    Default I Feel Out of Place.

    Honestly, I feel so lost here. I learned from youtube videos, and a TV series called "Shimmy." I don't know anything about the different styles, or good BD music. I just belly dance in private for fun, and exercise. All I know is the posture, and the moves that I've been taught online, and on TV. Please don't flame me for not being professional, or not having an actual teacher. I'm here to learn some new things, and discuss the art of belly dance with everyone here. I hope that I'll be accepted on some level by everyone here, despite being an amateur. We'll see what happens I guess.

    Welcome. I guess if you're genuinely here to learn, you will.

    Hi Luna, welcome to the forum. Everyone starts off as an amateur and quite a few start off using DVDs, youtube etc. Later if they can find a class many will join a class.

    No one will flame you, this is not what this forum is about.

    You can ask questions, post in threads and be quite welcome.
    Also search the forum for answers to any questions as well. If you are interested in knowing what DVDs or CDs are great for beginners you will find answers in those previous threads.
    Hope you enjoy being part of the forum.

    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)

    Hi Luna, and welcome!
    I am sure there'll be room enough for us BDF n00bs too, even if we're not pros...there's obviously a lot of knowledge and thought provoking stuff to pick up in this forum - and we're all welcome to it, no matter our level, I am sure.

    Happy dancing+posting!

    Welcome Luna!

    I'm an amateur too, and have learned loads here. I think that realising how much you don't know is a really good place to start.

    Happy posting

    Everyone starts out knowing nothing. Just read, look, watch, practice.....and you'll learn tons very quickly. It's all about how much you put into it.
