|| A theatrical fusion piece between two virtual strangers - Isidora and Ariellah, inspired by the Sumerian myth of Inanna’s descent through the 7 Gates of the Underworld, where she meets her dark sister, Ereshkigal.
Descent to the Underworld (by Isidora Hart)
The filmography leaves something to be desired, but the dance is really something.

Dancers and Bellydancers near Kansas City! Tomorrow, there is a really fantastic full-day workshop with Sera Solstice. Two classes with Sera and a show staring Sera in the evening (we also have a Tahitian dance and a hula class available between Sera’s classes). Details are here and you can buy tickets and see class details here.
Class sizes are still small so it’s a really great learning experience from a really fantastic dancer.

I adore this dance.

I WILL learn from this woman eventually!!! Her style of fusion and her grace just draws me to her.
Donna is a goddess.
Videos from this year’s Warrior Weekend are finally up and I want to talk to you about the Troupe’s director, Amy Jo.
I am so fucking proud to call this lady one of my very good friends. She’s amazing. If you want to watch someone that’s genuinely joyous when she dances and has the technical ability to back up the stuff she does on stage, you want to watch her.
tbh videos don’t do her justice, but this is one of my absolute favorite performances not just from her, but like ever. I don’t know what you think about bellydance in general — but this probably isn’t it.
(The lights are a little bright in the beginning, but they even out.)
Anyone in or near Kansas City should be aware that Fringe starts this week. I’ll be narrating a show at the Union Station City Stage four nights this week. Troupe Duende is doing their entire bellydance show based on the stages in the Hero’s Journey and it’s going to be FANTASTIC. Plus, I’m in it, so that’s a bonus right there. XD
So much pretty!! I love Zoe’s style. ^_^
