    Roll  Eyes Common Abbreviations

    For the sake of newbies and thick people, is it possible to have a list of common abbreviations? I get wicked confused with some of the abbreviations that get thrown about in here...

    What abbreviations are you confused about? Can you list them then we can tell you what they

    For instance you may have seen in recent posts FCBD that is the Abbreviation for Fat Chance Belly Dance a well known ATS = American Tribal Style school/company/troupe
    UBDC = Ugly Belly Dance Costumes

    Don't worry there are still abbreviations around I still am unsure of.

    Actually, that helps just there as well; ATS was one of the ones that I couldn't figure out at all, and it was driving me nuts!

    Let's see... you might see on the boards; MED = Middle Eastern Dance. AmCab = American cabaret aka cabaret belly dance aka American Oriental.

    BDSS = bellydance superstars (referring to that American group, not to very good dancers from the Middle East)

    In this context, "BD" does NOT refer to "Bondage & Discipline", but rather "Belly Dance"!

    I'm quite glad that you pointed that out Zorba! It would have never occurred to me to distinguish them - only because i don't think about bondage commonly of course.
