    What points would you like to include in a belly dance bingo?

    Of course you can choose to have several themes or just one.

    Here are some costume related entries:
    • Turkish airport Special (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )
    • Costume malfunction; Subpoints for top/bra, skirt/trouser, belt, other (such as loosing extra hair, hair getting tangled in jewelry or costume parts etc)
    • Sparkle farts (for further explanation, see the entry in OD dictionary)
    • Belly dance burka (face veil)
    • See through costume
    • Modesty flower (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )
    • Franken costume (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )


    Technical aspects:
    • Music hiccups
    • Bad sound quality
    • A complete track doesn't work
    • Lights make a beige costume look completely nude


    Dancer related entries:
    • One-trick pony
    • 6 week wonders (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )
    • Porn Face and EOF (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )
    • Turkish drop

    • Prop-tastic (two or more type of props in one dance)
    • Tinkerzills (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )
    • Hit and twirl (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )
    • WTFusion or poorly done fusion/fantasy labeled as belly dance (for further explanation, see the entry in the OD dictionary )

    Oh dear. As soon as I thought of it I thought a) new thread? and b) the goblins are at work here...

    Name That Choreography, aka "I was at that workshop/ have that DVD too!" (no points if it's the original workshop teacher or her regular students, but triple points if someone ripped off a performance video).

    Gratuitous hair tossing. Extra points for predicting it early. Khaleegi doesn't count, nor does anything by Nawarra who makes a fabulous thing of it.

    The Now Trending award. For big shows only - the highly distinctive costume design feature seen twice in one show.

    Teacher dancing with the class to make herself look good (outdancing them and/or wearing a much better costume).

    Making the head/face wrap with your veil. Extra point for head slide, obviously.

    Gratuitous Bollywood (moves/costuming when the music doesn't suggest it).

    A variation on hit and twirl - the Crooked. Two dancers manage to hook each others canes. (Done it! )

    And Pirates. arrrrrrr...

    Hahaha! I was talking to a dance collegue about BD bingo this autumn. We saw a show were a dancer did 26(!) different hair moves in one 5 min performance. She was gorgeous and skilled but the hair took over everything. (Since we saw the performance twice we counted the secoond time). Then there were about 10 other dancers that all did the "bend down and roll shoulders while coming up" move.

    When I saw the title I thought of bingo in the style of 'child free bingo':

    So it would be all things that people would say to belly dancers, so you could cross it off the list if someone said that to you. Here are a few:

    -belly dance? I got the belly for that!
    -belly dance? Isn't that some sort of erotic dance?
    -do you strip?
    -you are a belly dancer? wink, nudge
    -belly dance, isn't that an ancient dance?

    I am a calm person. I do not freak out regularly nor do I experience frequent urges to separate faces from heads. However...

    recently the subject of my dance class came up in a group conversation and I explained that I teach belly dance. One dirt bag who considers himself quite a wit made some wisecrack about stripping and asked if I taught a certain move used in certain circles to collect tips. An acquaintance took one look at my face and said to the dirt bag, "Dude, I suggest you apologize while backing out of the room real slow."

    Jerk.

    Sorry. Off topic but this thread reminded me of the event.

    I propose that "dumbass comments about belly dance" bingo should also be a thing, with extra points if your friends/students are moved to suggest evasive action on the part of the perpetrator.

    My son told me that I look just like my dad when I get mad.

    I was so proud.
