    Why do you think she is a good belly dancer to watch. I find her technically so sharp yet she lacks the emotion of many Egyptian style dancers, a connection to the music and makes me feel tired watching her
    Mind you I haven't seen her live and that might be very different. I heard high praise of her from IBDC. Did you go?

    you dont even think about the
    technique, it just comes natural and then you will start to make it
    your own. For everyone, this time frame is diferent.
    All the best,
    SAdie
    her technique is a result of her passion for dance.

    Not just.... technique is the result of many years of practise practise and dedication.

    That's where I saw her too. Turns out she's pretty well known. I think she has great great muscle control, and dancing skill. Is it a style I personally would do? Not really. While I enjoy watching her do it, it's not for me.

    Whilst I find that she displays way more personality live than in a tiny vid - I still don't care much for her style. I like a dancer to play with the music and build in suspenseful (is that a word) pauses. With Sadie one thing just follows another so that I am impressed by her technical skill, but somehow it would be more impressive if she did way less.

    lorna Gow said that when she went to Cairo she found that she had too much technique and not enough musicality.

    Not only that, technique doesn't just come naturally for us all, even if we love the dance "passionately." I love bellydance, but klutziness comes all too naturally for me. I have to practice, practice, practice to become even acceptably good on a student level.

    fluidhips, what is it about Sadie's performance that you enjoy besides her technique and beauty? Is it her presentation? Personality? Costuming? Her interpretation of the music?

    I think it's that she can move unlike anyone I've ever seen
