Weekly Music Video

Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of weeks. :) Today's video is by the Finnish gothic/symphonic metal band Nightwish. They've been together since 1996 and the original members were songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, singer Tarja Turunen and guitarist Emppu Vuorinen. Bassist and male vocalist Marco Hietala joined in 2002, replacing the original bassist Sami Vanska.  Tarja was basically kicked out of the band in 2005, in a letter which was also published on the website and  later replaced by Anette Olzon. Tarja has gone on to have a solo career and released three albums, a Christmas album called Henkäys Ikuisuudesta, My Winter Storm and What Lies Beneath. I prefer Tarja's vocals to Annette but I think Annette sounds alright. However I've just read that she has also left the band and they currently have a subsitute vocalist, Floor Jansen who used to be in the band After Forever. Nightwish have released 7 albums and their latest one is Imaginareum (2011). This video is for the song Nemo which was a single from their album Once (2004).

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

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. :)
