Like many Witchy women, I have a deep and abiding love of American bellydance, in all its myriad forms. I had the great fortune, from 2005 to 2008, to be involved with a group of women who were part coven, part dance troupe. We created rituals using the medium of dance, specifically bellydance.
Our first full ritual was a Goddess-inspired dance. We had an opening and a closing, and different configurations of us dance four different Goddess dances in the middle. The videos above show our Maiden, Mother, Crone dance and our Closing.
Our second ritual was Elemental. We had plans for more ritual dances, and we've been excited to learn that other dancers have started doing very similar work.
