    I considered myself "semi-pro" both as a performer when I was young and as a teacher now (translation: need other work to make ends meet). Gia is my hero here on OD- she is a complete and consummate pro who makes her entire living as a belly dancer.

    Are you thinking of teaching as well? Maybe your teacher needs a substitute teacher every now and then. That can be a good way to see if you like it and how it goes. For performing, I think all previously said is great advice.

    That's a good question. I would love to, but it probably isn't going to happen soon. The instructor I've been with the longest asks another classmate (the one who's been there a few years longer than I have) to sub for her the few times she misses. I would feel a bit presumptuous to offer/ask to sub, though there's no reason I couldn't.

    I just started another class w/a second teacher and am going through her beginner session since she's VERY technique oriented and since I'm new with her....

    Yes asking your teacher is scary, but why not give it a try? It's a good way to find out what level she thinks you are
