Name that Troupe!

So one of my pastimes is belly dancing, and the group of ladies I dance with have just formed their own troupe. Which is highly amusing, on any number of levels. We are very enthusiastic and it is my job to bring the flask.

Anyway, we're a splinter group of the pro-troupe, the Port Belly Project, named for Shreveport, LA, where we are based. We are going to be the student troupe, and we will occasionally dance with/fill in for the real troupe.

Our problem is that we need a name! I've already sicced a few people on the problem, but I would love more input.

Any suggestions?

I would like something funnier/non-serious. We're still belly dancers in the making, and we don't take ourselves too seriously. But I don't know how the others feel, so if you have a pretty name, throw it out there.

On a side note, for anyone in the Shreveport area, I'll be running a short workshop this Wed., at 11:00 AM, at LSUS, for the Write On Writer's group. The public is invited. Just email me at IHeartSelkies(at)gmail(dot)com for more information!

How about the "Belly Busters". For some reason, that's the first thing that came to my mind. And I haven't had my coffee yet either.

That's cute, Pat! I'll add it to the list for a vote.

And I meant "get." Man, it's that time of year.
