Shimmied not stirred...

I was dancing at the Arabesque Nights James Bond Theme Night.

Yeah. I know. ME!

It's ok, I did two pieces, Nobody Does It Better from The Spy Who Loved Me, and En Rah Menek Ya Ain. So there was some Egyptian in there too!

I had a ball actually- I was channelling Pans People in Nobody Does It Better. Not much bellydancing in that one, I'm afraid. Lots of swishing about- it's a very melodic piece, very little in the way of accents and percussives. But I got some good shimmies in, I think. I don't know if I was lipsynching at all. I do hope not.

As for everyone else, I thought it was a bloody good show. There were three different versions of the James Bond theme done in Balkan stylee, one duet did it Tribal, Brixton Amar did it Rom Style, which obviously worked very well, with a clay pipe as a prop(!), and Ishtar did it Oriental. Stine's Diamonds are Forever was lush. And the final piece, an Austin Powers duet, was a hoot!

And I got to hang out backstage with some awesome dancers of course, which is always fun!
