    The two most important belly dance moves

    This is a "just for fun" thread. There is no right or wrong answer. Which belly dance moves do you consider the most important? Or, phrased differently, if somehow your body was forced to "forget" every belly dance move but you could choose two that your body could retain, which ones would it...

    My first competition!

    So all these years dancing and I'd still never participated in a competition, mostly because so far there have been none (that I know of) closer than 4 hours away from me and I don't get a lot of vacation days at work. I was heading off to Cairo last week, to take workshops from Randa Kamel and...

    Egyptian Style DRILLS DVDs?

    Have any of you heard of such a thing, or something close? I have tons of DVDs... many of them with very, very good material. Yet, I find myself uninspired to work with them because the way the material is presented is not ideal for my personal learning style. I prefer to learn a few things...

    Spam flood

    I've noticed that lately, this forum has been getting spammed very often. I get email notifications when someone responds to a thread I posted in, and some nights my email gets spammed with responses from here, nearly all of them being trolls/ads. I know I can change the email settings if it...

    Nour of Russia/Cairo

    I've always liked this dancer, but more and more she is becoming one of my favorites. She is Russian but lived in Cairo for a while, I think in the 90's and early 2000's. I think she is great technique-wise but also captures the feeling of Egyptian dance. One thing I really like about her is...

    Irina Akulenko on Howcast

    Usually these websites/youtube channels feature very bad so-called professionals, awful explanations and even wrong technique, so I was pleasantly surprised to find Irina Akulenko here. She's a wonderful dancer and has great technique. This could be useful to our baby beginner members who like...

    One week ago I started having this awkward, sharp pain that would happen near my left shoulder blade whenever I turned or tilted my head to the left. I chalked it up to having slept wrong, since it started on Sunday morning. Since the pain wasn't there all the time and wasn't that bad, I...

    I'm not a huge Meleya Leff fan, but Soraia Zaied always kicks ass. I thoroughly enjoyed this video. In fact, I can't stop watching it! (This is an old clip, from 2002 Ahlan Wa Sahlan) FLFcHwmT0zA&feature=recentu
