    Would anyone be interested... a series of product reviews for makeup for bellydance? I want to get back into participating in the forum more, and this is definitely one area I know quite a bit about.

    Unintentionally disrespectful? o.0

    I recently found a new Hakim song that I love ("Madad" from his album, "Leyla"), but right off the reel, I suspected that it was a religious song, since the word "Allah" is repeated frequently. I finally got around to doing a bit of research, and sure enough, I found a YouTube video with both...

    Help! How do I save my hip scarf? :'(

    Lately, I've been taking an inventory of my dance costumes and accessories, and have found forgotten treasures, including my favorite hip scarf that I haven't worn for years, because the beautiful beading started unraveling. :( I'd quickly put it in a ziplock bag so as to not lose any more...

    Why, Natacha, whyyyyyyy??? xP

    Arrrrgh! I ran into a song quite by accident, and ended up liking it, a LOT, so I've tried doing research on it. It's called, "Ali Mullah," by Natacha Atlas, featuring Transglobal Underground: I've tried looking up the lyrics, and when that didn't happen, I tried to...

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!! !!!!

    Helpful health tip: not only is adequate rest important as a dancer, it is also very important in order to properly help moderate a dance forum. Lack of sleep may cause a mod to get his/her wires crossed and read things that aren't there! :confused: :wall: :wall: :wall:

    For achilles007

    Hi, achilles007! I'm posting this in the Videos section, even though my topic is actually music related (I didn't want to bump out the poster who is asking MizzNaaa about a certain piece of music she's inquiring about). It was mentioned more than once that the music in bellydance is so important...

    I was reading a Wikipedia article on Hakim, and learned that he sings "mawwal" in some of his sha'abbi songs, and from what I gathered, the mawwal is a type of vocalization before a song actually starts (I might have gotten my info wrong, though). Not sure of how a mawwal sounds, I'm posting a...

    To-the-point question... I too old? :( I've been so excited ever since I made the commitment to follow the dream I had only previously toyed with to become a bellydance teacher, and thrilled that I've made some major breakthroughs in the past year, at the young age of 53. Yet lately, one iconic mentor in...

    What is REAL Pharonic dance?

    I was watching a cute routine on YouTube recently, done to Hakim and Cleopatra's "Walk Like An Egyptian." Someone commented that it wasn't "real" Pharonic dance, and invited the dancers to come and learn from them (the dancers in the video made no claim to doing Pharonic dancing). I didn't know...

    Doing a LOT of rethinking

    As most of you know, a year ago, I had to quit my regular dance class because of an unexpected schedule change when our troupe had to find another studio (and I lost my ride due to the change). My first teacher, the young girl who lives in the same town as I do, said that when her new baby got a...

    Cultural appropriation, or plain old racism???

    Most of you might have seen this article already on Facebook. I try to be careful to show respect to all cultures, especially the Arabic culture, since I am learning bellydance. However, this article seems very hateful and counter-racist. Although the author does make a few valid points, where...

    Hey, y'all! :D I've been scouring the internet for the English lyrics to Hakim's "Bashaka," but haven't had any luck. Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance. :D
