regarding the weekend’s events.
