Three weeks ago we had our first rehearsal for the Aladdin Belly Dance Theatre Production. After which, I was feeling very excited, ready to go and inspired. Delilah brought the group together for our first session where we showcased our homework and developments. The theatre cast is made up of eight females all with different belly dance backgrounds. Some of the girls are classically belly dance trained whilst others specialise in tribal fusion and dark fusion. Despite our different disciplines I can see why Delilah 'the mummy' of the course and theatre production has chosen us, it's the performer within us all that unites us. After all this makes sense as it is a performance mastery course and not a technique mastery course. In our first session Delilah talked us through the do's & dont's of performance after which we showed our solos to the group. I really enjoyed watching the different performances and what each character has dreamed up and developed into a "belly" dance format.
I can see exactly why Delilah has chosen the cast as everyone seems to fit their roles perfectly from the scary and creepy to the mystical and powerful and to the down right cocky. Here is the list of dancers and their cast roles.
I can't wait to see how the roles and characters develop throughout the course. I'll keep you posted. Ooooooooo
