Some of my recent Youtube "research"

In which I share some of the videos of dancers I've taken a liking to.

I found out a couple of weeks ago that the Adult Learning Centre, where I teach of a Tuesday, had acquired a swanky new smart tv. Which meant that instead of playing dvds at our end of term video night, I could potentially hook up my laptop to the tv, and play video clips from my hard-drive. This immediately set me to wondering what the best use of this super duper new technology might be.

And my immediate thoughts were, the trouble with playing dvds is that essentially, I can only show my students those dancers who have already made it, who are sufficiently famous to be on the International Dance Scene and have got dvds made. What I would really love them to see is the current dancers of Egypt. Not Dina and Fifi (they've seen them plenty) but the dancers who are currently dancing in the clubs. I'd seen a few clips of Sofia, a dancer we saw in Cairo last year, and I thought it would be great to show her. That was my starting point, and since I have a tendency to use the right-hand column in YT to go off on video excursions, I ended up finding a whole load of dancers I fell right in love with (and not entirely knowing how I found them!).

Over the next few days I hope to share them here.

But for now, let's start off with Sofia. We saw her at the unknown nightclub (see here: http://beafarhana.livejournal.com/824684.html). She was luscious and very watchable. Well worth waiting up till 3.30 in the morning for.

But why am I telling you, when you could see for yourself?

Here's Sofia:

And one where you get to see all the legwork!

And she was in a movie, "Pussy-cat"

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

For your further viewing pleasure, especially as one of the vids I liked didn't allow embedding, you can check out my Sofia playlist.
