Yesterday a group of belly dancers represented Memphis in Shimmy Mob, an international flashmob event designed to raise funds for women’s and children’s shelters in local communities. It was an honor to dance with this group of ladies.
Many thanks to Debra Parmley for organizing the event, to Jasmine of Dance with Jasmine for leading choreography practices, and to the folks at Singleton Community Center and the Buckman Performing and Fine Arts Center for donating practice space!
And of course, a big thank you to the YWCA of Greater Memphis for the work they do in our community.
Thanks also to Liz London of Memphis Raqs who donated the proceeds of her show last night to the shelter.
