Dancer Turns Katy Perry's Roar Into Body Image Anthem

November 19, 2013 2 min read

It's amazing the level of self confidence that this dancer has, as well as the pulse that she has on our society as well.  I love that so much can be communicated in dance and that simply watching and listening can connect people in ways they have never imagined.  Positive body image, that's what its all about.  And getting to that point and proving that you don't have to look a certain way to communicate and connect with people. Katy Perry's hit hasn't been super overwhelming to most of the world until now. Burlesque dancer Amanda Trusty turned "Roar" into a tap-dancing, body-celebrating, lady-power anthem. Her performance begins conservatively: Her body is covered up, her hair tied up in a tight top knot and her dance moves are ballet-like. The real magic occurs when Trusty shakes out her wavy hair, takes off her tutu and sweatshirt, removes the words "cellulite," "fat" and the phrase "suck it in" off her body and begins to dance with abandon. The video is mesmerizing (and only slightly NSFW). Trusty wrote about the experience of performing her "Roar" routine on her blog: "While I literally peeled the words “cellulite” and “suck it in” off my body, as a part of the piece I created in order to share my journey, I thought to myself, “This is Broadway to me.”  I think this video speaks a million words for my journey, and no more explanation is needed, other than explaining that burlesque is an art form where clothing is removed. So you will see skin. You will see all of my passion. And you will hear screams from over 200 people who have shared part of my journey with me, and have probably been on some version of it themselves."   (Huffington Post)
