I had quite the journey at Lake Eden Arts Festival. I danced four separate numbers, on two nights and ran a merch booth for the first time ever, stocked with headdresses and prints of my art. It’s safe to say I bit off more than I could chew, but somehow, and with the help of some very nice friends, I got it all down. The first night of performances, I danced a more casual set with Kaya Project, and had a wonderful time with them. On Saturday, I opened for the headlining act, with a solo number followed by a choreographed duet with my friend Jaclyn. I do not think selling my art at craft festivals is my thing, as I lost a lot of money on it, but it was a learning experience to say the least. Maybe I’ll give it another shot some day, in a different setting. The performances were the highlight of the weekend, and I will be back to dance at LEAF in the fall, sans booth.
