    Default Sliding towards Fusion?

    For this years Shiver and Shimmy performance I decided to try dancing to modern pop style music. It was a challenge but a lot of fun to do. I hope I haven't strayed to far from the theme of the Forum and I hope you enjoy it... Jim

    You look like you're having a lovely time, which is really nice

    This is a bit of a pet peeve of mine, but do be careful about describing western pop music as 'modern', as it can imply that middle Eastern music is not modern or is old fashioned, which just isn't true.

    I liked that you included zilling!

    Nice. Really looks like you were enjoying yourself. But I was trying to think of an alternative belt! Maybe something with shiny shells - all leather and brass?

    It must be something to do with that relaxed feel and how you seemed to be enjoying it, but IMHO you are safely this side of the fusion dark side line. Not even a toe.

    ITA with Afrit on the belt - the outfit was very nicely put together and worked really well with the music and your style, is there a belt that'd go with the theme?

    You brightened up my morning, thank you.

    From the replies I'm picking up on a common theme that seems to be coming through..... That I was really enjoying performing.

    I feel I've progressed from the first time I soloed and was almost overwhelmed by the experience... excited, nervous...worried.... to where I am now.

    Yes... I was enjoying the moment.... but thinking about it there are a lot of reasons why...

    I knew that the crowd would be friendly... there were alot of dancers in the crowd who I knew and have become friends with over the years...

    I was very familiar with the music... had it signposted for the changes... was trying to improv so wasn't tied into a choreography that I had to worry about...

    I was happy with my costume and how it looked... but I will think hard about a new style belt.. (thanks)

    But probably the biggest factor was my attitude before I went on stage... I don't perform very often so when I do it is special to me.... my thoughts are that this is just like Christmas... a time to be happy... enjoy yourself and share with others...

    And it was fun....

    Thanks again for the replies... Jim
