    Yup. Eartha rules.

    Me and dance buddy did Santa Baby several years ago, file under "not quite belly dance, wrong music" and note-to-self it is really hard to get belly dance moves to flow to "wrong" music IMO. Aaaand this year - 2 versions of Sugar Plum Fairy mushed together. . Whatever, everyone else gets to do random fusionery, and it's Chriiiiistmaaaaass. At least we aren't wearing pink tutus.

    I used to spend hours trying to find belly-danceable Christmas music for festive haflas, and mostly all I got out of it was being exposed to a lot of truly horrible music. Nowadays I would be more inclined to dance to something I liked, and Christmas it up with a green or red costume or a bit of tinsel.

    We also did a very silly class number to "Stop the Cavalry" once, which makes me smile every time I hear it now.

    And don't forget the Christmas hat.

    Well, I did the Christmas Party. There was mince pies, oranges and mulled cider; carol singing around the piano; a fantastic solo cellist; a 60/70s disco with the Cirque du Soleil "Worlds Apart" movie playing on a twelve foot backdrop (and what a jaw dropping show that is!!); and me. I refrained from dancing to 'Santa Baby', or 'Rocking Around the Christmas Tree', and stuck to up beat Arabic (Sahar & Hakim), and fulfilled the remit of getting everyone up on their feet and dancing to get the disco started.

    Next gig - a Jive Christmas Ball. I might wear a Christmas hat for that one.

    That sounds like a pretty good party all round, who needs a Christmas hat when there's mulled cider? And people up and dancing = a job well done. Congrats!

    Always enjoy hearing your twists on entertainment, Duvet. But don't you mean Raqqing Around the Christmas Tree?

    oh man I wish I had seen this earlier as I had a massive list of songs I could have given you.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    1. Beginning dancer. Knows nothing.
    2. Intermediate dancer. Knows everything. Too good to dance with beginners.
    3. Hotshot dancer. Too good to dance with anyone.
    4. Advanced dancer. Dances everything. Especially with beginners

    There's always this year Diana. I'd be interested to hear your ideas.
