Cassandra Fox, a Canadian-Jamaican belly dancer, recently posted her first dance video since injuring her ankle a few months ago. To her astonishment, it has been viewed 75 million times on Facebook. posted by Johnny Wallflower (14 comments total) 22 users marked this as a favorite
I used to be friendly with one of Toronto's most-loved belly dance teachers and as a result witnessed many a dance. Cassandra is fantastic.

The sheer joy on her face is wonderful though I focus on her dancing - she is mesmerizing!

Boy, somehow, without seeing the poster, I knew this was a JohnnyW joint... Happy, harmless, good-natured...

I wouldn't have said twerking exactly, but there was a distinct Afro-Caribbean air to part of the routine.

The skill and control it takes to do that is amazing to me.

Oh wooooowwww that was amazing! I was mesmerized by her ability to get her body parts moving independently. It makes me miss the belly dance/bhangra fitness classes I used to take.

What a spectacular human being! Thanks Johnny, saw this at 7am and I'm wide awake now!

Holy hell, what a smile and what moves! I want to be at a wedding with her and not know many people and be drinking their booze and eating their food and dancing like it’s 1999.

Infectiously joyful and wow, what a way to move. Her head stayed in the same place the entire time too. Amazing.

What an amazing athlete and artist! Her smile defines joy. I could not help smiling with her. The video bears watching several times--her subtle moves that seem to comment on the music--the way she is having a conversation with it using her body, is just mind-boggling.

Now that is a lot of talent. Yes, indeed.
