(This poem doesnít fit most of the categories listed, but I hope someone with a musical ear would be able to put music to these verses. The dancer was using her God-given talents to move to music by a composer who used his God-given gift to produce what has become an international classic.)
Sinuous grace, movement of hip and waist,
Arms uplifted, stretched outwards,
Embrace and hold.
Now, rigid body relaxes, thrusts forward,
Shoulders raised, legs taut and still
Fixed in a stance;
One leg kicks and enfolds,
Poised for the dance.
Bewitching and exotic, hands entwine,
Compelling strains of music push
The silhouette of dancer in a rush
Across the stage, grand in its vastness.
Miniature form a contrast,
As melodious strings rise
The Scheherezade is poised
To tell her story in dance.
Arms an overture of appeal,
First right, pulled back,
Then left, now slack.
Swaying body pulsates
To punctuated rhythm,
Jerks into staccato movement.
Petite Salome writhes, glides,
Without veils; wriggles, shakes
Across the stage she makes
Sensuous contact with the orchestra playing
In response to kinetic energy.
Captivated by her electric timing,
Choreographing her own paces
Through their original rendition.
Music and dancer harmoniously blending,
Audience entranced, mesmerized,
Beholding the spectacular performance
Of this graceful figure in complete abandon.
It was neither the tango, nor the flamenco,
Radio City, New York, was applauding so.
No, no. The petite dancer was thrilling
Her audience to the captivating
Music of Ravelís Bolero.
