Wednesday Inspiration: Aziza of Cairo

Today's clip is by the gorgeous dancer Aziza of Cairo (not be be confused with the American belly dancer Aziza).  This is a beautiful baladi taksim and drum solo.  

As I always like to point out about the Egyptian dancers, she does not over-dance it.  She creates interest and drama by choosing which parts of the music she feels like responding to.  She is so strong and so grounded.  I think this is a riveting performance.

Aziza of Cairo, 2010

Hope you enjoyed that as much as I did!!  I love her dancing and will have another, longer post on her in the near future.

I hope everyone is enjoying summer.  It's hard to believe that registration for Fall 2016 classes will be here in just a couple of weeks, but it will!  Updates are in the works for my Classes page, but you can always contact me for info if you can't wait until then ;).

Happy dancing,
