Belly Dance + Hip Hop = Belly Hop?

This Fusion Friday, we have a saucy sampling of belly dance / hip hop fusion!

Picks up after the 2:00 minute mark when they actually start incorporating hip hop moves. Great moment: when they start miming double dutch. *shakes head and laughs* They’re not flawlessly coordinated with each other 100% of the time, but their routine is undeniably entertaining.

What do you think of the costumes? I’m not thrilled with the raggedy, seaweed look of the things trailing from their hips. Their decision to have four green and two red costumes is a nice touch to keep them from being too homogenous. But then they have rainbow tops… It’s a little all over the place, am I right?

Good choice of music, though. It’s not too fast, and it has a lot of interest. Dynamic with a really solid beat.
