Now That’s A Look!

It’s Saturday, so it must be time for the next entry of Now That’s a look!  Unfortunately I don’t recall my source when I collected this one.


A new live show/experience. A cast of world class Cirque du Soleil artists interact with animation, video projection, lasers, illusions and puppetry. A gothic fairytale from future history set in an alternate reality and told through the unbridled imagination and creativity of a child.

New Class with Debby

OMG! Last night I had the extreme pleasure of attending the class with Debby Lammam at Achieve Fitness – her new digs, and had a marvelous time! Debby has trained with, and carries on Suhaila Salimpour’s technique building skills & prowess into her classes. It was literally and figuratively Kick Ass!

Classes are Tuesday nights, 7:30 – 9:00 pm – ACHIEVE Fitness Studios, 600 S Center Street, Reno.


Amazingly fluid and awesome.

Divination & Delusion

One of my favorite artists is mixed-media assemblage artist Kris Kuksi for his amazingly meticulous and detailed sculptures.  I first discovered him in 2008, and have been following his artistic commentary since.  I love his art!  – Just learned about, and pre-ordered his book β€œDivination and Delusion” that will be released next month. 

Cannot wait to pour through its pages.

Master Class with Gina

Gina is back! And she’ll be holding a Drills and Technique Master Class on December 4th at the River School. The studio is not huge, so I’d reserve your spot now.

There will even be live drumming by musicians from the Ivory Coast! How often do we have that opportunity?

Mira Betz bellydance tribal fusion

The first time I watched Mira perform live she was wearing a cream colored costume head-to-toe which, canvassed against her alabaster skin, lent her an ethereal other-worldly quality that made me catch my breath.  That she’s lusciously curvy and not rail thin is also a big bonus.  The performances that I’ve seen have always been perfection, as her technique is oh so glorious.

Art By The Inch – Washoe County

Tommy Shearer is a man I admire profoundly and immeasurably, who is a gifted metal artist and expressionist painter. He and and 12 other local artists will be creating large scale paintings this Saturday in a fundraiser called “Art by the Inch” where literally the works will be sold for a $1.00 an inch to benefit Homeless Children in Transition; a Washoe County School District Program. All the artist are donating their time and materials to the project in the hopes of raising their collective goal of $6000 to benefit 2000 kids this year. This is the program’s 4th Annual fundraising event and the need even greater. Here’s a short capture of last year’s successful event and copy of their flyer with all the deets.

πŸ™‚ :: Thank you Tommy, I’ll see you there!
