    Well...that was an odd take on things. She's never been my cup of tea.

    Pretty much my feelings on the matter too, without wishing to be impolite.

    She used a whole lot of words to say nothing.

    So because an area has more than one dance tradition it is okay to mix them together because they came from the same place. Like Highland dancing and Morris dancing - both found in the UK. Or csadas and Irish dancing - both found in Europe.

    Basically self serving drivel.

    Maybe I am misunderstanding, but is one of the thrusts of this that belly dance, that you can tell is bellydance because it has "movements easily recognizable as bellydance", has been evolving for centuries in Asia and the ME (Egypt????) by fusion, so modern day fusion is pretty much right there in the tradition of belly dance?

    Yeahhhh... It all went wrong for me at "movements easily recognizable as bellydance". Who gets to do that recognising?

    I couldn't even finish the article. Why doesn't she call it fusion what she does, keep it separate.

    Maybe she thought better of it. The article was gone when I looked.
