Just because I know Tarik would kill me - I won't mention what gesture just happens to be coincidentally choreographed into a Shemadan duette a certain fairly well-known female dancer and I are putting together right now! :lol: :dance:A good example, the thing where you use both hands to raise the hair in the back of the head. Okay, my hair is curly and short, so this would look silly on me. Secondly, even men who do have straight long hair do not do this. This is again a female gesture to show off the beauty of her hair and how long it is.
My instructor taught us an "Andalusian Skirt Dance" which was a lot of fun! Big, full, "Gypsy" skirts.I have also been trying to find a dance style that uses the gypsy skirt, but I am going up dead. I know it is out there, I saw a troupe use them, I just don't remember for what style.
It's an intriguing idea, but I feel dancing with blindfold or eyes closed is best done for oneself - it doesn't make a very good show. Most audiences would find it alienating, like a dance done in a mask, but more so.I thought I would add another though to this thread, it really just came to me. I think it is rather interesting.
I haven't practiced in awhile and school and work seem to kill it. Well, I have read so many books about people who are blind, but in fact are great at other skills.
Now please note this a random idea so be nice, please?
Has anyone ever thought of dancing with a blind fold? I mean the thought seems exotic. By blinding our eyes we put more trust in the movement and beat of the music.
I know it can't be done with many dances since they take much space and we need our sight to crash into a light of wall. What do all you think?
