    Super Oriental

    I bought this DVD, it's Turkish dancers from maybe the late 80's - early 90's? WHAT is up with the costumes???? Or lack of them, I should say??? BTW, although my DVD is defective and they are kindly sending me a replacement one (it breaks up into those digital squares and freezes about...

    Tarik in California?

    On the forum previous to the loss of the topics, there was a brief discussion between Zorba and Tarik about the possibility of getting Mr. Sultan to CA for a workshop/symposium weekend. I would very much like to know if this is still a possibility, and if Mr. Zorba would be so kind as to let...

    Lengthening a dress?

    I bought a green stretch velvet dress at the thrift store some time ago with the idea of turning it into a costume. Problem is, when I bought it I didn't realize that the fact that it isn't ankle length might be a problem! So, two questions: -Do you think it will be OK that it ends about 3...

    Is this normal?

    I have been dancing at a ME restaurant about 80 miles from my house periodically for the last year and a half or so. The contract (verbal, not written), no matter who has been the agent booking the dancer, says that it is for 2 15 minute shows, pay is $50 for the night ($25 per set). It's not...

    Balegh Hamdi El Hob Koulou

    I'm looking for different versions of this song. Mr. Hamdi wrote this song for Oum Kalthoum in the late 60's/early 70's. For some reason this just must not be a popular song, because the only version of it I can find is on the CD Amany and the Badawist. Does anyone know where I can get a...

    Finally, a Britney Spears song I can listen to without tearing my hair!

    This is so wrong on so many levels that I think it actually makes it almost right! :clap: The guys dressed like the girls with the flame fingers are the best part. And I think it's the only version of this song I might actually want to listen to! :lol: Nd_gvR06j6s

    Learning Arabic

    OK, I know I am making this probably harder on myself than it needs to be...I am learning the Egyptian dialect of Arabic, because I have read in several places that when visiting Egypt it is easier to get around moneywise. So -- when I have questions I try to look it up on the internet. Bad...

    How long did it take for you nurses?

    Hi all. Well, I bit the bullet and applied at three different hospitals for jobs I am interested in doing -- ER at two facilities, and tele at another. Although I'm a new grad nurse, I'm a 12 year paramedic with critical care flight in my background and nurses I've spoken with, as well as...

    Happy Earth Day!

    Happy Earth Day!! When I was a little one, we planted a tree and cleaned up garbage as a school project on Earth day. Now, we try to make every day earth day, buying 'green' as much as possible. How have you all celebrated, if any way?

    Video/DVD recommendations

    I was wondering what your recommendations would be, if you had to make them, for videos that portray ME dancing that one would identify as "authentic". I recently did a private party, and although I made good money, I really felt like I did the dance a disservice due to my crappy performance...

    Tomorrow is my big day!

    Tomorrow I take the NCLEX test -- that's the national test that allows me to be licensed as a nurse (if I pass, that is :shok: ) Been studying like mad for the last month, been taking an online review course, been taking tests if I'm not ready now, I never will be! Good thoughts...

    Husband Swap...

    Hubby suggests a new reality show...swap a "bellydance husband" (i. e. those who support the habit completely including being a "bellydance tender' as he calls it-- carrying stuff etc) with a non-bellydance husband. Hmmm....sounds like it would definitely be good for a TV show -- it could come...

    Haidia's Ultimate dvd set?

    Hadia's Ultimate dvd set? Any reviews on this? I read the hype on the website (sorry if I offend by saying that, I don't mean to disparage) but I hesitate to spend that kind of money if it's not worth the price...please feel free to PM me if you don't want to post publicly. Thanks!

    A site for those who want to play the music, too - Learn Middle Eastern Music It's a site where you can, for a small fee, download sheet music, get a rhythm cheat sheet, listen to songs in order to learn them, and get the lyrics (not translated tho). I can't wait to learn to play some of this stuff on my guitar, it's been sitting...

    OK, this has passed from a someday fantasy to reality....yikes!!!

    I made business cards (with LOTS of help from dear hubby) several months ago, put a few up in local businesses but not expecting to ever actually GET a call. I have just booked my first official gig, a surprise birthday bellygram for the visiting brother of one of our local hairdressers...

    Beautiful, Graceful, Powerful Arms?

    How does one develop them? It seems to be the one thing I really need to work on...I do drills, I concentrate on keeping lifted and graceful and as soon as my attention wavers there go the arms. I have been drilling with veil a lot lately since it seemed to help the Egyptian dancers; I got a...
