This summer's gonna be a BLAST and one of the things I'm really looking forward to is CARIVIBE, here in Ottawa (Orleans) on June 19th.
Suzan Lavertu, the awesomest of awesome women (and director of The Cultural Arts Studio School Of Afro-Caribbean Dance - where I shake my thang every Sat) is putting togeher an amazing opportunity to both have a blast during Carivibe AND raise some awareness and funds for earthquake victims in Haiti.
Some information is below - take a browse and e-mail or call me if you're interested. It'd be GREAT to have you join in!
Love and hugs!
CARIVIBE is an annual celebration of Caribbean culture in the Nation’s Capital. It offers a diverse array of tropical rhythm, cuisine, carnival and culture. The parade will feature a wide variety of floats depicting various themes and creative ideas. The Carnival for a Cause Band will be participating in the parade portion of the festivities.

Here are some ways you can join in the fun!
DANCERS - A $25 fee (all proceeds to benefit earthquake victims in Haiti) gets you a group t-shirt, all the bottled water you need, and an awesome group of dancers to play mas with! Let me know if you're interested and I can send you the form (due by June 4).
ARTSY FOLKS- Like makeup? We need folks to "sparkle up" the dancers. All the sparkles and glitter will be there - we just need your fancy touch!
HANDS ON HGTV KINDA FOLKS- We've got to build a wooden hut the night before. Any construction folks in the house?
BIG GUYS - The Marshalls keep everyone safe and look out if people need water etc…We need at least 2 broad fellas.....cute ones preferred:)
