    I am going to get it in before he does ;

    Zorba, "The Veiled Male"

    Check out the '' Articles for Dancers'', there is much in there about males in BD classes and how to treat them, but as a student, I am sure you will agree, teach males just like you teach females, aside from physiology, there is no difference, we are all just people wishing to learn.

    Also check here;

    Male Dancers

    Wise words by all on the reality of the situation.

    Khanjar did indeed beat me to it - but yes, teach him just like any other student.

    And, after all the negative publicity the UK has had over the lack of willing Belly Dance teachers for males - THANK YOU for being willing to take him on!

    I've always been willing to allow males into the class but so far have only ever had a couple of enquiries. Fingers crossed this one turns out OK and he encourages others!
