    Default Too tiny???

    Hello everyone,

    I ve decided to post a question so i can have your opinion about this: do you think that tiny girlz can bellydance as the tall ones?
    I ask myself this coz i have to admit I'm a tiny one(around 5'2" ), and this is a real debate in my head...What are your opinions about that?

    Thx bellydancers for all around the world on this forum, have a wonderful day!

    Of course!

    I've had two long term teachers who were about your size. Excellent dancers both.

    Yes a tiny dancer can belly dance as well as someone tall. I'm 5'3, particularly focus on stage presence to appear larger than 5'3. But that comes with time and practice like everything else.

    To contrast~ a tall dancer in a troupe, moving in time with the music, may be required to shorten stride to be on count. A smaller person may be required to lengthen stride to cover similar distance.

    It all works out.

    Two words:
    Oreet Schwartz

    seriously, google her. She's phenomenal and she's way less than 5' tall.

    Just to let you know since you're new here, this section of the forum is actually for threads started in other sections that end up in a meltdown; it's not really for starting new threads.

    But to keep on topic, I'm four feet nine, so yes, tiny people can bellydance.

    Now that this thread is where it will be read by more interested parties...

    I'm only tiny too, and I tower over the shortest dancer I know, who towers over the shortest Australian dancer I know of (who also happens to be one of the biggest names in Australian bellydance). So no, size does NOT matter with bellydance. Dancing does.

    Good gracious, at 5'7" I'm beginning to wonder if I am too tall to dance.
