  1. One Down, Three to Go!

    by , 09-15-2011 at 03:47 AM
    For the past two weeks, I've been trying my hand at selling my gently used costumes. It's tough going. I've recently posted about 4 costumes for sale, and none of you dancers out there in cyberspace are exactly wrestling each other to be the first buyer in line. (I don't know why not. Good costumes! Great prices!)

    I took two costumes that I wanted to sell to the dance studio tonight, and a friend tried on one of them. She has a performance coming up and the custom costume she's ...

  2. Not exactly a wardrobe malfunction

    by , 09-09-2011 at 06:17 AM
    I've had hooks on my costume pop open on stage twice. (You'd think I would have learned the first time.) The story below is not about a wardrobe malfunction, but about a different kind of wardrobe emergency I had this summer dancing in Bodrum, Turkey.

    After acquiring not one, two, or even three, but FOUR brand-new costumes in one week, I was excited to the point of being overwhelmed. Which costume should get the spotlight first? I wondered.

    I decided on the black ...

  5. Dancing on TV in Turkey

    by , 09-05-2011 at 04:25 PM
    Since I returned to Turkey in January 2011, I've been lucky enough to have my performances televised and/or perform on TV four times.

    All four times have involved at least some level of stress or confusion!

    The first time, I was performing in a Turkish Romany concert. It was before I felt prepared to perform Turkish Romany dance, and it was my first gig after moving to Istanbul.

    The second time, I appeared on Mehmet Ali Erbil's show, and I almost missed ...
