    Acting as an agent for belly dancers- how much is a reasonable %?

    Hoping the accumulated eons of experience here (and that's just A'isha, har har!), can help me out. Lately I've started to collect some dancers with some actual significant experience in belly dancing, not just the schlock I teach them. Now that I have up and running...

    Never upstage Salome!

    Just an observation- I like the way these teacher/certification etc. ads float up the left side of the page, then disappear under the index, and never, ever obscure in any way the image of our adorable founder. Which is as it should be! p.s. this post is in no way a random suck up ploy for...

    Shopping in LA

    Just found Adam Basma's ME shop yesterday, on Pico at Crescent Hts. in west LA/Beverly Hills, thanks to a tip from the proprietor of a shop on Melrose.

    This falls under the category of "Dance....inspired by,the Near and Middle East." It's our new dance, called "Magdalen." I don't call it Belly Dance. It's fusion jazz dance. But there is a considerable amount of movement in it derived from my belly dance studies. These ladies, all advanced...

    Just because it's "choreographed" does that make it dance?

    It doesn't get any better than this...

    I posted this clip because I'm currently (belly!) dancing to this song, around LaLa Land, not to Liza's rendition but the original Broadway cast version, sung by the incomparable Jill Haworth- quite different but I think equal, to Liza..darker and more remote. The Haworth version can be heard at...

    Booya- I just booked The Music Man, for the Theater Guild in the Long Beach area. Three weeks in August, I'm the choreographer. A year of firsts- beauty pageant, music video, and now a musical. Unfortunately I'll have to pretty much keep the belly dance out of the choreography, seeing as how...
