    I'm going to be learning candles very soon - a lot sooner than I actually thought possible! - to be performed in November. The combination of me and fire should have a lot of people very worried... if there's a headline stating "Bellydancers killed in blaze", don't look at me. *shifty*

    My best props are cane and single veil (a distant second but improving). For some reason I found cane easiest to learn of the two, I had a teacher who taught cane every so often in class and for some reason I really connected with it.

    My first teacher is a master at double veil and zills so I sould be good at these (thoughn it has been years sincee I studied with her). But at that time I was focussed on learning and practicing the movement techniques and learning the music and was not as interested in using props (I know zills/sagat are an instrument not a prop--but I find them intimidating lol!). When I decided I was ready to dance with a veil, I found I remembered a lot of what she taught as I obsessively practiced, it started coming back. That and Aziza's veil dvd helped.

    I am interested in double veil, zills, shamadan or tray, sword and melaya. The teacher who taught cane also taught Melaya Leff ocasionally. I think I am going to focus on overcoming my zill/sagat intimidation issues first since I suspect that will help my dancing the most. Though I don't think I will perform with zills anytime soon.

    I love it when I see people dancing well with a prop--I mean dancing not doing a bunch of parlor tricks (though that can also be fun to watch). I'm curious, How did you all decide which props you want to dance with?

    I'm a sword/cane girl! I love balancing things on my noggin. For some reason, even though I'm the clumsiest girl on the planet, I can balance things. Weird.
    I like veil, but it's not my forte. I always feel like I'm whipping it around.
    I'm working on my zills more. And we will be balncing open-flame fire trays in coming weeks. It's gonna be real hard for me to lay off the hairspray.
    FIRE!!!

    I love dancing with a sabre. But I also like dancing with veils and I even learned to dance with large fans - it looks so great when you are dancing with them!

    Inspired by my troupemates, I just bought a sword, and am eyeing off a set of isis wings. (any good DVDs out there for either?) I'm also waiting for my veil to arrive so I can practice with it... and maybe being silk it will miraculously stop getting tangled in my ponytail (which my teacher's veils do!!)!

    I haven't touched my zils in ages, but I do find myself air-zilling to groovy rhythms.
