I found this clip of an amazing Italian dancer, Valentina Manduchi, who is the winner of the International Oriental Dance Festival this year. She has a full time Bollywood dance group in Italy and I love the way she does all the facial expressions perfectly. Brought back great memories. 🙂
While looking for other videos of her I came across this Hoola Hoop Tribal Belly Dance performance (performed by another ‘Valentina’. I’m not such a big fan of just her dancing (and tend to question the ‘Belly Dancer of the Universe’ title in general), and am not too keen on the amount of leg shown at one point…but the hoola hoops are mesmerising! I love it, her dance suits the music perfectly and frames her isolations. VERY entertaining!
