Annual Benefit Weekend at the Oasis

The weekend of April 9 & 10, 2022

Our annual benefit will return on April 9 & 10, 2022 at the South Bay Grange. We are saddened that Changing Rein has had to close business. However, we are pleased to announce that our event will now benefit the South Bay Grange. This is a nice wood frame building with a nice big dance floor, stage, and kitchen and we hope that it will continue to host a variety of events over the years. Our event will help make that a reality.

Samara Mezdulene

Evening performance cost is $15 at the door, $12 if paid two weeks in advance. Advance payment will put you on the door list, as we do not print actual tickets.

Experience the Joy Dance and Music Workshop

Saturday, August 11
Woman's Club, Olympia

Experience the Joy. In the heyday of Middle Eastern nightclubs there were frequent opportunities for dance students to get on the dance floor and move for the sheer pleasure of enjoying the music in a social setting. Dancers could mimic the movements of those more experienced, participate in a line dance, or just "zone out" to the music, absorbing the rhythms and the feeling of the music. Wayne and Denise of the Acoustic Pilgrims bring you the hafla experience, with live music and some easily learned group dances and exercises to get you started dancing freely, for pure joy. We will focus on a few rhythms and songs that are fun to dance to. Let go and dance. Drummers, musicians and dancers welcome.

$10 paypal to berubej@comcast.net

We'd like to encourage musicians to attend this great workshop as well as dancers. Space is limited, though, so get your registration fee in soon. DRUMMERS - join us!!
