On December first I had a Belly dance recital. I was in two completely different pieces.
First was the Oriental. This piece is a mix of belly, and ballet. Belly dance was influenced by the Russians When they took over Afghanistan. They added ballet elements.
The next piece is called a taqsim. It is an emotional piece. You don't follow counts you follow the musical lines. There is also floor work but I didn't get pictures of that.
So much fun!!!!
