Inspiration: Orit Maftsir at Rakkas Istanbul

I saw Orit live at Shimmy in the City in 2012, and after seeing her dance I was very disappointed I didn’t take a workshop with her. Although I wasn’t sure I could get through a workshop, tbh. These days I would do it in a blink. I thought she was an excellent dancer, with lovely musicality, and great stage presence, and, dare I say it, I actually preferred her to Dina.

This is a great, fun shabi, and I think it shows her dancing quite while… take a look at those lovely fast precise shimmies, and how she’s engaging with her audience!
