Lampeter World Dance Festival

Lampeter World Dance Festival

Last weekend was the Lampeter World Dance Festival, there was free taster sessions for Flamenco, Tribal dance and Belly dance with a show on the Friday night.

The friday night had a wonderful atmosphere with lots of local dancers from around Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire performing. Zara came all the way from London to perform three dancers and brought her souk.

I performed a solo in my Gothic Lolita costume to Animus Vox by The Glitch Mob, it went very well appart from my bindi falling off at the beginning! I also had the opportunity to be part of Lyza Chthonia’s improvised Black Sheep Tribal group. Where we performed a slow and fast movements piece.

Batik Skirt – BlackSheep BellyDance

I have a Black Sheep Tribal Belly dance performance coming up and I realised that I didn’t have a nice full skirt to wear, so I decided that I’d have to make one and may as well do a complete costume while I was at it.

I’d heard a lot about 25 meter skirts and was intrigued to see what all the fuss was about. I assumed from the name it would have 25 meters worth of fabric, but with a little research it seems to be a 25 meter hem circumference making a very full skirt!

As this was my first skirt of this sort I had the idea of making a 10 meter one. Im quite short and thought I’d see what sort of effect this gave me as I was a little worried that 25 mtrs could swamp me.

I chose some pretty batik fabrics which I’d hem each tier with a black contrast band. I worked out all my measurements for meterage in each tier and used the Golden Ratio to have a natural looking ratio between each of the tier depths.

There was a lot of gathering and overlocking in this skirt!

The overall effect of the skirt is wonderful it has a lot of movement as the cotton is quite light in weight. The busyness of the fabric also adds to the movement and vibrance of the skirt.

Now onto the bra, falls and maybe a belt too!
