Kountdown Day 48: Angela
Meet Angela, one of our former Karavan Studio belly dancers from Austin.
"Hi, Angela Sparks here – or some may know me as Angela Nations. I’m super excited to be part of this guaranteed to be amazing 20th Anniversary GBDAC show! While I currently reside in Austin, where I teach yoga and belly dance and help my husband run a chiropractic clinic, I was once a hardcore Karavaner.
After graduating from Texas State University where I enjoyed dancing my heart out and earned my BFA in Dance and Theatre, I moved back to San Antonio and got a job. Ugh, what a rude awakening. I didn’t dance for a whole year and I got really depressed. : (
So one day in 1996 (if memory serves me, which I don’t always claim it does), I popped in Karen’s studio and she let me try out a class. The music, the challenging moves, and the Karavan Krew - I was instantly hooked and have been belly dancing ever since. : )
I taught at the Karavan studio from around 1998 (again, if memory serves...) until 2004 when I relocated to Austin and married Dustin Sparks. We have a quaint little family – the two of us and our two meows, Dr. Meowser and his side kick Dink. Austin has been fun, but we are actually considering a move back to the SA area – time will tell!
Until then, see you at the show Saturday night and look for me in Amayaguena, Andah Alaik, and Mahlana Sawah (all on Saturday night) with a big ole grin on my face to be back on stage with my Karavan Peeps. Oh, and Lulu – of course! Yallah!
P.S. You can also catch me dancing at the Texas Renaissance Festival in the fall with Shunyata Belly Dance in the Spanish section. Ole!"
