Hula time! For my second hula performance with Halau Makana we danced at Ashkenaz Music and Dance Community Center. Ashkenaz has music and dance events six days a week; the last Sunday of each month is dedicated to Ethnic Dance.
Pre-performance I asked Hubby to take a photo of me in my Halau Makana gear and pre-hula hair. He took a mirror photo O_o, and then a real one…
Behind the scenes! While I was waiting my turn to practice our routine, I enjoyed the sweet sounds of soundcheck (our band was awesome!), watched some of the performances, and helped get costumes ready.
Check the space! Ashkenaz has been a Berkeley establishment for 45 years; imagine all the sharing and community building that has happened over the years in this space!
I performed the same dance as my first performance, but this time we had different costumes: Red! Ooh la la.
I had so much fun performing with these ladies. And to start a tradition – selfies with Cat!
Since I was only in one dance, I snuck out into the sidelines to watch some of the other performances. 🙂
Until next time! My big hula recital (Ho’ike) is October 13 in Alameda. You’re all invited!
