Looking to meet like minded people and revolving dance partners, have been neglecting my first love of dance for too long. Studied African Dance in Senegal years ago; would like to take up Tango and Salsa dancing as well as just go to concerts and outdoor summer events. Looking forward to becoming more social and active, but takes a little courage to enter the over-50 singles scene, so I'm grateful to Meet-Up for providing such opportunities!
Hi, in my NYC past I was a world music impresario, managing such artists as Ravi Shankar, Pink Floyd, Indredible String Band, Hamza El Din; changed occupations--now teaching the Feldenkrais Movement Method for many years; although here in Boston I helped organize & manage "Ibrahima's World Beat" and owned the African store the "Talking Drum" for 6 years...now love teaching movement and love to dance to the World Beat! Favorite artists; Baaba Maal, Youssou N'Dour, any artist from Mali (they are in trouble now, I'm looking for other any events which seek to help the musicians around Timbuktu...love also Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, Tango, 'authentic movement' (no music except the internal)..still love the music of Ravi Shankar and his daughter Anoushka, as well as his other daughter Nora Jones!...World Music in general gets my blood circulating, meeting new people, and raises my spirts high!
Hi! I'm the former proprietor of the "Talking Drum" living in Arlington where I also work as a Feldenkrais Practitoner, Bones for Life teacher. I formerly produced concerts in NYC, and love to dance to African based World Music, glad for new venues
