    Default No BIG names, but great teachers/dancers

    Hi all !!
    We complain all the time about teachers/dancers, that they dont know what they are doing, not even their style. That start to teach very early (5 weeks wonders lol). That dont have professional behavior etc etc.

    Lets think positive !!
    I trully believe that we are at a time, that all over the world are spread fantastic people, from personality, and dance/teach abilities, that give so much in their local bellydance community, work serious, and trully love oriental dancer !!

    I just want to share with all of you videos from dancers/teachers that I know personaly many of them, and some havent yet the luck to meet them, but we never know.
    They are not BIG names (yet), but what they do for Oriental dance and community is BIG !!

    (keep in mind that maybe i'm picking the egyptian style more, as this is my style also, but there are also other styles of Oriental dance)
    Also mentioning mostly people that teach alot, even local and have an impact in new students.

    Mercedes Nieto - Hungary

    That video of Al Kenz Oriental Studio is great! They start out all serene and adult, then turn into a bunch of little girls dancing and playing. Looooove the costumes too!
