When you close your eyes and listen to Katy Perry's song Dark Horse, you can feel her smooth flowing voice mixed in between the sharp & edgy beats. The song feels like the perfect modern American belly dance song. Obviously Katy felt the same, because she jumped in her crazy candy filled way-way back machine & created an ancient Egyptian themed music video complete w/ fabulous Egyptian costuming, lots of tutting *), camels & omis. The video and the song inspired us to make a Dark Horse choreography that combines ancient temple style tutting and other innovative moves from Katy's video w/ a cool, dark, sexy modern belly dance vibe. Are you ready for a perfect storm? We hope so, because this dance is comin' at you like a dark horse!

*) Tutting: Let's go old school ... really, really old school & learn how to do the ancient, original style of Tutting -- a style of ancient Egyptian dancing that is depicted in the paintings of pharaonic & temple dancers in the tombs of the great Pharaohs. Oh, but it won't be all "old school," as we will explore ways to fuse ancient tutting w/ modern belly dance pops, locks & flows. We will also learn cool & innovative transitions that bring it all together w/ a smoothness that is a signature of Nazeem Allayl belly dance.
