Dancing with streamers
Note: I liked this group so much I went back on Sunday afternoon - so this is from the 2nd day's performance.
I checked out the Gypsy Dance Theatre at the Texas Renaissance Festival (TRF) and immediately had my socks blown off. This group of belly dancers are incredible - not only are the individual stunningly photogenic but their dances are great. I caught part of several shows and each one was different. Great chemistry in this group.
The only downside of the entire event was the lighting - the daylight shows were in full, bright sunshine which created a lot of shadows and splotching - what a bummer - but all-in-all this was one of the best acts in the show.
I took this photo over the 6-7 November 2010 weekend and hope to go back again next year.
