Im having a severe headache..with all the riots and bombings. Better do some dancing to chill out..
I never like belly dancing (watching)..saw a life performance in Turkey some years a very small club.packed to the rim..mainly patronised by drooling old men and heavy mascara aunties..the tortured face of the aged dancer was pathetic..not helped by the thick make-up..and the enormous lumpy waist.On the other hand..salsa is alway a pleasure to watch and do..
In Dubai..i was traumatised once while watching the TV..not anymore though. In fact, I find it quite fascinating nowadays. It's the Miramar dance..This dance comes from Saudi Arabia. It is sometimes called a hair dance because the hair is worn long and loose and is swung from side to side and tossed in circles and figure 8's. The emphasis in movement is in the delicate footwork and in the upper body. If u ever see alive performance, which i have not but will love to..dont stand too close..
The other dance..mostly by the guys..commonly known as the bedouin or stick quite an acquired taste i must admit.A group of a row.. in white traditional robes carrying slender cane sticks..doing some basic limping steps..and moving their heads in unison.My first reaction was ??????? However, the melodious music and dance will slowly..and surely get into u.
Well, what are u waiting for? Guys, put on your dancing shoes and gals..put on your boots..and groove like Jessica Simpson..
