Tori Types Thoughts
Tori's very average blog
First off - Jess and I would love to dance with you in two days!
We are blurry, but still pretty.
Tori Talks Greek
Greece - actually the entire Mediterranean - has a mystique and mythology to me. Yes, there is Greek mythology of course, but it is more than that. The beautiful land, the ancient ruins, the AMAZING food, the air of the people and the passionate art they create. It's almost too good to be true.
When I perform Greek style belly dance, I keep these images in my head. Many styles of folkloric dance often have specific aesthetics and characteristic movements that are definitive to the culture. It isn't quite so with the Greeks. There are two things I constantly keep in mind: one - am I listening to the music and two - am I having the best time of my life? These two things help keep me authentic to the style and the wonderful people that dance it with me.
I'd love to share some Greek belly dance with you sometime soon! Keep an eye on the gallery for videos.
Tori King is a belly dance artist, culture enthusiast and general weirdo. Is this a good biography? Do you like me yet? :-)
