Episode 17: Alchemy and Cake/Craft Digression

10:08 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
This week on the podcast the YIP Crew have good intentions of staying focused and talking about how awesome Alchemy is (because they totally are), but get caught in a conversation spiral of blogs, t-shirts and cake. Mary recommends some more awesome music, Tammy recommends a bunch of awesome events that the YIP Crew can't afford to go to (le sigh...) and Jack gets slapped on Shimmy Cove!

I've been a student of Mari's for almost two years. She is the best teacher. Her mentorships is two-fold. She has a wonderful understanding of the mechanics of bellydance, and has a wonderful knack of explaining moves. She also gets me through the sticky spots and listens to all my frustrated venting! I highly recommend her class to anyone!
ps. Keep it up ladies, you make my drive to work much more enjoyable!
