Her dance style:
“I like to use an interpretive style, put on stage the skin-deep feelings that I find in the music and put me to the surface. When performing, I also like to create a character and make her alive while the music sounds, no matter if I use rock-metal music or any other genre. For me, music has its own soul.”
I especially love to deep into the dark side of the human being, which does not mean necessarily the bad one. The dark side is what is hidden.
“I danced to several rock-music styles: AC / DC (hard rock) at a charity gala, Marilyn Manson (industrial metal) in Madrid Shams competition, Rammstein (industrial metal) at some BellyRock, Metallica (trash metal)… I normally choose songs that inspire me to dance.”
Her artistic point of view:
“Dancing using rock-metal music is easier for me because it is the musical genre that makes me feel more comfortable. The big problem is that there are few rock-metal dancers, especially if we make the comparison with other musical genres.”
In the begging, people danced to rock & roll and it was established as a dance style, but it did not evolve along with the musical genre.
There are few people who dance this style of music, so I like to have them in mind when creating my own work. Teardrop, from Girona, is a great dancer, a great source of inspiration and a great leader in this style. Darkstar in London is also working on it, Morgana sometimes choreograph this musical genre. Chandra was also a great teacher for me in this field, of course, all the people who make BellyRock.
Maridark, producer of BellyRock show:
I organize BellyRock because I wish rock-metal dancers make a place for ourselves in the world of Tribal Fusion. We are many dancers we like dancing to rock-metal music and we need our space.
Working with rock-metal bands:
“I have worked with the Rock Association of Rivas Vaciamadrid. I felt very comfortable working with them, and also all dance colleagues who accompanied me.”
Our dance style is under development and we need mutual collaboration of musicians-dancers.
Maridark, where to find her?
