Well, bless your little belly dancing heart for going to the trouble to answer all posts! Glad I could say something that helps. Looking forward to reading about the Sadie class.
thank you for the compliments I felt so self concious at the time, but that went away when I noticed it wasn't much an issue with dancing (I got hired anyway) dancing is really great that way, it changes one's self perception. And with costuming there is so much you can do.
Amulya - Hi AmulyaI see in the picture that indeed you were very thin, pretty much like I am now, and you looked very beautiful(also in your other pictures you look amazing and your costumes are lovely!). With me it happened way too often :/ Some family members would say something about it everytime I'd see them, which made me very self concious, but now it happens much less thankfullyAhh Im glad none of it got in the way for you to do gigs, and you are right, it is very sad that society is like that, it shouldnt be right to be nasty to anyone just because of their physical appearance.
Ohhhh Rachel Brice!!!! that woman is amazing! But I dont know how she looks in person but in videos she doesnt look thin or overweight, and also she looks solid (her body looks strong ina good way) I need some work XD Ahhhh yes, the big movements, Im trying to improve on that. Yesterday I went to class and we are working on a choreography for december (it will be my first time performing since I started taking classes aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh) and I already know that I never do the choreography "clean" in the first tries, but I try xD there were some moves that are difficult for me, in this case hip circles small and big, and actually yesterday I was trying not to make them too big because the first time I tried the small ones I remember having pain in my lower back for a while. My teacher told me that I was missing the posture once I started doing the circles, so I tried doing them smaller, and actually they look BETTER xD so I have to keep practicing. Ohh I love the big skirts, and the ones that have multiple layers so beautiful
:lol: Flat-chested, MizzNaaa, flat-CHESTED. But boobied works too, I supposeWell I'm just gonna put it out there, as an Egyptian we are judgmental (f-word here). At some point you're going to be either too fat or too thin, too tall, too short, to flat boobied (is boobied even a word?...I'm making it one!)
