Vintage Belly Dance Brunch Performance

Hello, lovelies.  Last month, the ladies and I performed for the Sahara Dance Vintage Belly Dance Brunch at the Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club.  This dance was inspired by flamenco dance, and our costumes and music reflect this influence.  

First, here’s my makeup and costume for this performance.  I missed wearing my usual bindis, big hair, and over-the-top accessories, but since the theme was flamenco dance, I had to do without them.  I wore a big ass flower to make up for my lack of accessories.

 

 

 

Here are the ladies of Raquettes Amira

The performance went pretty well.  It was a faster piece than we’re used to, but I think we pulled it off nicely.  I still need to work on my arms and posture. Sigh.

I’ve included a video of our performance, courtesy of Sahara Dance Productions.  I hope you all enjoy it.  This Spring, we’ll be dancing with swords!  It’s been 4 years since I last danced with a sword, so I’m very excited about the Spring show.  Stay tuned for more belly dance posts.

Love & Shimmies,

Dasia Denise
