Here are the top ten articles for the Bellydancing Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. In Celebration of LGBT Month
This month our country celebrates our amazing LGBT community. Slowly but surely, this great country is more accepting of men and women whose sexual identity or preference is non traditional. The belly dance world embraces such a diverse group of dancers, including LGBT individuals.
2. 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.
3. Belly Dance Theme Party
Autumn is the time to relax and to be around good company. Having a belly dance theme party will be a memorable occasion for you and your friends.
4. Yoga Meets Dance Training
Yoga Meets Dance is an excellent method of combining dance with yoga. Individuals are always looking for fresher methods of movement and healing for the body. This method is the answer for a balanced mind and body workout.
5. 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 transliteration. The first parts are "The Merchant and the Genie" and "The History of the Fisherman".
6. 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.
7. Elvis Presley's
In Elvis Presley´s movie Roustabout, Elvis sings about Little Egypt. "Wearing a ruby on her tummy and a diamond as big as Texas on her toe", Little Egypt dances with other dancers while Elvis sings. You can watch the videos on Youtube.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. Alay'nya's Unveiling: The Inner Journey
This is a must read for all women. Most of what is written, relates to oriental dance and the lives of dancers, instructors, and those who dream of becoming a dancer. A woman's journey is of importance and Unveiling: The Inner Journey is a terrific guide.
