    Thought Provoking Belly Dance Costumes: the good, the bad and the hideous

    Argh! Why did I have to see the eyes and the moustache/beard on the bra, when the rest of the costume was so nice?

    No classes in town for the first time since 2000.

    Might not be more complicated than that, but still a bummer.

    Thought Provoking Belly Dance Costumes: the good, the bad and the hideous

    If it had a more correct name, such as "fantasy costume" I wouldn't bother. Could have worn something similar for a LARP costume 20 years ago, but not for dance. The only thing I liked about it was the colors.

    Thought Provoking Belly Dance Costumes: the good, the bad and the hideous

    Beginner choreography

    For Egyptian style, I really love Ranya Renees DVDs in general. I'm not sure if they are what you are looking for at this stage in your dance journey, but I could recommend them any day. They are so full of information I could watch them over and over again. The DVDs from Outi of Cairo might...

    Egyptian shimmy CANNOT frustrated :(

    And if you sit too deep while trying to shimmy (i.e. knees are too much bent), you may also put unnecessary strain on them so they will hurt. So when you practice the Egyptian shimmy, stand in a neutral position with knees only slightly bent. The tip of practicing this type of shimmy sitting...

    Are there a lot of spruces at Granby Lake? ;) App. 25C and cloudy. A bit hot to do field work to my taste, but I'm not complaining. Been out walking all day having fun with colleagues.

    Getting real

    Whenever I've attended workshops and events out of town, I've played "spot the dancer" on my way to the event. I usually spot the right persons, even if I haven't seen them before.

    I've been out doing field work this week. A bit of rain, but mostly sunny or cloudy. Temperatures between 8-15 C and pretty nice if it wasn't for the pollinating trees. Had to get my short sleeved (woollen) tees out when working in the sun.

    Finding a Teacher

    ATS, FatChanceBellyDance or FCBD are registered trademarks and have their own certification system, if I am correct. I don't think ITS are a registered trademark.

    Costume restoration

    I have repainted some plastic beads on a costume once, but it wasn't many beads. Worked well for me, though.
