Thursday Theater: Learning the Menopause Mambo


Hello my dear Chicklettes,

Today, I’d like to present to you, the Menopause Mambo.  This VERY easy dance is what we’re doing at our Hot Flash Mobs around the country (and the world).  It’s only 4 different steps and the song is less than three minutes long.  And, oh yeah, it’s super fun!

The Hot Flash Mobs are to celebrate Menopause Awareness Month (September) and World Menopause Day (October 18).  Rather than seeing menopause and perimenopause as something to be dreaded, Dr. Eve Agee and I came up with The Hot Flash Mobs as a way to appreciate this new time of creativity and power in a woman’s life and to demonstrate the amazing power of women getting together, supporting one another and having a really good time.

Flash mobs are forming in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Fayatteville, Arkansas and Chicago.  Plus, you can start a flash mob of your very own, wherever you live!  Just learn the dance, gather some friends and a video recorder (or cell phone that records video) and preserve your collective awesomeness for posterity!

So get out there and shake your tail feathers!

Love,

The Fat Chick
