    Default Who is your inspiration in belly dancing?

    Mine is Sadie! Whew! It will take me forever to learn those steps!

    YouTube - Sadie BellyDance

    Do you know what kind of belly dance her style is? Egyptian?

    I think it's American style, but not sure.

    That would be my guess as well if i had to hazard one.

    I'm all about Fifi - I named one of my puppies Fifi.

    Suheir Zaki!! She is my favourite dancer ever, from the first time I watched a clip of her dancing on youtube I was swept away by her elegance, grace and her sweetness. The music just flows perfectly through her body as she dances.

    However it was Natacha Atlas's music that actually inspired me to start belly dancing; I so loved her music and all the middle eastern music I heard that I wanted to learn how to dance and relate to the music. Then what started as a burning desire became an obsession

    I will have to check online about those other belly dancer inspirations you have as I'm so curious! Thank you.

    Moon and Mya, thanks for the input about Sadie's style of dancing. Some of her moves are being taught in my school but her choreography (?) is too fast for me. I think she executes it quite marvelously! I wish she had more emotion though or I don't know. There's just a teeny something about her I can't actually pinpoint.

    Perhaps you find her more of a technician than an artist?

    Yes, Shanazel, something like that... Her movements are just impeccable but I was probably looking for depth of personality or her connection to the audience. I am not really an expert in belly dancing so I cannot tell what the ideal performance is.
