Ankh Ma’at Ra Radiates Dance Performance Power— It’s Like Holding on to a Bare Electric Wire: You Can’t Let Go!

I just couldn’t pass up this opportunity to share a video of Ankh Ma’at Ra. A few seconds after the video begins, you’ll understand why I could not stop playing it over and over again. It’s mesmerizing. Let me know if you agree.

Last evening I went to a classical dance performance of “The Taming of the Shrew” Ballet in one of the most prestigious Opera Houses in the world. The production was a spectacle. There was no thought given to saving on the costumes and sets. On stage there was some of the best classical dancers that could be found in the world of dance. The sold out performance’s audience included persons whose total wealth could easily have been greater than that of Number 45. But when I compare the performances in this video to that of the classical ballet performance, I observed, there’s just no way “The Taming of the Shrew” Ballet could artistically compete with the enthusiasm and creativity found in this Ankh Ma’at Ra video. What do you think about Ankh Ma’at Ra.

Ankh Ma’at Ra: South African Gumboot dance, the gold mine workers were not allowed to talk to each other, so they communicated through boot, hand, and chest slaps. After slaving in the mines they would put together line dances and perform as an outlet.

If there seems to be no sound, look in the lower right hand corner of the screen and click on the sound button.
