Michael Jackson

I loved seeing him perform. He will be missed. RIP



On the 6th of June I travelled to Columbia MO. The weather was nice, I left in enough time not to be rushed. Upon my arrival to the Kayotea I was pleasantly surprised. This being my first visit, and not knowing what to expect. The parking was not too bad, there was metered parking on both sides of the street. Yeah, it was after 5pm the meter was not needing to be feed. Kayotea is a quaint place, large dance area. The walls are painted red, my favorite color, so I was at ease. Table seating and it is enough to handle a crowd. But beware and don't sit on the antique chairs!(Signs Posted) The tearoom has a delectable menu for dining and of course lots of beverage choices.

I enjoyed my time in Columbia. After I zipped back down the highway to home sweet home.



St Louis Bellydancers

Take a last look at the St. Louis Belly dancer's website! I received an email today stating that the web mistress is moving out of town and the website will be removed. It was a way for everyone to keep track of everyone and current happenings in the area. In order not to let it go to rest, I'm going to make sure all of the links, instructors and performers who currently have a website in the St. Louis area and residing close will be listed on the Raks Sharki website!

I will send out emails soon! If you are a dancer in the St. Louis area, Mid-West, or close proximity contact me. I want to keep things listed. People need to know who, what and we still shimmy in this area!

Yalla for the Audience

The end of the month concludes belly dance events. 3 this month!

I did a volunteer performance at the St. Louis Charter School with Raw Earth, dancing for children is so much fun.

Yesterday was Raks Sharki in STL. Again I enjoyed myself. We had the pleasure of an audience member/male who enjoyed the music as much or more than we did. Now how much fun was that! It has always been a pleasure to share the dance with those who feel the music as much as belly dancers. Yalla
