Qetesh – Goddess of Sacred Ecstasy

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!

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.

The 8 ELEMENTS™ of Belly Dance

Having worked through many systems of artistic movement, we can safely declare Rachel Brice’s  8 Elements™ approach as a superior method to elucidate the key concepts of modern belly dance.

Kindle Cimmerian of Black Lotus Kult is proud to have received a Teaching Certification in this Datura Style™ approach.

She encourages those drawn to this art to consider this method in both their movement, and their spiritual practices.

Please view the following video (which includes scenes of Kindle) for more information…

“The 8 Elements™ approach encompasses biomechanics, vocabulary development, improvisation, choreography, musicality, practice development, tribal belly dance history, costuming, and performance preparation and experience.”
