wow,how it must be to live in Athens,I have visited greece lots as a child,my sister is cypriot,my dream is to live in greece,realy it is.

i wonder,does greek bellydance differ alott from other types of bellydance,i remember greek dancing..and guys with tables in their mouths spinning round,that always amazed me so much.

I asked my partner the other day,can we please go to greece,he said of course we can,when we have saved enough so we don't have to come back:)

I bet you are a beautiful dancer,from my heart I wish you the very best,I live along way from london,I am saddened I cannot be there,but I cannot wait to hear all about it :)

love in dance

greek bellydance

hey miss shimmy,
glad to see there someone who likes greece as much as u do ..:D
as far as "greek bellydance" is concerned .. theres no such thing .. if i had the space, the patience and the time i would go into it more but i really do think, and im preety sure about it actually, that "belly dance" is of one sort.. there is no such thing as "greek", "british", "american","french" bellydance ....
now if ur talking about the "tsifteteli" dance ... thats not greek either ... its turkish .... and it has taken its name from the synonymous musical rhythm;)
shame ur too far to come over at the darbuqa venue .. where abouts are you in the UK ? i was a student in swansea for 3 yrs ... OUCH!:think:

Dear Miss Shimmy.
If you are seriously interested in finding out about Greek belly dance (which is the Tsifteteli) and other Greek dances, just have a look also at this thread in the forum.
In case you have questions about the belly dance styles, it is better to post them in the sub forum "Dance styles". There you will find people who know a lot about the different belly dance styles (because THERE ARE many different styles, only in Greece this knowledge is still not spread enough)
