Why fusion belly dance

The way I see all types of dance, is that you have to take away the thought of your own self importance and especially more so when your dancing together with others.  Your dancing to express something more into a moment.  For just the same as the Aesop fable of The Gnat and The Bull, you must put self importance right back in its place for the moment, just for during the dance and just get on with the dance.  Enjoy the moment, maybe have some fun and express with the audience to the music, not just perform like it is an ordeal.

I’m dancing later today with my daughter and we have our own style of dance just like any other dancers.¬† I’ve found my niche as a¬†fusion belly dancer and there will be a¬†dance (with puppets) for humour too.¬† Sometimes we¬†enjoy the dance moment¬†so much,¬†we’re often seen¬†laughing during a performance and even when we make mistakes too.¬† Our fusion belly dance combines several styles together and things outside of the usual belly dance sphere, which can be slightly more freestyle and ephemeral (never the same dance twice).¬†¬†Anyways, just like¬†all short lived creatures¬†we human beans and especially our self importance is pretty insignificant.¬† When we dance it is like¬†personifying an insect like a gnat, dragonfly or moth.¬† Unlike other wingless gutless creatures¬†we have learnt¬†how to¬†use¬†our wings what we have to¬†fly dance anywhere and¬†settle and fly again and settle‚Ķ arrive, feel better dancing and fly off again…¬†so just enjoy each others dance!¬† We all need to refuse to be dragged down by the gravity of this big bullies¬†era and even if you cannot physically fly little one, please¬†enjoy the dances of others vicariously.¬† Let the big static bulls of this world get on with¬†silly pride, in their prejudiced fettered self important existence elsewhere.
