I never really do the traditional when I get a dance pack. You know the music, outfits etc.
I think mainly because I love to try dances out in different ways to see how mainstream or not you can make them. Being able to do that, reflects the true versatility of the animation and the outfits.
Todays dance video I wanted to use the outfit I was blogging and the traditional belly dance. Both together.
Personally I think they worked well together and I’m happy with the outcome. What do you think?

Mary Modern Egyptian Belly dance from Paragon Dance Animations at the UBER 8 Anniversary
Vol 2 – freestyled and performance captured by award-winning professional Belly Dancer Mary Winpenny.
Developed in Cairo 1920s, modern Egyptian Belly Dance or “Raqs Sharqi” has roots in Egyptian folkloric dances with some influence from western dance genres. In Egyptian style, the movements tend to be more internalized and smaller than other styles of belly dance. Egyptian Raqs include some ballet and ballroom dance influences, such as in footwork (for example the use of arabesque) and in stance and arm positions, although adapted to an oriental style.
This set focuses on core rhythms (as opposed to drum solo sets)
Originally performed to “Mesaytara” by Lamis Kan. Tempo = 100.0 BPM
