Thai Dance at the Tulips Festival

After the Egypt performance was finished, I was about to exit Major’s Hill Park when I noticed a strange procession making its way to the stage. Hidden behind bright red sunshades, Asian-looking girls and women were shyly posing for photographers. From the pattern of their clothes, I gathered it was time for a Thai dance, and once again, I hide besides the stage to watch the performance.

The best thing about Thai dance is that the slow and graceful movements are quite easy to capture on camera. The focus was clearly on mysterious hand movements and the women barely moved their feet. Smiling all along the performance, they gently moved their inches-long fake fingernails and shoulders to the beat of the music.

I loved the younger dancers, as they looked both scared and proud of what they were doing. Their faces and expressions were just beautiful.
