    Default GO TURKISH!! Hi from Istanbul...

    I am a Japanese expat living in Istanbul.
    I've been dancing Turkish oriental for 1.5 years ... and my teacher is LEGEND Nesrin Topkapi!!! She is a great dance ( well, I don't need to mention that, right? ) but also a great TEACHER!!! I know I am veeeery lucky that I started my bellydancing with her
    I also dance Roma style but not as much as Oriental...

    Looks like we don't have many Turkish Oriental dancers here, but I would like to make friends with you and talk about our dynamic and beautiful style!!

    Lucky you having such a great teacher and such ready access to beautiful costumes. How long have you been living in Turkey? Do you intend to stay for a longtime?

    We are a diverse bunch of people here, and love to hear about everyone's experiences so jump in when you are ready.

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    Default Thank you Mosaic

    Thank you for your comment, Mosaic.

    I've been here about 2.5 years for my hubby's job assignment so not sure how many more years to go ... I started dancing as "just a hobby", but now it is MY LIFE as others here!

    As it is not too easy to get belydance related information in Istanbul, I hope I can contribute to the forum

    Also thank you for noticing my first costume ( yes, custom made! )

    I'm recently returned from a holiday in Istanbul, it was so lovely We stayed in Sultanamhet. Too bad we weren't e-friends when I made my trip, we could have taken a class or two together while I was in town!
