    Oh, my dear Auntie Sadie's left hind leg, I must've had a longer day than I thought. That clip from Beat Girl was one of the silliest things I have ever seen. How on earth did she keep a straight face?

    I was sorry the clip ended when it did- I am curious about what the little girl was going to do with the feather duster to follow the phallic veil.

    I wouldn't expect Princess Farhana to be wearing a skirt in Burlesque.

    I would if she were belly dancing but hey ho it doesn't need to be a long skirt.
    I have pictures of Serena Wilson and Soheir Zaki wearing long skirts but you could hardly tell from the front they were wearing them at all.And as for Dina and Randa..the word short comes to mind and..... gravity defying bras.
    It isn't just about costuming. It's about 2 dance forms (both to be admired) that when you put them together, it gets very confusng and with a belly dancer the clothes, however few they may be..STAY ON!

    But then I keep getting told by Sapphira (don't I, dear?) what an old kill-joy I am. When it comes to leading the GP up the garden path about the two acts.... I am.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Fordiddenwhen it returns to Blackpool ( I loved it on film) !
    Belly dance while it is without doubt a sexy dance, it can be family friendly and it has a whole culture behind it.

    I dunno...I guess I figure that if people are hiring a burlesque dancer, and this is clearly a burlesque dancer page and schtick, then they will get many things vamped and stereotyped.

    I don't really have much to say to a burlesque dancer who sees the costumes of bellydance and sees an opportunity to create a campy "harem" character. Because they don't know any better, and likely their clientele doesn't either. But I get frustrated by bellydancers, who know damn well the damage it can do, and chooses to "fuse" it anyway...they DO know better, and make that choice to the detriment of the communtiy they claim to belong to.

    Surely it's a Siamese burlesque piece. Since most of the movements of burlesque are exaggerated BD, why mention BD at all. All it can be is an excuse to wear a pointy hat whilst gyrating!!!

    Never mind the pointy hat (ooh, wizard-fusion bellydance anyone?) - anyone else spotted what you can do with a spare couple of finger cymbals?
