flow ...

Video of my friend Jessica and her troupe belly dancing. She's the one in orange. I have to say this woman has developed into a lovely dancer over the years. She's really a joy to watch.

Those of you who don't know much about Tribal Fusion Belly dance - it's completely improved. The troupe learns and rehearses basic moves and combinations but it is the leader (the dancer in front) who decides what moves to do and cues the other dancers. Can't pick out the cues? That's the point. They are often very subtle, a roll of the hand, dip of a shoulder, extension of an's very intoxicating.

If you have a chance to see a troupe perform live, I highly recommend it.

Happy shimmying!
