Amel Tafsout




"Watching a performance by Amel Tafsout is a cathartic experience. Contrary to common stereotypes there are no mincing, shallow flirtations to be seen in her dance. She dances from the very core of herself. Sensuality is expressed as power and generosity. She has a direct stare, a presence that can come only from a true knowledge of herself and her art. She is a unique performer and there is no one else who dances like her."

I never heard about the woman but maybe one day I might watch her. Your describtion reminds me of "Samia Gamal", she used to be a master piece.

I love dancing actually. Not that I dance. Not at all. But I love the energy it creates and releases. It brings awareness in an absolutely sweet way.

My favourite dancer is Tahya for sure. Not only because she danced well, dunno, but her spirit and character, huge smile, just adds to her fire.

Samia gamal is a sweetheart.

wonderer,

the description is not mine. I found it on her website & liked it because I thought it was very apt. The woman really is magic.

haal,

I love dancing too. It's my favorite form of exercise. Would much rather take a dance class than go running or go to the gym.
