    Default Hello, I'm Arabella

    Hello there, Ladies!

    My name is Arabella, I'm from Ontario, Canada! It's good to be here in your forum, I have been looking over the messageboards and see a lot of interesting topics! I came across this place by accident. So in I came and looked around. I'm looking forward to participating and meeting some new friends, hopefully. I've been bellydancing for just under 5 years and love it! My background is in soft-style martial arts though. I've been performing a bit, have done maybe 35 performances in the last year with more to go. I think dancing is the panacea for all ills. Dancing makes your spirit soar!

    Good on you! I am also doing my first solo performance soon (end of June). I am excited but also have a bit of a tummy ache thinking about it. I am doing my choreographies every evening for 1 or 2 hours now in order to be TOP perfect amazing when I am performing... well at least I hope I won't forget any moves...

    We gonna give it our best! Have a great weekend

    Oh and again: WELCOME!!!!!

    Curl,

    The tummyache you feel thinking about your performance in June are bellydancing butterflies. I've done a few performances and still get them, believe it or not. I'm doing my first solo soon, next week, and I get them just thinking about it too. I also practice 1-1 1/2 hours a day my choreographed routines, if I let a few days go by, I have a tendency to forget some steps. In that practice I do lessons from a layering moves drill video I bought on the net, which is excellent. It's a tough workout but worth it.

    It's called Drills! Drills! Drills! Belly Dance With Michelle (Joyce) produced by Cheeky Girls Production. It's great instructional for layering and also for playing zills while layering.

    There's a sample video you can watch at the selling site...

    Belly Dance DVD - Drills! Drills! Drills! - Michelle Joyce

    they got the DVD at amazon:
