Shimmy in the City - Show

I can't believe I wasn't going to go! My original thinking was that I've *seen* Dina live in Cairo before, so it's not like I *needed* to see her, and I haven't really got tons of money to fritter away. But when my students started saying they wanted to go, and I looked into getting a group discount booking together, I realised I had to go with them. I couldn't just give them the tickets and not turn up myself.

I'm SO glad I went! It was great!

Highlights for me were Orit's sha'abi, Aziza being an adorable bellydance princess and Khaled's peacock number! And ALL OF DINA!!!!

Lowlights for me were all three of Khazafy's pieces. He did a frankly unpleasant sha'abi duet, and a boring balletic duet, and a dull Sa'aidi stick piece.

Dina was the epitome of Stardom, and did about 45 minutes, with 4 different costumes, including Taht il Shebbak of course. I may be projecting, but I do think she danced particularly well, because she knew we were an audience of dancers who would appreciate it. I was transfixed. She is so damn watchable! So many moves and combos that make you think "woah, I must remember that one!" that you end up not remembering any of them! I'm going to have to spring for the video. Anyway, the main thing I took away from the evening was that I love Dina!!!
