Bellydance Hoop Fusion
A video of Unity performing a fusion of Bellydance and Hooping. This is very much a Bellydance focused performance using the hoop as you would any other prop. Thumbs up for dancing with live musicians.
Another BellyHoop Fusion performance by Adelaide. At first, I saw mostly great Hooping with a couple of Bellydance moves thrown into the mix. But once I mentally removed the hoop, put her in a big flowy skirt and looked at it through Gypsy/Rom glasses I saw more Bellydance than at first glance. The big movements, sassy turns and kicks are there. Even a little hair tossing. The music choice is pretty obvious too. I like watching how captivated the audience is sitting in the background.
