Zoe & Faisal at TribalCon 8

My new favorite! She gets better and better,  I didn't think that was possible. I mean her muscle control is ridiculous!!
I hope to one day be that dedicated to my body.

My Dream Job... I finally said it.

Right now,

This video is my dream job.

Yes, It would be so cool to backup dance for Britney Spears one day in a music video.I honestly think she is so amazing! I love her music it's so fun and positive!!

Dance in Music Videos. Not backup dance on tour--I said,... Dance in Music Videos!

It's got my love for modeling/cameras/lights/hair-makeup/costuming/cut-stop-redo i.e. directors direction/Physical Product...and dance. I think I feel theres a sense of accomplishment and "finished-ness" in photography/video opposed to performances. 

Thats so hard for me to say, this past few weeks have been torture. but for some reason, tonight it clicked.
And talking to my husband helped 110%, he made me take a step back and get out of my head.  I could never have picked myself back up without his encouragement. I'm so so blessed to have him. I'm taking a yoga/ballet class on Monday, and seeing where my future studio goes ;)

Belly Dancers of Film

How hot is she! I love this!!!! I hope one day I become casted as a belly dancer. or dancer at that on a movie.

Lindsey Pavao vs. Lee Koch: "Heart-Shaped Box"

Not dance, But A Beautiful Performance.
It sends chills down my spine to watch this duet.
I really wish iTunes had the duet. Because Lee killed that shit!!!!!

I loved Heart Shaped Box, nirvana original anyway, so to watch their interpretations was sooo interesting! Loved it!

dominique locke?

So who is the person behind this blog?
I suppose I havent formally introduced myself... My name is Dominique Locke.
I live in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA.
I started my first belly dance class in October 2010, after graduating from MCAD in Photography.
I honestly went to the class on a whim, I told myself, "if you hate this we'll pay for this class only, and you will never have to see the light of a dance studio ever again."
I found Rachel Brice on youtube, and I said "oh i need to learn this"
Its taken over ever since... At first I was really bitter about it, because I kinda felt like I was "cheating" on photography... But now I know I can't live with out dance.

My goal is to eventually create my own dance/music video. That has always been in my head since the photography era...

its hard to explain when youre in it.
but my blog is really to keep a log of everything that inspires me, and hopefully will inspire others as well...

I dont really know what people wanna hear in these things so, yea....

Metal means my life.

Metal reminds me that I existed somewhere in time before.

I feel more present. And always represented strength for me.
I promised and knew it would never leave me,
And every time I go back I feel more at home, a cocoon.

Metalhead at heart,
That is the whole reason I resonate with the slowness of tribal fusion style.
When ever I listened to dimmu I would always envision a woman moving slow dispite all the choas of the drums and sounds that surround metal,
But I never knew how to express that vision.

Dance will come full circle.
The beauty of metal will come full circle.
I promise.
