Weekly Music Video

This is Tale of the Sea Maid by Leaves' Eyes. They are a Norwegian/German gothic metal band. The current members are lead singer Liv Kristine, her husband Alexander Krull  who is also a vocalist,  guitarists Thorsten Bauer and Sander van der Meer, bass player JB van der Wal and drummer Felix Born. Liv, a former vocalist for the band Theatre of Tragedy,  formed Leaves' Eyes along with the members of Alexander's heavy metal band Atrocity in 2003. Liv Kristine has also released solo albums. Past members of Leaves' Eyes are guitarist Mathias Roderer, bassists Chris Lukhaup and Alla Fedynitch and drummers Martin Schmidt, Nicholas Barker, Moritz Neuner, Seven Antonopoulos and Roland Navratil. The band have released 4 albums, the most recent being Meredead (2011) and are working on a new one, Symphonies of the Night. A lot of their songs are based on  Nordic sagas and legends. Tale of The Seamaid is from their debut album Lovelorn (2004) and is one of my favourite songs. There isn't a video for it because it was never released as a single. I think the only single off Lovelorn was Into Your Light. That's a shame, because it's a good album. Most of their releases appears to be albums or EPs.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
