I say, ‘I am fat.’ He says, ‘No, you are beautiful.’ I wonder why I cannot be both.
10 Honest Thoughts on Being Loved by a Skinny Boy - Rachel Wiley
God, this shit just gave me chillz. Love love love.
Our dance club president posted this video the other day, and it delighted me so much it nearly made me cry. As a big girl, one doesn’t tend to see many examples of performers who look like you on stage; much less those who are beautiful, talented, polished & wondermous, and who really do make you proud to be just what you are- a curvy lady… So this performance really hit home for me. :)
I love her exuberance, the sharpness of her movements, her expressions, and her animated, delightful energy. She has SUCH a sense of fun here, as well as awesome showmanship! Plus, she looks truly amazing & polished in her gorgeous red costume, and her whole countenance is vibrant & alive. ^_^ (Not tired and droopy- which are characteristics that can plague dancers of ALL sizes, but which may take a much greater toll on a big dancer’s performance; and give some unknowing audience members the idea that we’re all just worn out & lacking in overall stamina & energy.)
Plus the interplay between her and the drummer is a riot, and exactly like what I’ve been taught should exist between a dancer and his/her drummer. :) She connects with both audience and musicians, and that seriously rocks. ^_^
So what do you think of her work? Her appearance? I think she’s gorgeous, and as an example to other fluffy dancers everywhere, I find this video heartening & inspiring as hell. :) How ‘bout you?
Perfect commentary, really. All I can say is, I love this performance! I feel so much joy watching her dance. -Corinne
Second belly-dancing related thing I’ve reblogged today! I am in love.
My first reaction was: “I wish I could do that.”
I probably could, in my room or privately with some belly-dancing babes, but definitely not on stage - unless I somehow find the antidote to extreme performance anxiety.
I am completely mesmerized by her belly.
