In honor of Goddess Cybele, Yvonne will be performing “Ismaouni”, a choreography by Suhiala Salimpour. Ismaouni is a choreography that represents a deep and solid powerful sense of earth and being. With the sound of cymbals and their magical significance in communication with the Goddess Cybele, we honor Cybele, a Phrygian Mother of the Gods.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Melanie presents NATARAJA!

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Melanie

will bring us

Nataraja

Mel 1 (1)

Melanie depicts Shiva as Nataraja – Lord of the Dance

 

As depicted in mid-dance in various ancient artworks, Nataraja is the god Shiva in a form where he experiences self-transcendence through dance.

In a ring of fire, Nataraja performs the Tandava, a sacred dance which presents the creation, nurturing, and the ultimate destruction of ALL there is.

  Melanie’s self-choreographed version of this rite is a blend of Bharatnatyam and tribal fusion bellydance.

Mel 2

Melanie as captured by The Dancers Eye

Melanie has been a bellydance and Bollywood performer in central Florida for over 15 years.

She is an enthusiastic performer and student of all kinds of dance, including tribal fusion, classical Indian dance, ballroom and gothic/theatrical styles.

Melanie frequently performs at various cultural and arts events, and she says that she is honored to bring her art to the stage at GODLIKE for you this year.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Obsidian Fox presents “US”

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Obsidian Fox

will manifest

“US”

 

Fox 1

Obsidian Fox captured by The Dancer’s Eye 

“Who are the real monsters?

Society’s outsiders, or our thoughts that lead to society creating these outsiders?

We label them subhuman. These innately human monsters are woven into the fabric of how we think and how we interact.

We take the upper hand and view ourselves as gods, but we are tethered together.

They are US”.

Fox 2.jpg

The GODLIKE show brings us Obsidian Fox from World Dance Orlando!

World Dance Orlando was established in the summer of 2018. Our experienced instructors teach a wide variety of dance styles across the central Florida area including Bellydance, Samba, Polynesian, Bollywood, Fusion, Heels, and much more!

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Danielle Boots presents ISIS!

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Danielle Boots

will bring us

The Mother Goddess Isis

isis2

Isis has made an appearance at every Black Lotus Kult performance, most recently at BLK Celebration 2018 in Chicago. Kindle Cimmerian’s performance helped illustrate Caroline Wise’s talk “The Blood Red Cord of Isis” (which caused a stir with the TSA, until the Goddess let them know that it was OK).

We are very excited to announce that the Isis-tradition continues through the skills of the lovely and talented Danielle Boots.

In reflecting about Isis, Danielle shared the following,

“She is the epitome of the divine feminine. She is the Protector. She is the Nurturer. She is the lover. She is the strong. She is the wise.  She is the Goddess Isis!”

Isis.jpg

Danielle Boots is a diverse dancer who has been dancing in the Central Florida area for the past 9 years. She loves the beauty, flow and grace of oriental dance, and the strong, luscious fluidity of tribal fusion. Both styles consume her heart whenever she dances. Danielle aims to capture your heart with her performance at GODLIKE – An Evocative Evening, inspired by the Mother, Lover, Protector, Healer – the Goddess Isis.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performer – Veronica Lynn presents QETESH

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Veronica Lynn

will bring us

Qetesh – Goddess of Sacred Ecstasy

Veronica Photographed by Barnacle Media

At this year’s GODLIKE show,  Veronica Lynn will take us back to the Bronze Age, by bringing Qetesh to the stage! Originally a Canaanite deity of love and desire, Qetesh gained popularity in New Kingdom-era Egypt as a goddess of sacred pleasure and fertility. While many depictions of Egyptian deities are in profile, Qetesh is seen facing forward, nude, riding on the back of a lion, with snakes in her left hand and lotus flowers in her right. That’s our kind of goddess!

Veronica Photographed by Texas Beauty Photography

Veronica Lynn

Based in Austin, TX Veronica Lynn will bring Qetesh to life at our GODLIKE show through a jazzy 1930’s modern dance/showgirl interpretation of this deity.

Veronica is an instructor, performer and costume designer, with a background in tribal fusion dance. She is deeply interested in the incorporation of historic dances and costuming into contemporary dance styles.

BLK Celebration 2019 Performers – Misha & the ShimmyBoom Tribe present HECATE

At BLK Celebration’s 2019’s GODLIKE show,

Misha & the ShimmyBoom Tribe

will bring us

Hecate – Maiden, Mother, and Crone

misha1.jpg

“In our dance we honor Hecate, for her bright shining light even in the darkest of times, her wisdom to embrace change, and her magical and mystical ways. Hecate reminds us to change and embrace transitions, don’t worry about the dust, or what others think of you, do the things you’ve always wanted to do, for you, embrace the changes that come with aging and be grateful you can still dance through life.

While our invocation of this Goddess honors her Greek form, she is a power that has been known to many cultures throughout the ages. She is the guardian of the crossroads, the woman who is both wise and wondering, shifting through all aspects of a woman’s journey. She is the dark Queen of Witches, Goddess of the Moon, and a guide in the Underworld, supporting other women, in the form of Persephone, even in the darkest of times. Her magic is legendary, and she has one foot in this world and one in the next as she has dominion over ghosts and spirits.”

 

misha2

Misha

Misha is the Director for Shimmyboom and Caravan Project Sarasota and teaches both regular classes and professional dance certifications in the Sarasota/Bradenton area as well as worldwide. She is a Priestess of the Sacred Earth, an Elemental Enchantress who speaks the ancient language of flowers and foxes, both in dance and visual art, to help people connect deeply with nature and find their wild souls. She combines her training in Shamanic energy work and storytelling together with over a decade of deep study in multiple forms of bellydance to create dances rich in movement, texture, and lore.

Misha will bring her ShimmyBoom Tribe to dance for us from Sarasota, Florida. This group of dancers of all ages and backgrounds gathers together to perform their own special sassy and spirited brand of improvisational tribal bellydance in the Gypsy Caravan format. Together they “speak” an intricate dance language that, once learned, allows dancers to communicate in the moment and improvise to the music, creating a beautiful dance that flows from the heart. Tribal bellydance is rooted in many different dance forms; watch closely and you will see familiar moves of bellydance along with inspiration from Flamenco and other world dances.
