BELLY DANCE – RAQS SHARQI

I would say that my life is more complete because of this dance.  This did not come naturally to me. I am half Chilean, half American and live in Sweden. Middle eastern music, dance and tradition are not in my blood, but the passion of the music is absolute, It really feeds my soul.

About the dance: The term “Belly dance” is a misnomer as every part of the body is involved in the dance. The most featured body part in raqs sharqi being the hips. Belly dance takes many different forms depending on country and region, both in costume and dance style.

Göran Magnusson took these photos of me in an old barn (est. 1850) during the Småland-gathering in May. I also did a small performance that Sandra Hila was kind enough to record. The quality is not the best but you are welcome to take a look.

Our vacation this year takes us to egypt. A journey full of wonders: The great pyramids, the intimidating Sphinx, the museums, temples etc. I can’t wait, hi hi hi.

Wish you all a beautiful summer. See you soon : )

    Hej!

    Jag fann länken hit via Facebook (Jolle´s inlägg på din sida).

    Du är så begåvad och vacker.! ☺
    Så roligt att se din video här.
    Jag har haft en dröm i många år om att börja dansa orientalisk dans men av olika anledningar har det inte blivit av förrän nu!
    I onsdags tog jag min första lektion för nybörjare, på Layali Orientaliska Dansakademi. ☺
    Önskar dig en fin höst. Vi ses säkert ute i vimlet nån gång.
    Kram!

    • Tack snälla Birgitta! Vad roligt att du har börjat dansa. Du kommer att älska det, men ge det lite tid. Första terminen kan det kännas lite svårt …men efter ett år så är du helt fast. Så ge det en chans.

      Ha en underbar höst du med och du ..tack för komplimangen : )

      Kram Tallee
