First ever performance of our Bellingen River inspired belly dance piece we quickly put together for the Bellingen River Festival. I’m not much at video editing but I did my best and its a pretty clear HD picture. After waiting nearly 12 hours for the silly thing to upload I realised the bit at the start I thought I had cut out was included – opps! Thank you to Tess my gorgeous friend and student- she has only performed a few times before and does a great job. Thanks to Helen for videoing us even though she had never used the camera before – I handed her the camera just before we went on.
I am uploaded this because I said I would be a part of ’12 choreographies in 12 months dance challenge’ started by Kelly Lorraine Garland on facebook. I had had a similar thought to Kelly about a choreography challenge so when I heard about hers , I thought I would join in. I wanted to try and give myself a reason to finish off those half done choreographies, and to have a deadline to make a few new pieces for myself to perform – not just always doing group pieces for students. If you are inspired by the idea, please join us!
The dance is not perfect but I am very happy with it as an ‘outdoors, silk props, new piece’. Hope you enjoy it.
