Solo dance performance: once as a girl and once as a boy

Earlier this year, I gave myself some dance goals for 2012.  One of them was "Choreo a solo blues routine and perform it in front of actual people."

First weekend in November, in Washington, DC, I was afforded the opportunity to perform a piece* I've been working on since mid-August at Bambloozled, which is put on every year by the fantastic folks at Capitol Blues.

I think it went pretty well:

The second half of this performance was at Snowbound Blues in Rochester, NY.

The second time, I'm dressed as a boy.  Weird.  I won't lie to you, this post is gonna be long.
