I just wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive. I've moved from Virginia to Alaska, for my job. For my non-US friends, thats a move of about 4800 miles.
All is well, and I will be about more often.
Simple, classy, but fun to watch
I know that a lot of us dont like all-wings performances (I am one), but this really is good. She's got an excellent command of the wings as well as artistry and visual appeal of the costume choice combined with the wings. It...
I was wondering if you do anything special when you are learning your music. One of my fellow dancers, the lovely Ameena (a member here) showed me some handy things. I was curious what, if anything, you all do.
Just a question for everyone, regarding their hafla performances. Do you have a narrated script for every one of them? A flow chart of who, what, and when, certainly, but as far as someone reading something to the audience?
Last night, I attended their Hafla, and had such a good time. I got to see our own Anala dance (shes so darn cute) and others that I had not seen in awhile. Mother Nature cooperated, (there were doubts, early on) and the food was lovely. Debby West is always fun to watch, a brand new dancer had...
Hi everyone. I am in search of some costuming advice. I recently bought these
They are nice costumes and I like them. However, they are a little more revealing than my better half is comfortable with, and honestly, the silver one is more than I am comfortable with. In an effort to have a...
In searching for some of To The Earth's videos (a great tribal group here in VA) I meandered across the video; a compilation of various artists' floor work. Some of it is very good, some of it is awful. But look at minute 1:01 to 1:11. Now granted, doing three of those kind of killed the "Wow!!"...
Does anyone know where to get the bodystockings that look like you have tattoos? They are nude, but for the patterns? I saw one on one of the tribal girls and she said she got it at Hot Topic but I cant find any.
In a thread I was reading last night, one of the things that came up was a request to learn more about the culture, interactions, etc. I would have posted it underneath that, but my kids' father has brought me the Kuwait Crud, and I was medicated, thus no longer remember what thread it was. That...
Just had to share-
Somehow I missed 1 PE credit that I need to graduate. I work 40 hours a week, carry 20 credits in a graduating semester, am a single parent, and dance with a group. I simply do not have time to take any more classes. I talked to the department director, and she said that I...
I am looking to help out a colleague with some information about this photograph.
It is a plate photograph, placing it early 20th century. The information that she has is as follows-
Title: Dancer wearing Egyptian-look costume with wings reaching to the...
We've all had our heart broken, I'm sure. How do you get through it? While I am not going to bore you with all the details, I promise, lets just say that mine is very much broken, started to heal up, and last night got re-shredded. I know the old "time heals all wounds" bit, but I am looking for...
Good morning everyone,
Over the weekend, I was at a school showing. Lots of wonderful dancers, a few things that I imagined us all sitting in the back, saying "Wow, did she really just do that...???" Dance to contemporary American pop song with zero Middle Eastern influence...A'isha, if I'd...
