For more than 30 years Palm Springs has been home to one of the most exciting and energetic events of the year. The weekend of May 11-12, 2013 will welcome the 31st Southwest Dance, Movement and Acro-Sports Workshop at the Palm Springs Convention Center. For two days the center will rock with performances, workshops, vendor exhibits and fun all focused on dancing of every possible genre.
This year Kaelynn “Kay Kay” Gobert-Harris leads the pack. Famous for her appearances with 8FLAVAHZ (an all-female dance troop) Kay Kay has earned numerous honors and awards for her edgy and diverse styles of dance, as well as her creativity. She has worked with some of the biggest names in the business including Queen Latifah, Denise Simmons, Britney Spears, Soulja Boy, and Willow Smith. She has also performed for the millions of fans who watch X Factor, MTV’s Video Music Awards, VH1 Divas Live, and Nickelodeon.
The workshop schedule kicks off bright and early on Saturday morning at 7 AM followed by performances and exhibitors for two entire days. It may sound as though you have to be young and in perfect physical condition to attend this event, but thankfully, you don’t! In fact, there will be something for everybody and classes for all ages and abilities. This means no matter how old we are we could still bring our kids and have a good time. For me, that’s important!
This event always brings in huge flock of dance fans and health aficionados. If they have never been to the Coachella Valley before they are usually blown away by what they find here. Let’s face it, the desert is the place to be if you like being healthy and physically fit. With clean air, miles and miles of hiking and walking tracks, a wide range of outdoor activities including golf and tennis, and all the health spas and holistic healing centers anyone could ask for: there is just no place quite like the Coachella Valley to look and feel your very best.
I expect to be plenty busy as usual showing beautiful luxury homes to our perspective new neighbors. With interest rates the lowest they have been in my memory I am getting used to hearing the delighted exclamations when my clients discover they can now afford the home they always dreamed of. It is safe to say I love my job. I hope you are planning an active weekend with the people you love at the Palm Springs Convention Center May 11-12. Be well and stay happy!
