Vids Of The Day: Booty Dancing

Dancing with the booty. Or belly dancing, if you prefer (? perhaps Jadzia can educate me). Whatever they are, I keep seeing these on YouTube. I like them.

As my wife has been known to say...

Shake it
Don't break it
Took ya mama nine months
To make it


This one gets really good around 1:40

  1. ok, as a formally trained belly dancer I am going to hunt down number one and shove all her $5 amazon learn to belly dance DVDs sideways. I hate that! Keep your booty dance away from my belly dance! No wonder American's think belly dancers are strippers (ha ha Cary, yes I hear your gears a-grinding!) grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

  2. "Shimmy" on FitTV always puts a hitch in my channel surfing.

    (It's a belly dancing show.)

  7. They look like they're auditioning for rap videos. What high aspirations (ass gyrations?).

  10. Jadzia - I plead ignorance. I didn't want to call it booty dancing if it was belly dancing.

    Frank - And to think I doubted you. Smart man.

  11. Ho either needs more practice or less tequila.

    I don't know anything about belly dancing, but what #1 did was pretty impressive to me. She obviously has some kind of training I don't!

  12. Yeah, no matter what #1 is, it's a heck of a lot better than anything I can do.

    #2 sucks. Every kid in my homeroom can do better.

  13. #1 is the reason why reputable training DVDs say they are not meant to replace, but supplement, attendance in a class with a qualified teacher.

    She has incorporated some very basic belly dance moves, with very bad form. For as small as the moves are, her heels should be planted, not raised. She is not in a deep plie', therefore you see level changes. The flexing or bowing of the knees slightly outward as she dips is going to eventually ruin them and is a clear sign she is using her knees, rather than her oblique muscles to do some of the motions. Her undulations use thrust back shoulders and a thrusting pelvis... MAYBE in turkish bellydance, but thats pushing it. Hip drops LOCK on the opposite side: you should be able to stand next to a wall drop and pop the opposite hip and the wall hip would never touch the wall. Her myah just sucks - that's the figure eight thing shes doing at about 1 minute. Her heels should be down and her plie' should look like she's almost sitting down. Because she's focused on the BOOTY aspect, she's got a butt hike going that prevents her from a smooth transition from hip circle to myah... Plus she's got wolf foot going on from 55 on... no control of her ankles, they aren't under her knees and are very wobbly. I'll shut up now cuz I've only critiques 1:02 out of 3:55.

    Newp, this is booty dance, not belly dance.
