Rumba Flamenca Moruna for Mediterranean TV (Spain)
OMG what a special performance this one was, dancing at the shores of the Mediterranean sea!.
I gladly spent several weeks working on this choreography to be performed at a major TV appearance.
Have you ever experienced the pleasure and the challenge of creating a choreography?
If you are anything like me, you want your choreographies to be rich and have variety.
Specially, for this choreography variety of steps was important to me, so I put together many of the moves that I teach on three different courses online: Zambra course, Feminine Flamenco and Gypsy Skirt Dance course.
The music you see me dance here is called “Anabalina.” I call this style Rumba Flamenca Moruna. I grew up with this type of Rumba Flamenca Moruna, which is a little known, exotic aspect of Flamenco. It is a Rumba Flamenca (think Gypsy Kings) with Moorish flavor.
I love this music because in it the connection between Spain and North Africa come together in a juicy way.
If I have ever done a conscious fusion of Flamenco and Bellydance, this is one of those times. Here are a few segments of the choreography :-)
