I am very excited to share that I will be dancing in the Fremont Solstice Parade this year! This parade has been happening for 21 years and is sponsored by the Fremont Arts Council. I will be shaking my hips with Delilah and many other bellydancers. This year's theme is water, and the colors of our costumes will be turquoise. I must admit that two of the reasons I decided to dance this year are that I am in love with the color turquoise and there will be a lot of veil work in the choreography.
I created this turquoise flower for myself, and I cannot wait to integrate my hand felted creations into my dance costume. I'm thinking a hair garland, or a turquoise lei, or maybe a hip scarf with some crocheted falls with small felted flowers. I'm excited to design my costume...I have 6 weeks until the parade! Here's a link to a video celebrating the history of belly dancers in the parade.
