performances of traditional Berber dancing are a popular form of entertainement at tunisian resort hotels . these dances date back to pre-islamic times . they include the dramatic dance of the vases , performed by dancers with vases balanced on their heads . this is also a highlight of the festival of the Ksour which is held around Tatouine :);)
have u seen these traditional berber dancing ? ;)

Do you mean the animation teams attempts at Irish dancing?:D
I prefered the traditional dancing, it must be a popular tourist show round many of the hotels.

Yes, I have. The women wear scarves around their hips and the dancing is mostly done on their toes. The gentleman with the pots on his head was amazing - he also did something with a tray and lots of coke bottles.

I put a few photos up at the time on my scrapbook:

Nothing at all wrong with it, they were doing their jobs entertaining the guests. But "Riverdance" it was not... maybe you could put them right on a few moves if you get your job as animator.:)

Hi Truly, that will explain why at times they looked bored. My friend went back in the Autumn and stayed in the same hotel we stayed in the summer, she said the animation routine had'nt changed a jot, can't be easy for them repeating the same routine day in day out.

BTW she went back on her own to see a guy she met there, he turned out to be a complete twonk!!! thats being polite;)

Oh dear, a lot of them are twonks!!!! When you go to Tunisia, just for a holiday and not back to see someone, you tend to see these guys with different eyes, if you get my drift!!!
