    And now on to some YouTube suggestions. You might want to check out the clips recommended here at Orientaldancer.net and at Bhuz.com. Sometimes people will post links for something on YouTube that is really outrageously awful, but usually the links here are for wonderful performances by excellent dancers.

    This will give you a chance to see many excellent performances in a variety of styles. And will help you hone your eye and ear.

    Good luck with your pursuits. You are on the right track.

    Lizajuk -- thanks! I've been biting my tongue, or my typing fingers as it were.

    Honey -- you came on asking for information because you want to become a professional middle eastern dancer. Professional belly dancers are businesswomen. And I know you've heard this before, first impressions are everything.

    There are many lovely and experienced professional and hobbyist dancers on this forum from whom you can learn much. The amount of effort that each of them, however, puts into responding to your questions may be appropriate the level of seriousness and professionalism you show in your posts.

    Of course, you are free to text away and I will probably get slapped by a moderator for appearing to chide you. But I just wanted to let you know that I am saying this not as criticism but as some friendly advice. Take it or leave it and so will I.

    how long have u been belly dancing?
    Hmmmm I've been dancing almost 7.5 years so far and love it

    I am not dancing professionally because I live out in the boondocks of Alaska and there is no where to dance.

    how many lessons did u take a week?
    I use DVD's because the closest teachers are about 3 hours by air away

    how often did u practice at home?
    I practice usually 1 hour a day, 5 days a week on average.

    how old were u wen u 1st started taking lessons?
    I was about 44 when I first started.

    i am not a professional and im not a businesswoman, if the day came that i would be then i would be professional bout the way i write.. and believe me i have, but i am in a forum, im not at work now so i will choose how i will write. 1st impressions r everything but i am not here looking for a business deal im just askin a few simple questions. i will not come 2 a forum and be told how i should write wen i have seen other members in here write words such as wanna etc..
    if u dont want 2 answer me then dont i have had quite a few replies with no one complaining u dont have 2 reply 2 me souzan, and neither does anyone who does not understand my "text writing".
    and as for ur friendly advice.. well i am leaving it!

    Honey, I think it's ok, people can just ask if they don't understand you.
    I've seen other members write much "worse" than this and no-one was mentioning that!
