This little flip book incorporates both of the Jelly Belly dancers into one story. They shimmy and shake, crossing paths as they move back and forth across the stage. When they are lined up one behind the other at center stage, they take turns being in the foreground..
Using a vintage black & white image of a belly dancer, I digitally separated the body from the costume parts, altered the background, and added color to the various elements. By distorting the image through Adobe PhotoShop filters, I added movement so that the dancers' costume drapery moves with the graceful swaying of their hips.
