Dance Videos

I thought it was time for another dance themed post so here are a couple of videos.:)

First of all this is a video from the World Bellydance Festival 2014. It's from the Closing Gala Night and is of a performance by Jamila, the founder of Bellydance Extraordinaire (BE), who run the festival. The style she's dancing is called Modern Baladi.


The 2015 competition takes places in Singapore from 28th May-2nd June and registration is open now. For more information visit the website:

And here's a video of the troupe Dance Precisions dancing to Ojos Asi by Shakira. My belly dance group BD4U have a dance to this. :) Dance Precisions aren't actually doing belly dance but they have belly dance themed costumes. :) I'm not sure what category this is.

Update 29/4/17: I had to replace the original video because it had been removed but this should be the same one.

Dance Precisions is a dance studio based in Anheim, Califorrnia in America. For more info check out their site:

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. :)
