Soon, people call me Alex.
I am french, leo, arabophile, and thanks to an improbable twist of life, married to a Serb and expatriate in Belgrade where I teach oriental dance…in Cyrillic.I can say all that without taking a breath, but you, are you still following ?
No, seriously, I learnt the language, and believe me, to evoke undulations, shimmys, and poignant emotions in a language you can draw with a ruler, it’s not given to everyone, and just for that, respect, read what I have to say !
Since the emergence of my Balkan adventures, I promise myself to take notes, to make indelible all those caviar pearls accumulated over the years. Almost 10, I just can’t believe it !!!
Status of things in 2003 : salsa is showing off , not a single party without cuban dehanchés, but no oriental dance on the horizon.In 2013 (almost), glitter has gained ground. My school, Nedjma, a star in arabic, never seems to empty, and the milky way ‘s spreading over neighboring countries.
Of course, there are filiations I claim more than others, but I must be honest, I am proud and happy with the success my mission as ambassador of the most beautiful dance in the world has.
I feel like telling you everything, why oriental dance, since when, against which prejudices do I have to crusade, what is my style, which inspirations feed it, which artistic metissage call me, etc…Ask me everything, I dream of this bridge between you and me, and I promise you lines and lines of delirant delight. Generally, I prefer curves, but for you, I will make any effort.
So I am expecting you, let’s meet,
