    Bodies

    My favorite saying about belly dance (and I use to encourage others who are thinking about it) is that not only can everybody dance but every 'body' can dance!  There are lovely looking motions in belly dance for every body type....it's wonderful and very empowering!

    Going Tribal

    I have been taking classes on and off for about 20 years. I started with the very traditional Egyptian style, which I think is great to learn to acquire discipline in the dance. But since I'm an innately rebellious sort, I am totally attracted to the Tribal fusion movement, which...

    Shimmy She Wobble

    We've all witnessed it.Some have had the opportunity to learned the moves, and other have only seen it from the other side of a screen.Regardless though, the flowing hands, the fluid and sharp hip sways, and the serpentine waist movements all keep onlookers drawn to this dance...

    Pure Joy

    I started Middle Eastern dance in January of 2005, after seeing some women in my community performing.  I was totally mesmerized, and said to myself, "I am going to learn how to do that."  A couple months later, I was in my first class, learning to shimmy...

    Started Tribal And I Love It

    I really dig the American Tribal Movement. I have been looking for a good instructor for this form for years. I finally found an instructor that is quite a perfectionist. I am grateful for that. I want to learn this form correctly so the fact that she insists on proper posture...

    I Love This Style of Dance...

    It makes me feel so much better about myself...even though i'm not the best at it, I love to just put on a song and let the music flow around me and suddenly i'm in a different place. I can express myself and how i'm feeling just by letting my body do the moves it naturally does...

    To manipulate your movements.

    .. so that only one portion of your body moves at a time... circles, figure 8s, lifts, dips, pivots, undulations... anything and everything! It's so fun. The feeling of fluidity makes so very enjoyable :) Not to mention... it makes me feel sexy... just a little, haha.

    I'm in a troupe, and belly dancing has done wonders for my self-esteem. At first I thought there was no way I would like belly dancing because I can't dance period. But, once I started, I instantly fell in love. Everyone around me, big or small, looked absolutely beautiful! Even...

    I love to feel the music course through my body. To sway in time with it. Close my eyes and float away on the notes. I may not dance well, but I love to live in the moment.
