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.

Then here's another to Do It To It by American R'n'B group/duo Cherish which was uploaded this month. Mackenzie (formerly in Dance Moms) features in this too. Apparently the video has caused controversy because some people think Mackenzie is too young to be doing some of the moves!

Finally I thought I'd end with a couple of saidi dance videos. I belly dance and I went to a stick dance workshop last month with Katie Holland. Saidi is a type of cane/stick dance from Upper Egypt. You can read more here:

This video is by Nadine and Selma who danced in the Oriental Carousel Show in Munich in 2016.

And this is a a dance by YANA & Ensemble. Some people have commented on YouTube that the music is shaabi not saidi, but others disagree. I don't know enough about it to comment, lol.

Hope you like the videos! :)

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…

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. :)
