BELLYDANCESPIRATION: MODERN DANCE


 

Yesterday I headed uptown to see my friend Shirae dance. She is part of a modern dance company directed by  Darnetha Lincoln M’Baye that works with Afro- contemporary styles. Shirae is an awesome dancer (which she proved to me last year when we went to a party and she got into a break dance battle lol), she’s been dancing since she was a kid, so I knew I was in for a good show. The group performed 3 different numbers, each with a different feeling. The choreography was beautiful, dynamic and captivating. As I was watching the dancers, I couldn’t help but think about how their sweeping arm movements, twists and spins, would translate into belly dance. I know a lot of belly dancers have a background in modern and ballet, but for those of us that don’t, it’s always cool to observe other forms of dance and get inspired!
