Well I'm sure all of you are just sitting around your home waiting with baited breath to not only hear about my solo, but see a video as well! Well you don't have to wait any longer...lol.
So a little bit of info the choreography was all done by me, myself, and I. So if I don't like the dance I have no one to blame but myself. If you don't like the choreography well I guess you can complain to me...lol. This was my very FIRST belly dance solo. Well actually I guess the Belly Dance police would call it a fusion as I didn't use Middle Eastern music. Trust me there is a Belly Dance police out there...lol, and they are very vocal, and VERY opinionated. I'm happy that my teacher is okay with fuisng Belly Dance with other styles of music!
So as I said this is my first solo, my first taste at choreography. I noticed while watching the video I did make a few mistakes, and chest isolations need some work on them. At one point i was to be doing a hip circle, and bending my knees going straight down, and ooops almost fell over. Other than a few things I know I could do better I'm pretty happy with it.
Saturday night was fun, but the crowd was soooo quiet. It is considered good manners at a hafla to cheer, clap and make lots of noise. The dancers actually feed off of it. Other than the little girls my solo got some of the loudest response from the crowd. I have to admit it is a very different feeling to be up there all by myself on the stage.
Well I hope you guys enjoy it, and if not then oh well....lol.
So the music is Harry Belafonte, 'Jump in the Line.'
