Draconis looks like a good dancer - I'd put him in the American/Turkish camp. To see some Egyptian style check out Lucy, Fifi, Dina etc.
Okay - if this is your preferred style - then Egyptian is NOT what you are after. The physicality overrides the music to my eye - and it is way too much. In Egyptian it is about the music - and you don't spoonfeed your audience - they have to watch you. You have control but it isn't to gross out your audience - it is so you have a wider palette to choose from to express the music.
Okay. So it is looking like Turkish or Am Cabaret is what I am looking for. Is it important to right away find a Turkish instructor or would just starting off at the place I am currently at now be okay for just the raw basics, like how to stay in proper posture when executing a move or how to hip circle?
I don't want to be doomed to looking like something i don't want to look like, but at the same time the beginning belly dance course looks really good for beginners. Plus it is twice a week!
I cant seem to even FIND a turkish/am. cabaret bellydance instructor down here in South Florida.
