Belly Nouveau: A Tribal Spectacular!
February 27, 2013 § 3 Comments
My troupe produced our first full-length show a couple weeks ago. It was really our troupe director, Sadie Calderon and another local dancer, Lauren Martinez Burr who did most of the work with booking a location, inviting guest dancers and creating the lineup, finding tech people, making tickets and programs… The rest of us assisted with opinions, ticket sales, costume making, and choreographies. It was a lot of fun and quite successful! We sold out! It wasn’t a ginormous theater, but it is still exciting to sell out your first show!
It was a busy, busy month leading up to the show! It’s a lot of hard work, but it was totally worth it and I’d like to put on another one sometime. However, now that we’re done, I’m looking forward to a little more down time.
Here are the two dances I had the most to do with creating. The first is my solo, which is my own tribaret choreography, and the second is a tribal sword duet that I co-choreographed with the other dancer, Ally Lowry.
If you feel so inclined, you can watch the entire show (or just parts) here. Desert Darlings performed several numbers and the guest dancers were all wonderful! There is a lot of great talent here in Albuquerque!

I can’t stop watching your solo. I showed it to my boyfriend, who is bored of watching the local bellydancers I drag him to see, and he said: “Now, this is entertaining, her movements are so fluid, not all that jerking and popping. This is what you should dance like.”I just thought I would let you know, I have watched your video five times today. I wish I could dance like that.
Thank you so much! What a nice compliment! I worked really hard on this choreography. I’m glad you like it!
