    Default Gypsy Caravan Stage

    This is an annual event I perform at every July. I’m lucky to have become a core dancer at this stage, it’s really a wonderful event. This was my 13th year! Thought I’d share some pictures of… drum roll please… The Gypsy Caravan Stage!


    Here is the stage still under construction the day before opening.


    This is before the Friday morning show, Sage is putting up some last minute decorations.


    Here are Kameal and Bene Sharez creating a beautiful entry way.


    Construction crew master, Steven, putting up tables for the audience.

    We open each set with a group performance, patterned a bit after Jamila Salimpour’s Bal Anot. We circle the stage, form a crescent and each dancer does a brief greeting dance to the audience.
