    Posting Videos of Children - WARNING.

    So, I was randomly looking at youtube vids of belly dancers and some child dancers came up. Occaisonally I look at these and think they are cute. I do have in the back of my mind that it may not be the best idea for people to post these vids because of the perverts out there, but I thought...

    Street performing

    I came across some belly dancers that were performing on the street. I like the idea of it, but I wonder what it's really like. I know it's not very common to see street performers in smaller towns, but they are very common in big cities around the U.S. I very much enjoy them around my city...

    What is Arabic?

    Every once in a while I hear the word "Arabic" mentioned in a belly dance reference. Sometimes it's meant as a general term, sometimes someone will say it's not a proper term... I'm confused. I don't know much about ME culture and I'm not sure what is considered Arabic. Is it just a language...

    Where do you practice?

    Ok, so I don't have much space at all to practice (or privacy) and I was wondering, where can I find a large space to practice with mirrors? The dance school is closed when classes are not in session, so that is out. I was thinking of getting a 24hr gym membership and practicing in the...

    Spanish Infusion

    Well, after spending 6 months studying bd and being overwhelmed by the different styles and sub styles, I've honed in on what I would like to study and eventually perform. Cabaret (I can't say specific regions 'cause I'm not quite there yet and I will most likely mix in several) and Spanish...

    Flipping hair while performing

    I have a question for you hair flippers! When I see this done during BD, it's usually a drastic swirling of the neck & head. Is this specifically the way it's supposed to be done and/or is it specific to a certain style of BD? Sometimes hair flipping techniques take time to learn and I tend...

    Wrong costume?

    Would this be an example of someone wearing the wrong costume for the style of dance? Her dance seems fusion tribal, but her outfit looks Turkish... it was confusing to watch! YouTube - Christa Belly Dance
