Adiemus-- glad you find that useful about the voiceover sections; i think you can turn off the voiceover too, right? (if you get tired of it or want to try without it)... i forget whether we set that on the dvd.
The pants outfit was custom made for me by Eman Zaki of Cairo--it's a variation on the "Saidi pants" outfit that she has made for Randa Kamel. :-D At some point i may sell that outfit, so let me know if you want to be alerted if it goes on the auction block!
I'm working on a bra that has removable drapes. Using the clasps from old necklaces and stringing these faux (sounds more elegant than 'fake') pearl beads and tiny coins... Can't wait to finish it, but have to finish the skirts for the paying customers first!
Yes, I made it, based on a very basic straight sheath dress, extended the sleeves a bit, and remade the neckline, then loads of embroidery and beading (well, not too much actually, 'cos I had the fabric with the applique that I just cut out), but I did bead/sequin around the sleeves and neckline - never again!!!
Thanks very much Bronnie! :-) I appreciate the feedback.
If you'd like to be on my email list for my dvds, send me email to email@example.com (or just go to http://ranya.net and fill out the Mailing List form. :-)
No I don't teach, I'm just a newbie, been learning for about 2 1/2 years only! I learn with Kashmir who is on here. She teaches a lot of folkloric and beledi, beledi I think is my favourite.
I'm really happy to meet other dancers though, especially if they're visiting Christchurch!
Hi there Bron! How are you doing? How's work, family and belly dance? Never had the chance to meet you in Chch but hopefully soon before I head back home. Things didn't go well as planned here. Graham's been to Dr. Ingles and was told that spinal fusion was out of the question. Oh how could he stop that back and leg pain? I think it's sciatica. Anyway, I'd like to ask if you know someone selling a 3-tiered black tribal skirt for a cheap price or I could rent it for 2days and I'll wash it after. I'll only use it once for a hafla, if ever I will manage to learn tribal in a short time (I wish!). Catch up soon! Cheers
