Check out my new video! This has been my winter choreography piece - I wanted to go for intense and happy rather than intense and moody, as it's so much easier to do generic moody Tribal Fusion and beautiful and happy is always much nicer. It's been performed at theatre shows, bellydance events, burlesque nights and restaurants all winter long. The music is Crystallise by Lindsay Stirling. Enjoy!
The more I see of Slovenian dancer Manca Pavli the more I like her.
Here is a video of me performing Silver Poetry at Majma Bellydance Festival earlier this year. I have a love/hate relationship with my own videos, but having realised that the only stuff of me on YouTube is more than a year old (and out of date!) it's time to woman up and put some stuff into the internets.
Silver Poetry is a song by Digitonal, a glorious band my boyfriend introduced me to. I wanted to choreograph something to this song a year before this was filmed, however, it's such a touching and emotional piece of music I wussed out. I'm not a very touching or emotional person, and any touching- or emotional-ness is pretty hush-hush and ssssshhh so creating a choreography to this song was pretty scary for me.
I saw Anasma perform her tear-jerkingly beautiful piece A Life of Love five months before this performance, just after I had begun choreographing this piece, and her dance chased away all my wussy demons. My new mission was to make people cry with my dancing too.
I performed this piece three times over that winter, though I got no actual tears (dammit!!) I got a whole bunch of people close-to-tears, which I think is more than good enough for my first attempt.
