It’s always a sad day when a dance venue closes in SL. I heard through the grapevine that Winds of Sahara Cabaret will be closing their doors. 😦
I’m not sure what happened, but heard that they would be doing two more shows – one last night and one next week. However, I’m not sure that the show planned for next week will actually happen. After hearing more chatter from the grapevine, I went over to Winds to see for myself, and this is what I found:
The majority of the building is gone, with the exception of a few walls.
The booths are gone, though the seating near the front of the stage is still there.
I used to dance at Winds (it seems like a lifetime ago now), and I have some very fond memories of it.
Warming up backstage, watching other dancers cache their dances and costumes, the camaraderie and joking chit chat that went on. Good times.
Today, this is what I found left of the backstage area:
I met some really amazing people during my time there.
Nothing lasts forever, they say.
I wonder what will happen to my favorite Danish MC?
