The ODC Dance Commons located at 351 Shotwell, San Francisco for Beginning Tribal Belly Dance with Jill Parker. Jill’s Beginning Tribal Belly Dance classes are a classic San Francisco experience: They’re welcoming, weird, diverse, sweaty, trance-inducing, and somehow simultaneously straight and gay. Some students love to feel they’re in a place where it’s OK to actually have a belly, some come to gain the inevitable boost in sexy points, and some just want a great workout. They all get what they want, plus the caring yet hands-off instruction of the charismatic Parker. She’s internationally revered for having made a historically and culturally informed contribution to the nature of modern bellydance — she’s known as “the founder of the modern tribal fusion belly dance movement.” A typical beginning class is diverse in age, gender, size, race, and level of dance experience, and that’s the way the teacher likes it. She’s inspiring rather than demanding, and if you could see the smiles on the post-class faces, you’d know how much it means. Classes start at 7:30 PM and are $14 per session.

What’s On The Airwaves

If you are out and about today or at home doing projects or just hanging out and have the ability to stream radio, my recommendation is checking out WWOZ starting at 7:00 AM with Traditional Jazz Hosted by Michael Longfield..

Following Michael at 9:00 AM is the The New Orleans Music Show hosted by George Ingmire.. This is three hours of great New Orleans music..

Following George at noon is two hours of power house blues with Sitting At The Crossroads With Big D

Following Big D at 2:00 PM is 3 hours of great Jazz programming with Jazz From The French Market With Sondra Bibb..

Following Sondra at 5:00 PM is one of my favorite programs on the air. Rare On The Air hosted by Bob Murret is 3 hours of 50’s and 60’s swamp pop, rock’n’roll, r&b, soul and more…

After Rare on the Air turn the radio dial over to KPFA 94.1 at 8:00 PM for Dead To The World hosted by Tim Lynch.. Keeping the spirit and music of the Grateful Dead alive with music by the Grateful Dead, and music not by the Grateful Dead. . Highly recommended!!
