Belly Dancer Tribute 3/19/12: Didem Kinali (Turkey). Is it wrong to mix dance styles like Turkish & Flamenco?

Didem1Belly Dancer Tribute 3/19/12: Didem Kinali (Kuştepe, Turkey)

I subscribe to many belly dance videos on YouTube and was going through my new videos today and caught a new video by one my favorite dancers in the world:  Didem Kinali.

I happened to view some of the comments on one of her YouTube videos and was a bit shocked at the complaints about her dancing to Flamenco style music,

Didem2Say what, is there a Dance Police out there who is saying thou must only dance to one dance style during one routine?  So if you are a Turkish dancer, your set must contain only Turkish music?  Or if you are an Egyptian dancer, your set must contain only Egyptian music?  Thou must not ever, never mix music style, for example using Greek & Turkish songs in the same set.  Or using Arabic & Lebanese music in the same set.

BLAH!  What ever happened to artistic license, individuality, freedom of (dance) speech?  Not to mention BOREDOM, only using one style of music or using the style of music set forth by the Dance Police?

I like to MIX things up.  If you are dancing at a Greek restaurant, what’s wrong with using both Greek & Turkish music?  What about songs like Amayaguena by the Trans Arabian Band that has elements of Spanish and Arabic style?  What we are not supposed to ever Didem3mix dance styles?

I love the Flamenco music and steps performed by Didem.  Rock on Didem, you are one of the best dancers in the WORLD!  Pay no attention to the “negative” comments by the naysaying Dance Police.   Keep on doing those great dances, using any dance style mix that you like!

The wait is over!  Tonight is the Season 14 premiere of Dancing with the Stars at 8/7 Central!  I can’t wait to see Steve Urkel dance!  Then Castle is doing a dance-related episode at 10/9 Central.  This will be fantastic night of dancing for any all dance styles that you love, whether it’s ballroom, bellydance, Turkish, Flamenco.  Dancing makes the world a better place to live in.
