12 Choreographies in 12 months belly dance challenge

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.

    Beautiful. Perfect for the the festival, and you two looked gorgeous. It was lovely to watch the dance this time instead of what was happening with the camera 😉
