    Marhaba shebab..

    (greetings young ones) How are you all doing? It`s been ages but I managed to get myself away from underneath that depressing rock I`ve been living under and I am back to haunt you;) For my injury, still not the old one, but well on my way. My bd activities now are concentrated around...

    Interpretation issue

    This has nothing to do with bd but it got me totally pissed off and in a big discussion with my brother in law. Now I do know I am a bit over sensitive on this subject, so I was wondering how you interpret this? For me, the bit about self defence is ok, the rest puts responsibility on women...

    When you realize how much dance means...

    First, hello everyone, long time no see! I hope you are all ok! For me, not so much. I`ve had an accident at work 4 months ago in which I injured my right hip and since then I haven`t been able to do much. I am able to walk, but with great pain and short distances. I am not able to work or even...

    Israel & Palestine

    So, finally I`m gonna pop the question...I`m curious, what do you know about it, where did you get your info, do you have an opinion about it and what opinion does the gp in your country seem to have ?

    Never had so much fun!

    during a performance! My very first solo-fly(aka, it had nothing to do with my class) and workshop bellydancing with the greatest audience/participants ever! It was in a combined home for people with mental handicaps and old folks from the former colonies. The old folks found it fun but the...

    Feeling like a b*tsj...

    *warning: possible whining/ranting ahead* Two former bd class mates contacted a couple of our troupe for a performance. A couple of us went to check out what it was. Ok, it was obvious it was more of a play, the 'teacher'was not a bellydancer and half of all the girls participating never did...

    Student annoyances

    A little sister of the instructor annoyances tread. Could be towards other students or towards teachers. - I` ll repeat the student who makes appointments to practice but doesn`t show up. - have a class that starts at time X but consequently starts about 20 minutes later. - I`ve never came...

    partners and bellydance

    Just wondering which experiences you have with partners and their response to you dancing. Also, has their attitude towards the dance changed over the years? And then, how do you respond to their response? My boyfriend sees how much joy it brings me, so he is actually sometimes the one to...

    A basic bellydance wardrobe exists of...

    So, at one point in your bd carriere you look at your wardrobe and come to the conclusion that x-part of it consist of bd- clothing or is at least convertable to the cause. But what are the items any serious bellydancer should have or at least desires? My thoughts so far: - a two piece/ bedleh...

    Politics and dance.

    How many times have you come across such a situation, where politics seem to interfer with the dance or the dancers? Either in your personal life or in general. Or is the main experience dance overcomes those differences in politics? A good friend of mine once got rejected on a event for her...

    A wiehoe moment!

    I consider myself at most as a dedicated student. I love this dance, I have a great time and I want as much info as possible. But I still don`t get the new moves right away(I have to practice them at home or my body refuses), I am no good at sharp moves and most importantly, I just don`t...

    Any of you have any advice? I have little to none experience in programming so putting it together myself will not be an option. I saw some online programms where you could use their space and make your shop with that, with the basic options for free. Any of you have any experience with those...
