The Girl Blue Project is starting our Second Year
WE’RE BAACK!. The Girl Blue Project
is starting our second year and we have added some new and
exciting changes to our program. The dates for this year’s
program are July 12th through August 20th. Get ready for
6 exciting weeks of fun and hard work. There will be lots
of sweating in some of the new classes and workshops. Don’t
worry ladies sweat gives you that “natural glow”.
Last year we invited celebrity guests and entrepreneurs
to visit the ladies of Girl Blue. We are honored to be able
to do the same this year. We can’t wait to meet the
beautiful and talented Erika Alexander of Living Single
and The Cosby Show. She has a stellar film and television
career. She has worked with Whoopi Goldberg and Sissy Spacek
in The Long Walk Home and Julia Roberts to name a few. She
is also a photographer and has agreed to photograph our
girls!!! It doesn’t get any better than that. Not
only is she a talented actress but she is a gifted photographer
as well. You just never know the hidden talents of stars.
As far as other celebrity guests, we will let you know when
their people get back to our people who will call and reconfirm
with their people. Phew! That’s Hollywood baby! (kiss
kiss) We can’t wait to hear Ms. Alexander talk about
her work. Maybe she’ll thank us in her Oscar speech?
Hmmm.. Anyhoo, welcome aboard Erika!.
Speaking of boards The Girl Blue
Project has signed on to be volunteers with Habitat
for Humanity. We are going to help build a home for a family.
Community service helps build character and in this case
probably a little muscle too. Bring on the hard hats. The
ladies will definitely be up for the challenge. This brings
a whole new meaning to Girl POWER.
We also have some new and exciting staff
members this year. We have the wonderful spoken word artist
Jaha Zainabu. Jaha has toured with The Underground Poets
Railroad, a documentary to benefit the families of the firefighters
who died as a result of 911. We are looking forward to some
SLAMMIN poetry sessions. Let’s not forget to mention
life coach and author, Dr. Nicole LaBeach,PhD. If she can’t
help you make some positive life changes I don’t know
who can. Check out her book, CHOOSE YOURSELF in bookstores
now. The title speaks for itself. Watch out Dr. Phil. Girl
Blue has added CAPOEIRA to the program. This Afro-Brazilian
martial art form is OUT OF THIS WORLD. This class gets you
going with the drums and the music. Its fun and exciting.
The rhythm is gonna get ya! For more info visit our website
