I Am a Bellydancer

For people who enjoy bellydancing. 96 People

    I was young in a dance class

    where I learn salsa, waltz and ... Belly dancing. I was mesmerized and since that day on. I studied it and performed it the best to my abilities. For I wanted to dance so freely and loss myself on the dance floor.

    But I love belly dancing.  My wife was taking lessons years ago before she got pregnant and I'm trying to get her back into it.  I own several cd's for the music and several 'bollywood' dvd music videos that feature some great dancing (Dixit, Rae, etc.....)  My 3...

    Love It

    I have been belly dancing for 6 years now.  I go clubbing a lot to escape stress. Dancing has a mind soothing quality that is unequaled for me.  A friend of mine suggested I take a belly dance class with her and I have been hooked since.  It is very erotic and...

    Hip Snap

    I think every woman in the world from the time she first saw Shakira do those hip snaps in "Whenever, Whereever" had a secret desire to become a belly dancer.  I too can be counted in the crowd.  It was many years however, before I would make it a reality...

    One of my friends said "you move like an elastic band". It bought a smile to my face :) -- mission accomplished, as I had spent years perfecting my movements in front of the mirror. Even though the movements look very fluid to the undiscerning eye, I assure you that you...

    Due to my culture, bellydance is very popular.

    I learned how to dance from a very early age but I never dance in public. Only among family and close friends. Anyways, bellydance is a great form of exercise. It forms all the right curves in right places ;) Try it. It's a great stress relief !!

    I've been belly dancing

    for close to 7 years now. I love how feminine I feel. It's so empowering. Dancing with a group of fellow belly dancers is such a tribal experience. It's so powerful. I've take belly dance workshops from Zoe Jakes and Rachel Brice. Really dig tribal fusion.
