True- lots of times I've longed to stay home from class, usually because the roads were so bad or I was so tired (and whiney).
True or false: you broke a heel on your shoe while you were performing
The wig was convincing because I have black eyebrows and eyelashes, but it made me look older because the color was so harsh against my skin. I really hated wearing it. It was hot and I was always afraid it would slip.
True. I began growing my hair out as a point of difference (marketing term) for my bellydance business. I have been dying to get it cut quite a bit shorter but have been told in no uncertain terms that as 'the bellydancer with the long hair' I am expected to keep on growing it! (it's halfway down my butt now!)
sorry about that - for some reason the lastest posts didn't show up for me, so to answer Shan's question: False, but the elastic straps suddenly lost tension & the show went on anyway.
Tricky one, that. What's professional? A well respected totally professional bellydancer once told me that if you are asked to dance for money then you're a professional. I've danced for money on numerous occasions, so the answer is False. However bellydance is not my life nor my income, I often dance for friends or charity, and I wouldn't class myself as professional, so the answer is True.
True or False; you have more belly-dance costumes than pairs of shoes.
False: I had some of those students myself Shame they didn't persue a carreer in belly dance. Well, one did, but she gave up because she thinks she's too old for performing I gave her a big lecture about that: that she better gets on her feet and start dancing again! Sent her a whole list of workshops in her country. Hope it works...
T/F: you have a bedlah permanently in the car, just in case.
True. Actually I was in a florists & asked if I could give them some cards to display for brides-to-be, etc, and the hubby started clapping out a baladi beat & insisted I give a demonstration right there in the shop!
True or false: when the tv is turned off, you dance to your reflection on the screen.
