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.
Hullo there! This piece was quite special because I have never danced in an all white costume. Ever. Black is actually my happy color, and I wear it every day, on stage and off. But last night's performance was an offering--a tribute to one of my greatest dancing idols: Maya Plisetskaya. The great Russian prima ballerina passed away on May 2, 2015 and my heart has been filled with sadness ever since. She was truly magnificent and truly an inspiration for my dance. For more information about her, click HERE and HERE.
I wear white to show my respect for one of the greatest dancers of the 20th century. Thank you, Madame, for a lifetime of inspiration and magic.
This is the place where I track future performances and announce updates in the Blackhoodygrrl world. There is also plenty of eye candy and general musings.
