Last weekend I performed and collaborated with OmBellyCo, the troupe I coach, to perform a ritualistic calling of the "elements". We stood in a large circle and each did a 2-3min solo: BrieAnn as Air, Shakti as Fire, Cecile as Water, me as Earth. Then we went into the circle, to a basket from which our veils draped. We gathered our veils and out popped five year old Juliette, as Spirit. She blessed each of us with her magic wand and then sprinkled the audience with rose petals while we did a veil piece. The music was all original music by Shakti's man, Eric. What a wonderful thing to be asked to participate in.
