Many artists performing Fantasy Bellydance stay within the vocabulary and technique of traditional belly dance, while others blend it more liberally with modern dance, jazz, and world fusion. Other dancers draw on Tribal technique, aesthetics, and concepts to create fantasy themes and images.
Fantasy belly dance is not a technique or style fusion: It is an image fusion, a unity of themes and image aesthetics combined with diversity of technique. Fantasy belly dance reaches for images and themes unrelated to the ethnic origins of belly dance and to the image of a belly dancer as an entertainer. It embraces dance as theater and plays with spiritual, esoteric, medieval, Gothic, goddess, astrology, mythology, nature, magic, and other themes. Fantasy belly dance performances echo the plots of fantasy fiction, and borrow from the fantasy aesthetics developed by a number of subcultures - Rock, Gothic, Comix, Pagan, Renaissance/Medieval, and more.
This Fantasy Bellydance program features performances by New York City dancers Anasma, Autumn Ward, Ayshe, Blanca, Fayzah, Irina, Neon, Rayhana, Sarah Skinner, Sira, Tanna Valentine, and Uyum Dans (Elisheva and Kittarina), and brings you rich exotic world music by composers from the US, Europe, and Latin America.

I am a great fan of all of these ladies! I feel this was more modern dance than belly dance, although there are several really great belly dances. Read morePublished on May 21, 2009 by Shara of Desert Dance
