Facebook shared a memory status with me this morning, you know like “Timehop” where your automatically reminded of what you said, saw, and posted on social media on this very same day a few years back. Well my memory was be posting about a Dancehall Workshop I was having in Philadelphia, for those of you that don’t know, West Philadelphia is my hometown and where I spent ALLL of my days (yes that was corny but so what, lol) , and Philly is actually where Raediant Movement Dancehall classes originated, starting out with monthly and then bi-weekly classes. I would happily go to Philly to teach, dance, and connect with others that had been looking for a Dancehall class close to home. It wasn’t easy at all to show up in town and not always know if anyone will even show up for the class. There were times when no one showed other than my close friends and times when the class was so packed I couldn’t fit everyone in the small studio space that was normally used for Yoga & Pilates.
I made a few friends and big time Raediant Supporters from the Philly classes and the experience gave me the confidence to begin to offer weekly classes where I currently reside in the DMV area. Thank you to the Philly Raediant Movers for coming out to those classes/workshops and to those of you that are still emailing and sending Facebook posts asking me when I will be coming back to the Philly – Tristate Area. I would love to come back and dance with you and even have a few of my DMV Raediant Movers join me, If you are in Philly and would like to invite Raediant Movement to your studio , or event please respond to this post and let me know! We all know that sometimes Facebook can rehash some memories that we would like to forget but this was a great memory and I thank Facebook for reminding me of it.
