Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Within My World by Michael McCarthy. Classical isn't my favourite music genre but I do like some songs and I used to watch the TV channel Classic FM sometimes. I saw the video on there. It's a song from Dracula the musical. (I never knew it was from Dracula, I thought the video and song were weird but didn't know the actual storyline!).

Michael McCarthy is an Irish singer who has been performing since he was 15. He started his career by performing lead roles at the Cork Opera House. Michael has been in many concerts and theatre productions since, and has released 3 CDs, Broadway, Living For The Moment and You're Still You. He has also acted in films and TV programmes, including The 10th Kingdom and Jesus Christ Superstar.

Within My World is on the Dracula album by Sang de Vie (2007). If you're interested you can buy it here: Dracula on Amazon

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. :)
