Tribal Fest 10 Overview

This Tribal Fest was a fun amazing time as always. It was my 4th year attending; 2nd year performing with TribalTique.

I drove the 1300 mile drive out to California with my boyfriend Ryan. The TribalTique girls and I rented a house with a little cottage above the driveway this year. It was awesome! Ryan and I got to stay in the cottage and we ate at Howards cafe down the street just about every single morning... we had the sweetest waitress.

All of the workshops I took were great... I had to end up skipping a couple just because my brain and body couldn't take it. This year I ran myself pretty ragged between Cues & Tattoos, Elevation, Tribal Fest 10 and helping to open the new studio (Red Elephant Workshop). I'm not sure what to change for next year... but I'll try to play it a bit smarter.

Our performance went swimmingly well (still in the process of trying to get C&T and TF10 vids on youtube, they'll be posted here once that is accomplished). We all remembered the choreography/ me and Molly hit all of our improvisational bits we wanted to. I don't believe I tripped this time which was fantastic! LOL!

Overall, we definitely ate a ton of good food, bought some pretties (in particular my awesome nose rings from Silk Road Tribal! I love the girls who run that business, sweetest ladies ever. Got to go to Korbel again with Molly and Ryan.

That's all that's coming to mind currently. I'll leave you with a picture from our performance at TF10. (There'll be a post to follow solely of pictures from the trip)

I love my troupe mates... we did good this year. =)
