Stunningly beautiful TED talk. He talks about the serpentine movements of Khmer classical dance and I feel such a kinship with him! We as belly dancers really strive for that serpentine look and style. I am very humbled and inspired by this video. Enjoy!
Please enjoy a snippet from my very first performance of 2017! YAAAAY! Not the best quality video, but a nice glimpse into what I am doing these days. This performance was part of an artists collective in Marin County and I'm very proud to be a participant. I am thrilled to be dancing (finally) with a vintage piece of assuit and I absolutely LOVE how it looks on stage and on camera. Although I do a tiny bit o' ballet in this piece, I find that slow, slinky tribal belly dance moves work quite well with The Dying Swan. I don't think I will ever get tired of this music.
'Tis rare when I post on this blog about things that are not related to dance. Nevertheless, I feel compelled to post this new trailer for my all-time favorite TV show ever. EVER. The X-Files is returning and I am ecstatic with happiness. I strongly identify with Mulder (which is hilarious because my husband strongly identifies with Scully), and I always have. There are very few fictional characters that stand out to me, but he does. On a grand scale. I could display a comprehensive bullet point list of all our similarities, but being a private, somewhat introverted individual, I'm afraid that would expose all my mysteries. I like to keep those mysteries intact.
The truth is out there.
This is the place where I track future performances and announce updates in the Blackhoodygrrl world. There is also bits of poetry, musings and eye candy, always keeping with the theme of Sacred Dance.
