The Real Stuff, Part 2

My teacher, the incomparable Cassandra Shore.

Cassandra's choreography for Jawaahir Dance Company: Ghawazee.

Tunisian Women’s dance (with vases on the heads).

I'm breaking you in so that you can finally see me dance - plus I have to figure a lot of things out. Thank you for your (im)patience, dance fans. ;-)

OK, I think Sadie was more fun to watch than Cassandra.

To each his own. ;-) There’s nothing like seeing Cassandra in person, though. This clip doesn’t bring out everything that she does with her face, her humor and sense of fun, and I admit it’s hard to see what she’s doing (I know what to look for). You’ll get to see what I mean soon.

You're just thinking "Sexy Sadie"!

Yes she was pretty sexy, but more than that the her precision was pretty incredible and it was very entertaining - I mean ultimately, and I am speaking form alaymans point of view, it's what you enjoy that relly matters.

You are correct - being there is quite different than seeing it on Youtube.

Well, I always say, you know what you like, so go with that!

There isn't more of Cassandra, which is too bad. One thing about those tapes of the festivals, the camera is above, so it tends to diminish the impact that one has at eye level... well, anyway, Sadie definitely utilizes "bigger" movements - I do, too. There are many styles.

Okay, as soon as I transfer my old tape onto DVD I can upload it to YouTube tomorrow or the next day. I was a relatively new student at the time...everyone BE KIND! ;-)
