Back during the days when the Mystic Lotus troupe (run by Mylitta) had a yearly Halloween hafla, ladies from our studio (the Aegela Centers for Middle Eastern Dance in Toledo, Ohio) would often make the trek up to Michigan to hangout with our dance sisters, watch the other performances, and put on a performance or two ourselves. I miss those haflas, they were so fun. :)
In 2009, I created a circus-themed choreography to “Roustabout” by Beats Antique. Each dancer took on the role of a different circus character/performer — with me as the ringmaster because I made the choreo. ;)
The theme was part macabre circus, part Muppet zombie, part glam/sparkles carousel, and all whimsical fun! :)
Dancers (L-R, Front row first):
Stephanie (tight rope walker)
Voni (Girl that rides the pony & does tricks)
Laura (Trapeze artist)
Becca (Lion tamer)
Sandi (Fortune Teller)
This was so much fun to do with the ladies and they all worked so hard in the rehearsals leading up to the performance.
Thank you, ladies!
