1. Holiday Thoughts for Dancers
It is that time of the year for celebration, family, and fun. The weather calls for those warm blankets and hot chocolate. A fire to gather around, telling stories. A time to reflect on who we are and what wishes we have for next year. I would like to share a few thoughts.
2. Understanding Scheherazade
It has been awhile since I last spoke of the Arabian Nights. There is a reason for it. I've read so much into the story, that I don't want to finish. Scheherazade and her stories amaze me. As dancers, we should at least try to know her, this fascinating woman who inspires the music and our dance.
3. The Arabian Nights Parts I and II
Now it is time for storytelling at its finest. In this discussion, I will refer to the storyteller Shahrzad, in the Persian tranlisteration. The first parts are "The Merchant and the Genie" and "The History of the Fisherman".
4. Creativity - Right Side Brain
We are always interested in learning new dance skills. Understanding our right side of the brain and doing certain exercises, strengthens that area.
5. Images on Bellydancer.co
The images on this Facebook page are beautiful and I look forward to seeing the images daily.
6. Dancing for Mental Health Awareness
Dancers have different answers as to why they dance. Some do it for fun, to entertain, and others to express the pain of ourselves or others.
7. A Glimpse of the Belly Dancer, Mata Hari
Mata Hari was known as the exotic dancer, who was later executed for being a spy, but little is known of her contribution to dance.
8. Turkish Sensation Tarkan
This sexy, Turkish singer can make you dance! The media called him the "Prince of Pop", and may I say, rightfully so.
9. Drum Solo Routines on Youtube
There are so many videos available on Youtube that you can see just about any dance routine known to man. On the topic of drum solos, I have selected several wonderful routines for your view.
10. Trinkets and Things for the Costume
Last minute decisions, not finding the right costume, and not having the right size, are all part of every woman's costume panic. Every woman wants to look great and sexy. At times, when a woman feels hopeless, there are always items around the house to consider.
