    Smile Hi! New to the forums!

    Hello, everybody! My name is Amanda, and I'm new to this site.

    Well, Belly Dance is THE ONE TRUE LOVE of my life! I've been dancing since I was 14, 14-1/2, and I am turning 18 this year. It makes me feel happy, alive, and beautiful!

    I am trained mostly in Egyptian style, (Sharqi mostly, though I am learning an teensy bit of beladi), but I have also dabbled in Tribal (I love the music, the costumes, and a small troupe setting), and I love it.

    I am a plus size belly dancer (though I prefer luscious ), and always plan to be squishy and jiggly, but I'm working off the unhealthy pounds very well with diet and exercise.

    I've preformed (unprofessionally, of course) about 7 times in front of large crowds, and a couple more times in front of smaller ones. Three of the large performances were with other people.

    I'm super happy to have found this place! I hope I learn loads! Thanks!

    Welcome Amanda!

    I'm another Amanda

    Please contribute to the "why do people obsess on bellydance thread" if you wouldn't mind. I always like to see what drives others who have the same crazy obsession as me

    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)

    Thanks everybody! I love these forums already! I'm lurking on so many threads. And, Yes, I am SO lucky I found Belly Dance when I did, I wish I had found it sooner, though. But who doesn't? Haha!
