last night's performance

I was nervous enough last night waiting for my turn to go on stage. Imagine my shock when I saw another belly dancer go on before me - I thought I would be the only one belly dancing that night!! As it turned out, the other belly dancer felt the same way when she saw me (or so I found out later when we spoke). Lucky for us we had completely different styles.

When it was my turn I started dancing with a VERY nervous look on my face. I keep forgetting that I do that when I start, but I'll remember to take care of that next time. The performance seemed to go fine, in spite of the fact that I did in fact blank out toward the end and forget to do two very cool tricks. There really was a point where I was walking around that pole and thinking...oh my god I must know a ton of tricks and spins and inversions and I can't think of a single one right now!! This happens sometimes when I perform in public.

Here is how I know it went well: At the end of the night I went to say goodbye to Pantera who runs the event. Pantera told me that people were asking her when she'll have me back! I got requests to return!! I wasn't planning on coming back, but how can I possibly resist such an enthusiastic audience (just watch the video and you can HEAR the enthusiasm)! I'll definitely be back next year.

Keep in mind I was really nervous and forgot a few tricks. If you look closely, you can see me licking my own knee at 3:10 into it (being naughty helped me forget my nervousness).
