Sounds like you have the perfect body for foofy skirts. Am I ever envious!
Find balance first, then elegance. I know it sounds odd (and I'll probably come under fire for saying it) but good balance is more important if you want to dance gracefully.

No fire from me. It's not easy being elegant when you are wobbling about or falling over.

Ah, gotcha. That's actually not so far part. I was thinking wide, like a foot and a half- Sumo wrestler style, y'know?
Shan, I think it's because of the way I'm built. My hips are SO wide, and if I'm not wearing really wide legged pants or a full skirt, keeping my feet close creates a very odd and unflattering line. I need to keep at least about 6" between them to get the graceful, well balanced look that most dancers have.
Ooooo. New fusion style: Sumo Belly Dance. Imagine the costuming.
