    Smile New on here and to Belly Dance

    I am a newbie to belly dancing...learning just the basics. I am very interested in learning about the basics and then advancing my own personal style from that. I love the fluidity and the sensuality...as well as the design and fashion of the dance.

    I have two kids who love music and dance as well, and are interested in learning the moves too. I can't wait to learn more about dancing as well as learning about who "I" am.

    Hello Marya, it is I, Lynn, from the workshop in The Dalles on Saturday! Artemisia is the name I picked as my "dance" name, and is a form of my favorite Goddess, Artemis. It is also part of the Latin name for sagebrush and wormwood, the former of which grows around our house profusely. Thank you for your warm welcome!

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    LOL, glad to see you here too. didn't know you were also interested in Botany, one of my other passions also. I don't have as much time to spend here on the forum as I would like. There is lots to do here.
