    "Classic" belly dance songs

    Hello from Portugal!

    I've been fascinated by belly dancing since I was a teen, but only had the courage to take my first class at 29, and in the middle of a pandemic!:D I am a baby belly dancer only on my second month of practice and lessons but I'm excited to be here and learn from you. See you soon, Lissa
