So Here’s the Deal:
There’s not much out there on Boubouka. She is a Greek belly dancer who became well known in the 50’s and 60’s. She made appearances in several movies during that time. In 1956 at the age of 18, she moved to NY with her parents to pursue her dance dreams. And that’s it – that’s all I know!
If you guys know more, please share!
This is why I think she is so interesting:
Boubouka didn’t miss a single musical cue, she picked up on everything and translated the music into beautiful intricate movements or slow sinewy undulations . She was very uninhibited but somehow balanced her more aggressive movements with grace. What do you think?
p.s. Happy New Year!!!!!!!
