New music for an ancient dance! Theodora is a lively belly dance tune is a 4/4 beledi; fine music to accompany an entry dance as well as the section following the veil dance in the American Cabaret routine. It can be accompanied by an improvising drummer familiar with belly dance rhythms. The form of this beledi tune is A-B-A-C-A-D-A, with each section repeating. This music would also be enjoyable for any violinist interested in exploring world music genres. The music goes up to third position on the violin. If you are interesting in more original music for belly dance, check out my offering under (1) Muse Dance: Original Belly Dance Music; (2) Songs from Euterpe, which includes the Muse Dance songs; three romantic veil dance tunes: (3) Gemma, (4) Leah, and (5) Laleh; and a new lively beledi tune (6) Full Bloom Beledi.

She has arranged six volumes of Celtic traditional music for two instruments and has composed three volumes of original music. She studied and performed oriental dance for several decades, which inspired her to compose this original dance music. Interest by dancers and musicians in these compositions will encourage her to create more!
