What comes to mind when you think of a belly dancer?
Most of us have some idea or picture in our heads of an image or video we’ve seen of a belly dancer.
What is art to you? This is such a subjective medium and varies from person to person. Is it the painting on the wall, the sculpture on the table, the music on the radio, the movie on the screen, or the dancer on the stage? Is it Picasso, Michelangelo, Nirvana, Spielberg, or Baryshnikov? Not everyone is going to agree on their definition of art or what is considered art.
Whether it’s photos, printed art, videos or sculpture, the figure of a dancer is always beautiful and enchanting.
I have been performing for over 25 years and consider myself a performance artist.
Live performance is moving and breathing art. One of Edison’s first films ever on his new fangled video camera was a dancer.
Prints and Photos
Dancers have been a subject of art since the beginning of time. You can find vintage art in prints, photos, and tapestries.
You can probably tell on an entire website about belly dance that I have a bias for art in regard to dance. It feels me with joy when I do it and when I see it. Whether it’s in print, video or live. I think art should affect the audience in some way.
Feed back and comments are welcome. I would love to hear what you think about art in all its forms and how it makes you feel.
