    I always find the emoticons on OD a bit limited. Is it me or do more people find this one looking a bit awkward?

    Over here we call them "Hilal-ers" and we joke that their prayer book is Wendy's "Serpent of the Nile." But you're right -- I don't think she had much impact on dance in the US.

    This guy is something I use when I don't want a strong emoticon.

    I like the one giving group hugs too. But there are some here that Bhuz doesn't have that I like a lot too, mostly the dancing banana!

    6-week wonders - The expression "6-week wonder" (6ww) is generally applied to unstudied/unskilled dancers who are promoting themselves professionally as teachers and/or performers. Literally it refers to beginners that have taken classes for 6 weeks and then start teaching and performing professionally (often undercutting prices making it harder for real professionals to get good gigs). The 6ww doesn't recognize that her/his training is just the tip of the iceberg and doesn't know, or often doesn't care, that there is an entire MOUNTAIN of work to do just under the water. 6wws will never accept that their students have outgrew them and they keep information about other teachers in their area and about workshops secret, to hide their own incompetence. For more information about 6ww, read this thread: http://www.bellydanceforums.net/inst...k-wonders.html.

    mast ur bat * ry performing - A subversion of diva behaviour when the dancer just sits on her/his own thumb and spins aimlessly around her/his own ego. The performance is all about that dancer, her/his ego or whatever and there is an underwhelming level of respect for the dance, the culture, the process, the audience etc. (Taken from this thread: http://www.bellydanceforums.net/othe...dont-like.html)

    We have to add: this one was coined by Salome, these things tend to get forgotten in the future. We have to think about copy rights

    Dripples - tiny and droopy nassles looking like drippy nipples (source, example). See nassles.

    Cupcake factory explosion costume - This is what you get when the costume appears as a cross between a belly dance costume and an explosion at a designer cupcake factory, but is not related to the muffin top phenomena. (source)
