    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.

    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 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.

    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...

    I Plan To...

    Well to be honest, I'm technically not a "bellydancer" as in a highly skilled, studied, or paid...but I am a bellydancer in that I love to bellydance. I love to shimmy my hips across any floor to any beat. I love the mixture of drums and zills. Or the sound...

    Hip Snap

    It's been years since I danced professionally, Raqs Sharki. There's a nice little offer hanging in the air to belly dance again. That just rushed a wave of excitement over me. I have longed to dance again...to hear the swishing of the beads and thumping of the music. I loved the...
