Every community is different; I have know some incredibly peppy "goths". So much for reality and stereotypes matching up!de Sage, your comments are fantastic but as someone who dabbled with Goth style in my high school days (I was never a very hard core Goth, just could not take it that seriously ) it seemed to me that Goth subculture is not exactly encouraging of sunny dispositions.
I couldn't get the first one to load, and I liked the second one. It is well produced, there is actually a lot of belly dance movement, and it looks like a couple of the dancers have some jazz and/or hip hop training.Heyas,
I came across this clip, and was wondering if this is gothic belly dance? I don't actually know what Gothic Belly dance is to be honest.
I used to think Rachel Brices vesion was a bit gothic, but someone said to me it was Tribal Fusion with industrial music. If any body can explain to me what gothic belly dance is that would be nice.
I think I like the second better though.
Hi Moon,I watched the performance of Jehan at the website (see Amulya's link) and I although I can only watch it in a very "shaky" way here and without sound, I agree with you that this dance was too far away from bellydance. However, I think not only Jehan is to be blamed but also the persons who made and sold this gothic bellydance DVD. They should have placed some kind of warning on the cover that there is a performance on it which is not suitable for young children to watch and can be shocky for some persons.
As soon as I reach 500, you should all have a piece of the virtual cake I'm going to post
Hahahah sounds cool, really. However a few problems:recnadocir said:Hi Moon,
Cake would be nice, but I'd rather have a round trip airfare to Amsterdam- then we could hang out, you could show me the sites, we could put on a show!
Ah what else I wanted to say GOTHIC ME dance is a style of theatrical Elegance, drama and intrigue. An art form of dark allure and mysterious sensuality. Ah isnt ME dance that also.
