I was there at the Bohemian Underground Turkey Teaser… I am soooo happy to see this performance got posted! This, and one other performance (a more traditional middle eastern dancer), were my favorites. I can’t tell you what it felt like to be there in person, watching her dance, It almost made me cry, I literally had to hold back tears. She was like “gumbi”/total elastic, which fit so well with the song, as if her bones were actually cracking and breaking… And she totally encompassed this song, she was the song… I did not see one disconnect. Not to mention the song is so beautiful. I truly crown her as my number 1 favorite belly dancer I’ve seen from MN. I first found her videos on youtube, and I could tell she was very talented – MNPride, and I had no idea she was going to perform at the Turkey Teaser. And she stepped out and I was sooo happy….. I guess you could say this was one of those, what they call “magical” performances for me… And its sooooo exciting to hear that this was improv, god, I feel like “yessss improv IS amazing, and Now I have 100% proof” I hope to get to see her perform again soon.
My beautiful teacher,
this gives me chills…
