Soaring Eagle Sail into Spring

By Roy Cook

This April 28, 2010 Soaring Eagle Dance workshop was filled with enthusiasm. Young and old dancers and visitors were eager to enjoy the evening with the Soaring Eagles. Vickie Gambala opened the evening program with dinner from 6-6:30pm. Soaring Eagle Dance Workshop instruction began promptly at 6:30 pm and called for all the dancers to the corner entrance for a grand entry format to start the evening. This is our new snug schedule for the Soaring Eagle Dance Workshop.


We had one drum, this evening, San Diego Intertribal singers. This gave the dancers opportunities to enjoy dancing two songs for each category. All the other regular categories were reviewed too. The Special contest winners from GCC pow wow were announced to the entire group.

There are many Pow wow doings coming up in our San Diego community these next three months. Our Soaring Eagles are being selected for responsible Head staff positions at these events. We have watched the two year olds and others as they learn and grow up. The girls now have their shawls and the boys use the dance sticks and hoops to gesture their moves. Come to a local event and see for yourself.

Maybe we will see you and your family at the next Soaring Eagle Dance Workshop on Tuesday Evening, 6:30pm, at the Old Town Ballard Parent center. Everyone is welcome!
