    Gee, I saw that and thought, "I'm been trying to figure that out all of my life!"

    Oh. Well, because my husband is a good man but bored by my belly dance talk. No one in our family belly dances. None of my friends outside of class belly dance.

    Thank heaven for this forum!

    Student amateur, 2-5 years (wow, has it really been that long?). No plans of ever going pro, either teaching or performing, although whenever the occassion comes up, I like to demonstrate basic moves to anyone who shows the slightest curiosity, hoping to convert them None of my pals outside class has any interest in bellydance either, and I refuse to bore them with my obsessions (although that never stopped anyone from boring me with theirs... heh).

    6 months to 2 years student

    I joined the forum because I was looking for bellydance-related stuff on the internet, then I found this website and browsed the forum for a few weeks and when I found out how many useful advice one could get here (and saw it was not a professionals-forum but there were also a lot of students here), I signed up.

    I voted for the 2-5 years experience. I do occasionally fill in for my teacher, assist in class, am part of a dance troupe and sometimes perform on a professional level, . I'm hoping to be as professional as I can possibly be at this stage. I hope to get much further in the future

    I also joined because, after lurking for a while, I found it so interesting I wanted to participate, you all are so much fun and it's great to learn from you Besides, it's an international place with so many different dancers, and such friendly and helpful atmosphere. It IS a great forum!

    Default Why are we here?

    Dear Group,
    I joined because a friend of mine told me about "a great new forum". She was correct!!
    On July 1st, 1974, I took my first belly dance lesson. It was the start of a love affair that has lasted 33 years so far... almost as long as my marraige!! ( I can really run with a theme!!)
    Regards,
    A'isha
