Hi from swedish Gisela!
Hi everybody! Been reading stuff in here for a while before i registered. This is great. I didn't expect to be able to learn more about dance from the internet, but now i think it's brilliant.
I'm 26, from sweden but living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
I've danced oriental dance for three years and now I really want to improve a lot, so I signed up for four(!) classes a week. Is that crazy? I'm a bit worried that i will be confused, but I want to try at least. I came back to town late in summer and all the classes were almost full. I was on different waiting lists and it didn't look as though i would be able to dance at all! Horrible thought! Suddenly there was room for me everywhere. Haha, we'll see if my schoolwork will be suffering.
Looking forward to learning a lot from all of you.
See u in the forum.
Hi Gisela, very much a newby myself, finding my way around...have fun.

Welcome Gisela! 4 classes a week is absolutely normal, I wish I had the mere opportunity to attend 4 classes a week! Enjoy the forum!
Hey Gisela, welcome to the forum!
I'm Norwegian but living in Stockholm. Do the Danes understand you when you speak Swedish? It's funny, I thought most Swedes would understand my Norwegian just fine but I've had quite a few hilarious moments as well as many empty stares.
Did you know that there is a really great BD community in Stockholm? I was so happy when I discovered my school "Egyptisk Kulturcentrum" (The Egyptian Culture Center) this January. It was the answer to all my BD prayers! There is just such a great atmosphere there and wonderful teachers, and their shop "Kairo Bazar" is brimming with high quality costumes, tons of CD's and DVD's. They also organize the Stockholm Bellydance Festival every spring/early summer with master teachers from Egypt. (I'm working on a long overdue report from that event at the moment that I'll post in the forum.) There is also a big event with master teachers coming up in November. Perhaps you should consider a short trip home since you are so close?!
(Maariku: You are really close too! I can almost see the boat to Estonia from my window here in Stockholm)
Four classes a week makes perfect sense to me, I'm doing three but wanted to do four!
