Winds of the Sahara Cabaret

On Sunday I had a chance to perform at Winds of the Sahara Cabaret.

It was their Veteran’s Day show, and there were some amazing acts.

Winds 1Jag was up first, with a fantastic number done to “The Warrior Song.”

A great set, complete with bullets flying from a plane overhead.

After Jag, it was Winnie’s turn to take the stage.

Winds 2Winnie is an amazingly creative dancer, and I love watching her performances.

Of course, I’m also a sucker for any kind of lyrical dance. 😀

Her tribute to fallen soldiers was beautiful, graceful, and quintessentially Winnie.

Winds 3Switching gears a bit, Devlin hit the stage with his performance of “Cowboy Casanova” by Carrie Underwood.

I hadn’t heard this song before, but it was a fun, toe-tapping number.

The next act was Moni’s debut performance, a lovely couples number to “Into the Night” by Santana.

Winds 4Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to snap any pics of the number due to a RL distraction. 😦

After Moni, it was time for Ariel and crew to take the stage, dancing to a mix of songs from Rent.

I’m a huge fan of Broadway musicals and show tunes, and this was a very fun routine.

Winds 5Wrapping up the show was Queenie, dancing to “Children’s Crusade.”

This was another lovely routine, starting out in the trenches and fading into a lovely field of beautiful poppies.

I had a fantastic time dancing and it was fun to enjoy the creativity and hard work of the other performers.

Winds has shows every Sunday at 5pm SLT, so join their group to stay updated on the latest happenings.

Winds of the Sahara Cabaret Dance Show

Sunday night I found myself with a little bit of free time, so I headed over to Winds of the Sahara to see their weekly cabaret show.

WotSC 1The show opened with Jilley, Paul, and Wiz doing a techno number.

I liked the costumes for this act.

Ariel was up next with a hot little number to ‘Fever’ by Peggy Lee.

There was a fair bit of skin in the act, and I missed getting a pic before most of the costume was gone. :/

The next act seemed to go a bit haywire.

Devlin had a terrific tribal headhunter costume, but ended up dancing through a couple of walls and was offstage for a fair bit of the routine.

WotSC 3I wasn’t having any lag issues, but SL has been behaving oddly all week.

Things settled down for the next number, a trio of Lotta, Chrissy, and Ariel (I think).

I forgot to write down the name of the song for this one, darn it.

After Lotta and the girls, Queenie was up, channeling her inner Katy Perry.

The candy set for this one was adorable, complete with gummy bears and spinning lollipops.

The last act of the night was Chrissy, dancing to ‘Dear Ophelia’ by Abney Park, one of my favorite songs by them.

I think the lag monster reared its ugly head again during this act, because the sync of the dancers was off and I wasn’t able to get a pic while the ghostly pair was still onstage.

WotSC 5I did manage to get a snap of Chrissy and Amen, though. 😀

Winds does a show every Sunday at 5pm SLT.

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.
