Lumiere Brothers – The Serpentine Dance (c.1899)

 

Painted frame by frame in the last century, this early film is very dramatic. The dance was inspired by, but the film is not of Loie Fuller who is pictured bellow. Fuller was an early Modern Dance pioneer.

Student members of Chris and Mary’s TMCC class organized together to form hipSwitch over the summer. One early objective was to work at preparing for, and entering the Jewel of the Sierra Belly Dance Competition that was held in South Lake Tahoe last weekend. It was a lot of work, and not without some challenges but also some great rewards – achieving 2nd Place in the Troupe Category was a total honor!

But the most amazing part? Learning about working together towards a common purpose and realizing that we enjoy sharing what we love.
