    Hi YC Magic Star,

    I don't know what EXOTICA means in Slovenian (I've been reading up on your language, it sounds interesting), but in English an "exotic dancer" means a "naked dancer", or stripper. This explains some of the negative feedback you've been getting.

    The submissive, cleavage-displaying photo of the dancer on your website doesn't help our impressions any. I personally appreciate her look, but it makes me wonder what sort of show she does.

    I wish you best of luck with your competition, but there have been many cases of dancers being lured into unsafe, exploitative situations with the promise of a job. Because the promoters are not well-known, caution is appropriate.

    As for promoting the EXOTICA brand, I would want to know what products are in the EXOTICA line before I signed on to promote it. Are we talking energy drinks, beer, clothing, condoms, suntan lotion? I once wound up performing for a "cause" I am vehemently against, because the director of our group didn't tell us the details. I found out when I was onstage, and I seriously considered walking off. Professionalism won out over ethics that time. Now I am professional enough to get the details of any gig I perform at.

    Yes....I think we need more information if you want belly dancers to compete.

    Tsk tsk Maria Aya, such cynicism, from one so young and naive!

    p.s. to da Sage: "Exotica" does sound like a brand of "marital aids" doesn't it?

    Grrrr....Why don't you and Leila be a bit more respectful and if you KNOW information about this competition, post it in a positive and informative manner, rather than put down someone else. EVERYONE else here is respectful of others opinions. That is called being educated.

    Dear KuteNurse,

    I read the posting that started this thread, that's enough. Excludes males, doesn't it? In fact, pretty clearly implies that belly dance is for women only.

    If I may interrupt this debate...
    All this fuss about this Exotica competition is really absurd!
    If you have read the whole invitation, with all the respect to the organisation team from Yacht Club Magic Star from Slovenia - this is 1st world championship in oriental dance, at least what they could do is to hire some professional reader to correct some mistakes written in their invitation.
    That means being educated.
    That was the first thing I noticed and didn't like (but that's only my opinion), and there are some more...

    I did not see anything referring to belly dancing is for men only and I am sorry if I missed that. As a matter of fact if you will do a search of my posts, I admire male BDer's. I openly told one that I admired his style and that he had a lot to teach others.

    What I was referring to was: making sure when you post, not to be negative toward others in this forum. I have NEVER seen Maria to be anything but kind to others here. I admire her for her gracious heart and kind spirit and she has taught me a many things since I have applied to this forum. I am certain if anything was said, it just came out the wrong way or you perceived it the wrong way. Just be careful what you say about others and how it comes out. If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. And...I am not referring to just you.

    I completely agree! But I do not agree with calling members of this forum vulgar names for no reason other than to be cruel. I am not referring to you ninocka. That person knows who they are and their post shows the proof. Like I said above, If you can't say something nice, don't say it at all.

    Having an international talent agency for about 10 years I saw too many situations when unexperienced performers got in a trap. And this "offer" smells like one of those situations.
