Repetitive Movement in Belly Dance Choreography
A belly dance performance should have a variety of movements, engaging the audience and leaving them with a lasting impression. However, many dancers allow for repetition in their dance. There are several ways this can be done.
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.

Having the Right Fit and Look
The belly dance bra is probably the most eye catching piece of the belly dance costume. It is important to have the right look and fit, so that the performance is a success. First impressions are everything!
Description of Middle East Instruments
Before there was electrical music, there were simple instruments that created such beautiful sounds. Many of the known instruments today come from the Middle East.
The Great Debate
The question, "where did belly dance come from?", is much like asking "what came first, the chicken or the egg?". So many theories, so many answers, but nothing is concrete. Nevertheless, the question alone creates such an exciting debate.
The Sensual Belly Dancer
The art of belly dance is sensual. Some may confuse belly dance as being sexual, but it is not. There is a difference. Belly dancers have the right to express the feminine spirit through dance.
The Right Attitude in Class
Just like any dance class, there is a certain attitude one should have while in class. Stay focused, learn, and ask questions. Remember to respect the instructor and others who are in class.
Choosing a Belly Dance Class
The first question when choosing a belly dance class starts with you. Ask yourself why you have decided to take a class. Class fees, size, and distance are important factors when considering what class to take. Instructors should stress technique and provide feedback.
