Something different …

I like to sing, I sing in the bath, here’s a video of some improvised lyrics and melody, capella style:


Dream on, little lover in your lonely boat.
Dream on, little lover in your one man show.
There’s more than one way to play this one game and there are no losers at the end of the day.

I tend to sing in the bath. It is relaxing and helps me sort through my mind and wind down at the end of the day.

Nothing Old Nothing New, Just the Mind Lost & Confused

Nothing Old, Nothing New
Just your mind playing tricks
And your heart making ticks

Tick tock tick tock goes the sound of the clock
Tick tock tick tock goes the sound of your soul
Do you know just what you’re going for?
Or are you lost again?

Fun Belly Dance Intro piece to add to your performance!

Hello everyone! I found this nice royalty free song courtesy of Lion Free Music and I decided to create a fun Modern Belly Dance Choreography to it that you can easily add to your own performance.

So here it is:

If you do add this into a performance, send me a video so I can see what it looks like! I Love to see what other dancers create!

I really like royalty free music and I am currently looking for tracks which have Arabic Drumming and Rhythms on it so that I can choreograph something with more drum solo style movements. So far I have only found lots of very stereotypical sounding music that are Royalty Free. If you are a musician and will give me permission to use your music, let me know so I can create fun choreographies to share!

Sincerely,
Dimora

PS Happy Dancing!

Instructional Belly Dance Video : Sword

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I last posted. I have been working on dance troupe auditions and other aspects of life along with new videos!

I decided to create a video with my Favorite prop: the Balancing Sword! In my video I talk about getting used to the Sword and learning how to dance with it balanced on your head.

Let me know if this video was able to help you. Also stay tuned for Sword Dance Choreography to the song heard in the background of this video!

Till next time, Happy Dancing!

Elegant and Fluid Arm Movements and Dancing to the Music Within

Emotions direct our arms as we dance to the music within us ♥

In this Video I talk about how to create fluid and elegant arm movements to go with our dance.
Move the arms slowly and with energy as if pushing through water. Swim with your arms. Swim to the music within and around us.

When in doubt, either keep your arms in place or move them Slowly.
