Tori Types Thoughts
Tori's very average blog
Gratitude, Growth, and Promotions
This month hasn't quite gone the way I thought it would... and it's not over yet! Nothing negative has happened, but the universe has given me some lessons in humility when it comes to energy management and patience. I have a lot of ambitions, a lot to practice, and minimal time and zesty creative yummy greatness. My biggest realization came when I gazed upon myself in the mirror as I taught my workshop for Chad's knee (my first time teaching a dance workshop based in raqs sharki woo). I decided to become a dance teacher that can teach more than just moves and combos. I have a long way to go to reach this goal, but that means it is a goal worth having... and more time/work on my part. The effort is just endless, but for me it is worth it. Keep your eyes on this page for the inevitable Saidi workshop that will emerge from my eager and loving (and unfunded thus far by grants) heart and more workshops that will include theatre exercises, history lessons, and pontificating on the importance of music choice!
I will always be grateful to work with my amazing troupe, the StarBelly Dancers. We have come a long way together and the level of artistic energy fills me with life (zesty creative yummy greatness). The StarBelly Performance Team, the StarBelly Student Troupe and the students at StarBelly School of Dance also continue to inspire me to continue to learn, grow, and try my best to be humble (even though it is not my instinct). Even when I'm running low on whatever it is human beings run on, I am filled with love for and from this group of amazing ladies and gentlemen.
And now for a dose of promotions
Yes, this post is AFTER the Taj event, but Jess and I match too well not to be documented.
Tori King is a belly dance artist, culture enthusiast and general weirdo. Is this a good biography? Do you like me yet? :-)
