When I first began belly dance classes I
had SO many questions: I didn't know how to put combinations
together, or how to dance with the music, and how to polish my
performances. I found out so much by studying with my teacher,
watching other dancers, and spending lots of time dancing on
my own. I also performed in thousands of shows over the years
and learned what worked best for me in different situations,
from live bands to improvisation.
Now I'm happy to share what I've learned with you. These short articles are about different topics that often come up in belly dance class, or are in response to questions I've seen posted in online forums. Scroll down to see all the categories.
