    Hello!

    Gee you are very young! I am 34! I'm presently not learning belly dance. Stopped lessons about 2 months ago when we were moving (was skipping too many lessons) and though I planned to start again - or rather to continue - I haven't got down to doing so yet.

    Yes I'm living in Germany. My husband is German, he is from Essen. We've been married 5 years. Before that I lived and worked in Malta - but there were no belly dance lessons then, as far as I know. I feel many people in Malta are prejudiced against anything arabic/oriental and would be most likely to shun/to mock belly dance. This is only my opinion and I may be wrong.

    Whats you name, by the way? I've seen the nice pictures you posted; but there are 4 young girls - which one is you?

    Bye for now
    Daniela

    Default hello pearl :)

    Hey pearl!

    you live in Essen...hmm i don't know where that is... I just know that essen means to eat It's always good to know that word in many many languages!

    Well things have changed regarding people 's opinion on belly dance.I would be very angry if i hear anyone saying anything against it I AM A BELLY DANCER- pioneer in Malta! and a femminst so... i guess sometimes people say bad stuff about belly dancers just because they can't dance like that themselves. I am a student at univeristy , I am doing Arabic and ...you can imagine when there are teachers from school at my shows
    They are like "oh my god i never thought u could dance like that" ... there is a former teacher of mine that always wants to know when it's the next show! so... i guess that belly dance is quite respected!


    Well yeah i am quite young ( i guess)... I started taking dance lessons since the age of 3 with Ballet , and since then never stopped dancing .In the pictures I am the girl with the long curly blondish hair ...even in my avatar picture thats me. I am the petite one(short and thin) . My name is Corinne
    My parents took me for belly dance lessons in Tunisia when i was quite young, I used to do the belly roll before i had a real belly!

    By the way...I am going to Germany in a few weeks , is it colder than here? the last time i have been there....i was freezing (december) and here it was not cold at all!

    I encourage you to start classes there or maybe dance at home untill you find classes... I mean don't let your busy schedule as a wife run over ur fun time. There are many Turkish girls there maybe they give classes....Turkish belly dance is great aswell. I like DIDEM she is my fave turkish dancer
