    Hi fellow dancers!

    From baby belly to beginner...next stop...possiablY joining a troupe. We'll see! LOL!

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the kind words. <BG> It went well on Saturday, though I must say I really blew one number when I was out front, but thankfully I had 5 others that I performed in that I only had a few bobbles in that probably only myself and my fellow dancers would catch. Thank goodness for the "beginner" title. <BG>
    The lights were so dang bright that I felt like I was going to be lifted off into a space ship or something at anytime and between that and the nerves it was a little scary. At least I didn't fall off the stage...I know it could always be worse. Anyway, I did it and got through it and I did have fun.
    I did surprise myself on how quickly I was able to change costumes. The only thing I had trouble with was switching out the jelewry, but at least I figured out to put the costumes and hip scarfs on first and worry about the rest "if" you have time. I pretty much never did between the hair and lipstick touch ups though. Oh well, I think it went pretty well for my first time on stage though and I am really glad it's over with. Their should be alot less stress now in class....no more gotta get it right for Gala! LOL!

    'We came to Belly Dance" and belly dance we did. LOL!

    Thanks! I think our style is American Bellydance. Which I think means we don't actually have a set style. LOL!

    PS
    I'll have to look into the Oriental, I don't think I heard of that style of BD.
