Vanessa introduced various popular rhythms in AfroPeruvian dance and led dancers through the fun and traditional dance of the "Alcatraz" (In this dance, the man traditionally pursues a woman by having great skill in shadowing her using a candle's flame to ignite the small piece of cloth pinned to a woman's back.) The woman suggestively plays with the movement of her hips to escape the candle's flames.(See the sidebar for ongoing AfroPeruvian dance classes Fridays 6:30-8pm!) The weather is finally picking up and I'm looking forward to all the festivals and outdoor activities lined up for the season. Keep your eye out for the new multi-media arts festival produced by PUSH arts at South Lake Union for some experiential contemporary art-late night.
