    call and response

    I love pieces of music that contain segments of call and response (question and answer/musical conversation) but find I tend to be a little repetitive in my interpretation unless I'm really concentrating on what I'm doing. I was wondering if anyone knew of any good youtube clips or...

    Beladi Comment/Compliment Question

    I wasn't sure where to post this question, but since it is in relation to a performance I thought this forum might be the place to put it. Anyways, last night I performed at a 50th birthday party and afterwards I got a few comments and compliments which is always nice, but there was one that...

    I think I finally get it (performance wise)

    I had one of those "AHA!" moments where suddenly a few things come together and things just click into place during a performance on the weekend. Normally when I perform, I look at the audience without really seeing them and I simply scan a sea of faces without actually focusing on them. This...

    A Wiggle When You Walk

    This may sound a little strange, but I seem to have developed bigger hip movements when I walk. I've always had a fair bit of movement but lately I've been noticing the movement myself. I'm assuming its a combination of increased mobility due to drills/isolations/dancing and being able to...

    Mens head wear - urgent help needed

    My son has his first student performance on Sunday and would like me to wear something along the lines of the white or black head dress in the following link, but I have absolutely no idea how to go about it. I've found heaps and heaps of links and how to's for making tribal-style womens...

    Strike A Pose

    At the end of a group piece I am currently learning, we are supposed to strike a dramatic pose (each girl different from any other) to finish. I tend to keep falling back on the old 'one arm up, the other hand at the hip' pose but I'd rather end with something a bit different. I was hoping you...

    java java where for art thou java!

    I'm having an issue with the java aspect of the forum. Smilies, adding quotes/links/etc to my posts using the java buttons and I was wondering if anyone else is having a problem, or if its just the resident gremlins in my computer? Cheers! Lisa

    other peoples perceptions

    I had my Mother and step-father come over tonight and as always my Mother asked how my dancing was going. I'm not really sure why she asks because she has made it quite clear many times before that if its not ballet then its not a valid dance form. Anyway, as I answered my step-father said...

    Lotus Hands

    I saw a snippet of a DVD a few weeks ago (Keti Sharif's Astrobelly) and in one part she does lotus hands. It was really quick and over in a flash, but I was wondering how it was done as I thought it looked fantastic. I've done a bit of reading on the net and found a few "how to's" but I seem to...

    El Zai - 1001 Nights Society

    I know this is mainly an instrumental piece, but right in the middle there is some lyrics and I often wonder what is being sung. Does anyone know?

    Tahtib Sticks

    Does anyone have any idea where I could buy the tahtib sticks used by the male tahtib dancers? My son is requesting them and I have absolutely no idea where to get them from :confused:

    404 errors

    Hiya :) Just wanting to let you guys know that I've been getting 404's for most of the day when trying to access the site. All the other sites I've been to today have been fine, so I think your server might have the hiccups ;) Cheers Lisa

    Your first solo

    I was wondering if anyone would care to share their experiences of their very first solo performance? I'm asking because I did mine last night and the experience was just slightly this side of terrifying. It was only in front of a fairly small very encouraging group, but I was still very...
