    Default In it for the sparkles!

    Hi everyone. I'm Josie. I have lurked on this board for awhile just reading and not talking, but I want to work up the nerve to say hi and how inspiring so many of you ladies have been to me.

    I am very new. My title is because I originally was intrigued by it as a way to have fun while working out, and look good doing it. To me, belly dance stuff is just so much more fun to rationalize spending money on than running shoes and spandex!

    I like all kinds of belly dance and haven't the education to narrow down to a style yet really.

    My first book on belly dance was by Dolphina (...please don't hurt me, it was on sale for four dollars at Barnes and Noble, amongst the diet and exercise books...) and I have to say I don't think I'll be sticking with whatever style that is, though.

    to the forum, Ohhh sparklies we love sparklies

    Give yourself time, it can take a while to work out what style appeals, some people like several styles. Just concentrate on the basics before worrying too much about an actual style. Just enjoy the learning process and the fun addiction

    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)

    I actually think the book by Dolphina is not bad. The index is particularly helpful. Welcome to the forum!

    Thank you so much for the warm welcome, everyone. At the moment I am still roaming the board collecting awesome ideas for outfits (not like rip-offs but just wow this looks SO good on someone who looks KIND of like me only graceful...) and trying to narrow down what to get first as far as books and DVDs.

    So much wisdom on these boards.
