The Art of Creating a Gorean Slave Dance
My name is mari RA, and I am owned in real life and online by Master Ra
Al. I started to learn how to dance soon after I came to know and love Gor back
in 1998. Since then, I have written and performed many dances and won many
competitions. I have taught many girls the art of dance and seen them grow and
flourish into beautiful, dancing beasts.
I want to share the simple knowledge of the basic steps in writing and
performing your own dance. If you learn and follow these steps, you too will be
able to write and perform a beautiful dance that will knock the socks off your
owner or any free person. Whether you want to learn to dance for personal
reasons, or perhaps one day compete, it's a great art and one that I find so
Through a dance you can let out all emotions, even ones you have a hard time
expressing in plain words. Some girls are naturally shy in nature, but teach
them to dance and to express, look out, they are the hottest in all of Gor.
The reason that I find the dances so important is rather simple. We, as
slaves, have very limited means of expressing our needs and desires to the free.
We are often not given the luxury of simple conversation. Therefore, in order to
express ourselves, in order for each of us to stand apart as something unique,
we must develop our own skills, tell our own stories, and do so in an
entertaining, pleasing way.
If you are restricted you may need to get permission from your owner to
perform more sexual dances.
Take note of other slave dances by all means, learn the process from others,
but, BE ORIGINAL. Do not copy another’s dance, even if you found it on a website
and nobody would know who that person is.
To plagiarize the work of others takes the fun out of writing dances, and
destroys the whole reason for the dance, your inner personal expressions. The
whole purpose of a dance is to express your inner desires, and to please those
who watch you, and only by expressing your submission, desires and emotions can
this happen on a personal level.
Use your feminine sexuality in the dance, ranging from subtle movements and
descriptions, revealing only hints, as in a veil dance, to downright provocative
in a submission dance.
Always get your sisters and possibly a Master/Mistress to check your work,
correct all spelling, and be realistic in your movements! In competition, you
will be marked down on grammar and spelling.
Always use full, correct sentences. Points will be deducted in competition if
you use dashes or dots where they are not suppose to be in proper grammar.
Please, just learn not to use those dashes or dots in the first place, and you
won't have to worry about it. I can not express enough how much proper grammar,
spelling and such is so important when competing. We are not uneducated, lazy
slaves. We want to show off our stuff the right way.
Keep in mind there IS a general structure to dancing for effectiveness, but
this varies slightly from dance to dance.
These are the four main areas to a dance.
INTRODUCTION - The first part of a dance where the slave sets
the scene, provides an environment and backdrop, and sets the type of dance to
be performed. This is the beginning. A clear sign that the dance has begun,
setting the stage. Describe the dancing area, your outfit, your approach. Start
simple. Begin to fill in the descriptions of the dance, adding in color and
spark, bringing the dance to life and setting the mood of the dance.
CRESCENDO - The second stage where the events of the dance are
outlined. Such as in a capture dance, where the slave describes her anger at
being pursued by the dark stranger, which later leads to her emotions of being
captured. This stage is also known as the build up portion of your dance. Don't
forget that your dance is a story, there needs to be a definite progression of
events. Fill in the description with appropriate adjectives, polish the
PINNACLE - The third stage where the dance peaks. This is where
the goal of the dance is reached, for example; the slave is captured, collared,
forgiven. This stage is also knows as the climax of your dance. Where the story
of the dance is realized.
FINISH - Where the dance is closed, completed. This is where
the music stops, the slave expresses her effort and perhaps performs a closing
position for the audience.
To write the dance where does one start? First thing to do is brainstorm.
Write down all your expressions of emotion, movement, and words you my find
appealing for your dance.
When brainstorming you should consider including: lighting of the room; the
effects of the hearth or thalarion lamps; description of music, emotions, scents
and aromas, sexual movements. The more realistic and true to the heart
descriptions, the better.
Next thing to do is to design the basic structure or make out a rough draft.
Keep in mind the type of dance you are trying to conceive and the four main
areas of many dances, this will help you structure the dance itself.
You can try generating one point per paragraph, what that paragraph is trying
to achieve. Add your attributes to your structure and begin to construct each
paragraph with description. Give your dance body, a dimension that is the dance
itself in raw form, much editing is still to come.
Polish the text, make it elegant, flowing, beautiful, free and easy to read.
Capture the Masters, Mistress and slaves in the audience with your beauty and
Remember you can always break down your paragraphs if they become too long.
You don’t want to let them go over the buffer size, so they are "chopped off"
when you paste to channel. Again, if you are going to compete, this will be a
major deduction for you.
Now you have your dance constructed (after a bit of hard but rewarding work),
you can have your sisters read it, this point is very important as we are not
very critical of our own writing (or perhaps-too critical).
Once you are happy with the format and feel it is ready you may perform it
over and over, the dance is yours, aimed to please the Free People and bring a
broad smile to your owner.
Time your postings well, just in case there are interruptions in the channel
you may have to pause or whatever.
Don't let the dance fly through too fast, as this is annoying to the readers,
and shows an unrealistic time frame, and once again, no spelling errors!
