Moulin Rouge – Harem of the Nile Show

Saturday night I found myself with some unexpected free time on my hands, so I headed over to catch the latest Moulin Rouge show.

MR 1Xanthia Lisle is the Theatre Director at Moulin Rouge, and has been doing dance shows since I’ve been in SL.

Saturday night the show was the ‘Harem of the Nile’ show, and it was chock-full of gorgeous ladies!

A group dance started off the show, with a bevy of beauties dancing for the pharoah.

It was a very slow and sensual dance.

I’m sure that many in the audience were wishing for their own palm frond fans after the number!

After the group dance, Deyna did an entrancing solo belly dance.

I don’t remember the name of the song (I probably would have mangled it horribly anyway, but it was a beautiful number.

I’ve always loved belly dancing and there was plenty of it.

MR 9After Deyna’s number, Xan took to the stage with her belly dance.

The song was by a group I really enjoy – Beats Antique.

Appropriately titled ‘Egyptic,’ Xan left the audience wanting more.

She always has such amazing costumes!

Next up on the playlist was Xan and Siren as the Goddesses of Fire.

I love the costumes for this act as well.

And who doesn’t love fire effects?

Once the fire was out, there was a change of pace.

The next act was a lovely lyric number with beautiful ladies dancing on the rocks amid the ocean waves.

Then it was back to the temples for a gorgeous sabre dance done by Siren and Kitty.

(I wish I’d gotten some pictures I could share, but I couldn’t find an angle that wasn’t showing a LOT of skin.)

MR 10Following the sabre dancers, Xan delighted the audience with a snake dance.

I managed to snap a pic where the snake was covering her up!

After the solos, a group of belly dancers took the stage.

And then Cleopatra made an appearance – she’s quite the dancer, apparently. 😛

At this point I was interrupted by that pesky RL, and I missed the next number.

I know it involved a shipwreck, and a siren, but I didn’t get any pictures of it. 😦

MR 7Not only was the audience visited by Cleopatra and the Fire Goddesses, Aphrodite put in an appearance.

Dancing in her clam shell, she was the picture of loveliness.

After her graceful gyrations, Xan and Deyna hit the stage again, this time to ‘Beautiful Liar.’

Sadly, I didn’t get to stay to the end of the show, so I probably missed some other fabulous acts.

The Moulin  Rouge has a regular show on Saturdays at 7pm SLT, so join their group to stay up-to-date on happenings.

Busy Weekend

Things are busy in both worlds this weekend!

Yesterday I took a class on using social media and my brain is on overload trying to absorb all the information.

I’m trying to sort out what applies to me, what doesn’t, make a plan, and figure out how to get from A to B to C. 😀

Now that I’m writing on 3 different blogs (yes, I am crazy, I know!), time management is going to be a huge issue for me.

Add into that all the RL activities that keep me busy, and I have a recipe for disaster.

For now, I have some decisions to make, and then I will know where my focus needs to be.

Besides all the things going on in RL, there are a ton of things going on in SL this weekend.

Today at 3pm The Waterfront Theater (Bubs & Didds) have a show – the shows are always fun, so if you haven’t been, mark this one on your calendar.

Also at 3pm, Lady Garden Cabaret has their monthly show (it isn’t strange how shows always seem to end up at the same time?!).

Then there are the regular weekend shows – Elysium at 6pm, Guerilla Burlesque at 7pm and midnight tonight (last shows of this season), Elysium’s monthly matinee at 1pm and Moulin Rouge at 7pm on Saturday, and Winds of the Sahara at 5pm on Sunday.

Whew!

That should keep all you dance lovers busy whilst I attend to RL matters. 😛

Happy Dancing!!!

Weekend Entertainment

As usual, there are lots of dance shows on the weekend.  I don’t have enough time to go to all of them, so it’s always hard trying to decide which ones to go to.

This weekend, Elysium Cabaret has their weekly show at 6pm.  Then there’s Guerilla Burlesque at midnight.  I’ve been to a couple of shows, but the time makes it difficult for me to attend.  However, if you’re generally in-world at that time, it’s a ‘don’t miss’ show!

On Saturday, the Fusion Dance Crew is putting on a new show called ‘SeXXXalicious.’

FDC SeXXXalicious Show 3.28.2014

If you’re offended by nudity, don’t attend, but Felicia and her crew always put on a good show.

There’s also usually a show at Blue Moons at 2:30pm SLT on Saturday.  If you prefer evening entertainment, the Moulin Rouge Revue does a weekly show at 7pm.

If you’re up early on Sunday, catch the club IMAGE show at 6am.  If you’d rather sleep in, at 5pm you can catch the latest Winds of the Sahara Cabaret show (check out their new blog here, with some sneak peeks of acts) and KiKi’s House of Burlesque does a regular show on Sundays at 6pm.

Whew!  That’s a lot of dancing!

See you on the grid!
