    Default Old lurkers meet and greet

    Hello!
    I am Henna, an anonymous addict of this forum. I am 47 years old and have been lurking here ever since I started taking bellydance classes, which was about three years ago. I have preferred to remain silent, because I have never had anything to share that seemed important enough.

    However, something happened to me last week. I danced my first solo at the local hafla. A saidi with cane. It was not planned, but just happened somehow. But it gave me a big boost of confidence and reduced my need to be invisible, so here I am. After all, an invisible dancer is a contradiction of terms.

    So I thought I should step out of of the shadows and thank all the regular posters for the education I have picked up here over the years. Thank you for being there and sharing your amazing knowledge and wisdom and humour.

    And I also thought that maybe this thread could be something more than my personal greeting. It could be the place for other long-time lurkers to stick their noses out of the closet. Maybe. Or maybe not, because I know how shy lurkers are. Anyway... dare you!

    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)

    Default Oh, i am a constant lurker myself!

    you may see this from the low number of posts i have in this forum, although i am a regular reader!!!

    welcome and weldone for introducing yourself! I agree with you that this forum is a great educational tool (and a real group support mechanism, thank you once more my friends!) and i hope that you will now write more often and tell your stories about bellydance!
    By the occasion, if you are in doubt whether what you have to say is important enough or not, just say it! as you may see, sometimes a little comment that the poster might not even imagine as important, might reveal a new, unexplored topic for discussion!
