    Pandemic Joint Pain

    Well here's something interesting. I was dancing and practicing much less since the 2020 shutdown which, during that time, I started feeling a lot more joint and muscle pain. I thought I was just "getting older" until the last few months, when I started getting more gigs and performing online, I...

    Old School Versus New School

    I've been watching quite a few shows online due to the pandemic, and I get opportunities to see a lot of dancers I never saw before from all over the world, which is a wonderful opportunity. I've seen all styles, both vintage and modern, and I've noticed that on the more vintage, old school...

    Dancing on Doumbeks

    I love to watch dancers dance on doumbeks. I was also planning on performing dancing on one when I was told that dancing on drums is disrespectful to drummers. Has anyone else heard this?

    Does anyone know how I can download Hipalicious on iTunes? The name is not coming up and I was wondering if it's listed under a different name. I need it for an upcoming private party. Thanks.

    Sibling Rivalry: Bellydance and Burlesque

    Here we go again. Personally, I would like to ask this dancer what in the world is she thinking and please stop putting these two topics in the same category.

    Self-Adhesive False Eyelashes

    I'm going to finally give in and try wearing false eyelashes. I bought a pair that is self-adhesive. Has anyone else had success with them? Do they stick really well? Up to this point I've been wearing maybe 3-4 layers of mascara but even with that, false eyelashes are so beautiful and LONG...

    Business Etiquette in Hiring a Photographer

    I hope I'm posting in the right topic. About a month ago I talked to a local photographer about doing a photoshoot via e-mail on Facebook. She responded a little later on telling me her prices, asking about my availability, etc. I told her that I am not available on weekends as I have heavy...

    Stage Name Mystique

    Stage names: many of us have them. Most dancers take on Arabic names while others take on Gypsy, Turkish, Greek, Hungarian, etc. What do you say to people when they ask you if you really are that nationality? You want to keep the mystique without downright lying, so how do you answer?

    Halloween Themes for Parties

    I know a lot of dancers will wear their bellydance costumes to Halloween parties and appear as "bellydancers." I don't because I am a bellydancer, and I always thought the idea was to go as something that you are not. What do you think of this?

    Nour and Barrel Turns

    This is about barrel turns and the arms that go with it. In this clip, Nour, who is an awesome dancer, does barrel turns around 3:55. She uses arms that are bent, not straight out, which I was taught to do. In fact, in many of her moves, her arms are closer to her body than what I normally...

    Cleaning Coin Bedlah

    I took out my coin bra and noticed that it could use some polishing. Does anybody know what I should use for this? I thought maybe that old remedy toothpaste would work, but I am hoping for a better solution. Thanks.
