Med Fest was fabulous yesterday! It was belly dancing heaven! There were performers non-stop on two stages, all day long. And much to my surprise, alexandrrrrra's dancing group included a male belly dancer! Watching a long haired boy in eyeliner doing those moves made me weak in the knees! I damn near fainted. Here's a pic, you can see him on the left.
alexandrrrrra and gargoylettelc were fabulous and I'll be posting a link to a video later (friends only).
One of the things I noticed during the performances was that a heck of a lot of the dancers were gals in their 40's, 50's, 60's and possibly later. And all of them looked beautiful and sexy up there on stage! I think women are discovering belly dancing later in life as a way to feel sexy and beautiful, and I love that! I also noticed that since I've started up with belly dancing lessons again lately, a lot of the dancing is completely demystified for me. I used to look in awe at belly dancing as a flow of amazing and impossible moves. Now I see them as broken down series of moves put together one after the other in a way that I'm sure I can do soon. Yay!
