Hello – it’s me again! I thought I’d use this time to quickly post a belly dance fusion piece that I’ve fallen in love with and thought I ‘d share on this blog.
At the time of doing this piece, I was experimenting with my fan veil as well as my regular veils. Veil work has intimidated me in the past – but after taking a workshop at Dragonfly Studios in Toronto on veils – they became a prop I love to work with. The ladies taught me that instead of fighting with the veils, have them become an extension to your movement! I took this advise and performed with both the Fan Veils and a pair of Silk Veils in this veil improvisational piece. Even when the wind blew the veil where I didn’t want it to go, I worked with it so that it wouldn’t totally blow my performance.
Like Life – you have to roll with the punches, work with what you are given with. Compromise. Allow things to happen as you work through it. You never know — What intimidates you can become something you love to do!
I currently teach Bellydance at The Bent Willow, in Oshawa on Thursdays. If you are in the area and would like to learn (or even curious), drop in classes are welcome!
Life is meant to be Danced. Lived, and Loved.
