After 262 video postings, it’s time to bring the video of the week to an end. I’d like to close it out by re-posting the first one from 5/22/2008. It’s still just as awesome as it was back then. Enjoy!

Maiensy says: From the depth of my heart to yours, here is another opportunity for all to practice showing up and being present. We will work with body weight transfer, internal breathing, and body isolation exercises. In the process, we will develop our self-connection as dancers and musical sensibilities.
Noon – 2:00, bring comfortable clothing and either a cozy blanket, yoga mat, or long towel for the initial portion of the workshop. Socks are recommended but not required. See the Facebook invitation to register and for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/358069237626630/
Here’s an article about Sonny Newman, the owner of the studio where we’ve danced for a bunch of years: http://seattletimes.com/html/localnews/2020930262_jdlcolumn06xml.html

Rumba Northwest is working with Plaza Cuba to organize a LEGAL dance/culture trip to Cuba March 1-10, 2014. The itinerary will include seven nights in Havana and two nights in Trinidad (an amazing colonial town about five-hour drive from Havana). The program will include lodging, transportation, breakfasts, dance classes, and lots of cultural exchanges with local musicians, dancers, and artists. Although we are still ironing out the final details, the cost will be around $2,200/person (not including flights). I have lots more to tell you about this amazing trip if you are interested! Just send an email to email@example.com and I will send more details. –Heather
Rumba Northwest will be teaching a beginning Cuban salsa/Rueda class at the Folk Life Festival at Seattle Center (Rainier Room) 1-1:50pm on Monday May 27th. Although it will be a beginning class, this is a good opportunity to welcome new people into the Seattle casino scene, and recruit students.
Later that evening our team will be performing at the annual salsa party in the Armory (Center House). There are live bands, a salsa DJ, and performances scheduled from 6-10pm. We may try to organize an outdoor rueda session before the 6pm salsa party, like we’ve done in the past, stay tuned.
On Sunday night (26th) there is some Latin music at the mural amphitheater:
6:45-7:10pm Brazilian drums
There are probably more Latin things happening throughout the weekend…full schedule is at http://2013northwestfolklifefestival.sched.org/
Hope to see you there!
