    Default Love to everyone from Turkey

    I am learning belly dance since 3 weeks. But I was always interested about this dance. I can say that I am not the begining level altough I didnt take any lessons. Besides I have done latin dances before and a little bit flamenko (3 months). In our country belly dance is much popular in courses nowadays. İn the past it didnt have good reputation. Even now. When I say somebody I take orıental dance course, they suprıse and ask why I am taking. "Will u be a dansöz? " they ask. Like some kind of despise. Or they think it is an erotic dance not see the dance as an art maybe. I dont know. But I am sad about this. When I read the posts in this site, I am very glad I see people from Germany, Netherlands,Greece, Usa, Belgıum,..etc.
    By the way of course I can translate u the Turkish songs lyrics. See u by.

    Merhaba Maria Aya and Helen,
    How nice to see you write in Turkish.
    My teacher is Ayşegül Zengil. She is not a famous one like Nesrin Topkapı, Tanyeli or Asena. In fact they are not giving lessons at the moment. Orıental dance courses is not common here as we think that this country is the origin of this dances. Latin courses is everywhere but you can not find oriental.
    But groups like Anadolu Ateşi (Sultans Of the dance= Fire of Anatolia)
    uses oriental dance besides many other folklorik Turkish dances. So the aspect is changing I hope everyday.
    I am from İstanbul. Have u ever been here? Last weekend I went to Kapalıçarşı. (the Old Ottoman bazaar) Very nice costumes I have seen. But I bought one Shakira belt. You know with the coins on it.You tie it to the hip. İf you have never been here I advice u.
    As a Turkish girl, I think I have the advantage of being inclined to oriental dance. (Elastic movements of arms, hips, etc.)Because when ı was a little child I watched Nesrin Topkapı and I said I want to be a dansöz(oriental dancer) but in fact this is a bad thing for many of the families. Now I am 30 years old. and I want to perform this dance as an art besides the architecture.
