Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Gone Not Around Any Longer by SISTAR19. They are a subgroup of the Korean girlband SISTAR, formed by lead singer Hyolynn (real name Kim Hyo Jung), and rapper Bora (full name Yoon Bora) in 2011. Soyou (real name Kang Ji Hyun) and Dasom (full name Kim Dasom) make up the rest of SISTAR.*

To date SISTAR19 have released two singles, their debut Ma Boy in May 2011 and Gone Not Around Any Longer (with a B-side called A Girl In Love) in January 2013 and a single album (like an EP) Gone Not Around Any Longer, which consists of 5 songs including the title track and Ma Boy. I'm not sure if they're active anymore. Maybe they're just concentrating on SISTAR for now.

*Korean names are written with the surname first.

P.S. Happy Bonfire Night to those in the UK and in other countries who celebrate! :)

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. :)
