    Default Greetings from the far north!

    I have now been lurking here for a little bit, and I feel I should introduce myself. My name's Elin, and I live in Hammerfest, Norway, a place who likes to call itself the northernmost city of the world.

    I have been bellydancing since January 2002, and love it. Living where I do, there are no classes for me to attend here, but I used to live in Oslo, the capital, where I attended various classes and workshops. I currently to teach a couple of friends to bellydance, and hope to be able to teach here eventually (when I feel ready), and get more people to bellydance. Time will show...

    So, hi.

    to the forum, glad you have de-lurked
    <brrrrrr> must be jolly cold where you live, I am such a baby when it comes to cold, just a squeak of cold and I whinge and moan LOL I certainly wouldn't cope with your fair lands temps.

    Good luck with your teaching aspirations, I am sure the day will come when you will be ready and the students will come.

    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)

    Not so cold, really. The city (or town actually, but don't say that out load here, hehe) is by the ocean, and with the golf stream, it normally has mild winters. I freeze less here than I did while living in Oslo, and Oslo - Hammerfest is about the same distance as Oslo - Rome!

    Thanks. If I still lived in Oslo I wouldn't even start thinking about it, there are tons of good teachers there. But here there are people who ask me if I teach bellydancing, as they'd like to try it! (They know that I dance...)
