This dance thang has been ‘sum’ kind of journey.  ‘Sheba’ – my dance alter ego – was buried so deep in side me – I didn’t  really think she was gonna make her self known in this life time – I mean, at 50 – who thinks about dancing …. and on and around a pole no less.  But ‘Sheba’ made it clear – it was bout  that time.  And now, here at 54 – I think I kinda got ‘the hang’ of it !

But no journey is done alone.  So lo and behold – all my teachers appeared as needed to lovingly nurture my Sheba self.  So many of them, nestled inside of so many sacred temples posing as dance studios around the city.  I have to shout out Luscious Maven, Be Spun,  Aeriform Arts , Choreography House and Polistics …  also shout out Allure and Evolve for classes taken there,  and then there are my new finds, PinkPoleParty.org and Womack and Bowman.

I have a special hug that goes to Allison Jones though, and her intimate goddess space Tilt Studios.  Tilt is where the majority of my dance  and photography work takes place and Jones is my tour guide as I take the rabbit hole down deeper ( or is that up higher?)  into the sacred arts.  Here is where my creativity thrives and I get to alchemize my pole magic as I  explore costuming, sensual dance movement and my own music mixes.

A goddess knows that when she shares, more abunDance comes her way ..  so I  will let you in on a well kept secret – Jones is available for private coaching  and pole lessons and her studio space is available for limited rental for dance photography and filming. You gotta know somebody to get to her though – in the entertainment business, we publicist say – ‘ya gotta have an in’ – lol.  Lucky for y’all – you know me … so if you need to know more about Tilt and reserve some time there – hit me up …

The art of learning to fly ….

Funny thing, here I Am at 54, and I don’t have any of the material wealth I worked so hard for. My house, my properties, my beautiful convertible Mercedes – all gone.  I could dwell on that and be quite sad.

Or – I could note how remarkable it is that I am in the best physical shape of my life having survived a complete financial collapse – the fall of an empire no less!  Yet I look  and feel like a million dollars.

And when I focus on this – instead of that – I know I am manifesting more beautiful things ahead.

Keep dancin’ y’all … stay in sync with the rhythm of the ‘you-niverse’.  All is well.

when you dance like nobody’s watching, you are flying over 50 ~

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”

this quote has been attributed to Mark Twain, Satchel Paige, and William Purkey – and ‘eye’ thAnkh them all !

******************************************************************************************

Hello ladies and lady loveHers, here is my “Magic Mike XXL” review in four words : 

Go See It Now !

My five faves from the film:

1) The chocolate dancers at the mansion !

2)  The lines:  “What are we?”  “We are like healers or something.”

3) Jada Pinkett ( ha! – you thought I was gonna say Channing Tatum and for the record, I am ‘strictly dickly’ – but I do honor all goddesses … and she is most definitely one.)

4) The soundtrack – most of the songs are on my pole playlist and I’ve poled to them so I was gyrating in my seat – lol!

5) The unbridled, brashy sexiness that layered the entire film.

I can’t wait to see this film again – it was so much good ol’ sexy fun!  

I give it two poles up!  It made me want to jump on the pole and just dance …. yesssss !  lololol ~