Use your dictionary or any other method available to you to help you in this
area. DESCRIBE your emotions, your actions, use those fabulous adjectives that
Webster gives us. Use descriptive phrases, example: eyes green as the Thassa
Watch the pronouns. Don't use her or she too much. I try not to use the same
one in the same phrase more than once. As well as any word, like whip, find
another name for it, like tendrils, don’t use more than one descriptive word per
phrase. Don’t be afraid to capitalize your name if you use it to begin a
sentence, or to capitalize a pronoun referring to yourself or another slave,
just because that is the way we talk every day online as a slave. Always, always
use proper grammar. *Do you think mari is trying to tell you something here?*
Don’t expect miracles on your first dance, although it is not as hard as it
sounds, Ar was not built in a day. It takes much experience and the writing of
several dances before a red silk kajira becomes well skilled in the art of
So do not despair, do not fret, as it will fall into place for you as time
goes on and experience falls your way. With time it becomes easier and extremely
pleasurable for you to be able to perform such beauty and to be pleasing for who
you dance for as well as yourself. There is no crime in that.
Finally, do your research, watch your sisters carefully if you are new to
dancing and learn well from them. They are a great source of your learning. Most
of all, enjoy being pleasing!
There is nothing coy or teasing about a Gorean dancer if the dance is of the
"The girl wishes to be taken, wishes to please, she wishes to excite them,
and twist them with torments of desire, and make them gasp and scream with
pleasure!" Dancer of Gor , page 192
Think of what you want to express to your Master or Mistress. Always dance
from the heart, think about what you are feeling and describe it. This is your
chance to share your passions, your joy, your pain and sorrow.
Think of the dance as a story. You are trying to express yourself. Tell your
story for all who watch to see, feel and understand.
One thing you may want to incorporate into your dancing is a slave pole. It
constituting a hypothetical center of gravity, she moves, undulating, swaying,
sometimes yielding to it in ecstasy, sometimes fighting it, it always holding
her in perfect place, its captive.
The control achieved by the use of the slave pole is remarkable. An
incredible, voluptuous tension is almost immediately generated, visible in the
dancer's body, and kinetically felt by those who watch.
Picture the dance in your mind. Close your eyes. Think of the emotions you
are wanting to convey. Put on some music you like and think it through
carefully. Feel the music, let it slide through you, let it take you, let it be
you. Now move with the music of what you feel, what you want to convey to
others. Make sure it's actually physically possible.
Try to keep your dances not more than 15 minutes. You don't want to bore a
free person by dancing too long and you don't want it to appear that it's over
before it seemed to start.
Too short of a dance may appear that little thought was put into it. Always
remember to make it flow.
Think about what you've seen your sisters do, or have read in other dances
you have seen on the web or in the scrolls, but be original. this is YOUR chance
It doesn't matter if you're performing a veil dance that has been performed a
thousand times before, no one has ever performed YOUR veil dance. Claim it as
This is obvious, but be sexy. At no time is a slave to be more seductive or
enticing than when dancing before a Master. Yes, we are sluts, but, lets be the
most elegant and graceful sluts of all of Gor.
When you refer to your heat, watch your words. Watch your wording when
referring to your sex, but definitely use it and be so sensuous, so sensual, so
graceful and elegant, ALWAYS, but very, very, very sexy as well.
Tailor your dances to suit your owner. You know what he or she likes, modify
the poses to suit the one or ones you dance for.
A thought on scripted dances. this is a good idea, and a bad idea. It's a
good idea, because sometimes dances are long and detailed and you don't want
typos distracting the Master. It's a bad idea, however, because it doesn't allow
you to change things as the whim hits you and it makes the dance a bit automatic
and sterile. As you become more experienced you may want to try to do a "off the
cuff" dance or "impromptu" dance. They can be so much fun!! Sometimes you are
given a prop or two, if not, then bring one in on your own. Let your imagination
run away, you will surprise yourself and all of those watching.
I have several dances that I keep in text files. I will generally cut and
paste if I know I am going to be dancing or when competing, unless it‘s a
impromptu dance style. This way, I can read each pose through before I paste it,
and can make changes as necessary without having to type the whole thing
Also, you can adapt the dance to fit the situation (the Master may decide
halfway through to forget about the rest of the dance and grab the girl - or may
disappear to the attacks of the lag sleen). Reread through the pose first, make
any changes, paste it, then re-read it before going to the next pose, making
changes and pasting it. It also allows you to keep track of where you are.
Read your dance out loud to yourself. Make sure it flows smoothly and makes
sense. Don't be afraid to go back add things or subtract them. A dances is a
living thing, forever being modified. Show your friends and get their opinion if
you think you need help. But be warned, if you ask for an opinion, you just may
Remember, this is YOUR dance, so do it the way you want to. If you don’t like
a suggested change in your dance, then don’t use it. Again, you will be
surprised what you can learn, though, from asking and watching others.
Now you have the basic steps. It may sound like a lot, but it really isn’t.
Everyone can dance! It just takes some longer than others, but there is no harm
or fault in that. If you really want to dance, only YOU can make that
