Gypsy Underground dancer performing (IMG_9743a)
Gypsy Underground is the collective name of various belly dance groups in the Anchorage area. They perform at the annual Forest Fair in Girdwood, Alaska, about 30 miles south of Anchorage. This show is one of the highlights of the Fair. This year the show was incredible with lovely graceful dancers, colorful and dazzling outfits, and even good weather for a change.
I've always loved shooting belly dancers and working with these ladies proves that life is good!
I took this photo over the 4th of July weekend, 2011.
