Now THIS is extremely interesting!!!
That is fantastic that you are able to look at a dancer and tell automatically what side they lean to.
If you don't mind me asking. What is it about what he did in the link that made you come to that conclusion?
I'm trying to see the ''oriental side'' in tribal fusion performance, but can't really link the two together visually.
Thank you for any help on this!
I'm relocating interstate in like hours so I really can't even begin to respond to this the way that I want to, but I will try.
My answer (in short) is his posture, motion, and emotional response to the music. Which isn't to say that tribal doesn't have these things, just that they are different. And how is not an easy answer, but something that is learned from watching ALL THE DANCING!
I saw this video clip on another forum and am deeply moved by it.
I positively love the way he dances. Can someone tell me what style it is he is doing? Is this Baladi/Egyptian too or no? He looks very different compared to other Egyptian male dancers. I must learn his sensual style.
He's doing what I would call modern oriental. Others might just call it Egyptian style. Tito is highly regarded - you have good taste.
