National Dance Week 2010
If you haven't heard by now, this week is National Dance Week. Dancers from all over the United States are taking part in this week long celebration. Through May 2, 2010, dancers are putting their best foot forward to show the public that dance is alive and well.
Negative Belly Dance Blog
There were several titles that I wanted to call my particular article. After several deletes, I'm satisfied with this title. You see, I try to be positive for the most part, but when I came across this blog, Ugly Costume Goddess, I had to write something about this, uh, negative page.
Not Looking Good in Costume
A couple of weeks ago, I saw a video of myself dancing at an event. The video was an eye opener to say the least.
Planning a Successful Show
A belly dance show and/or event takes proper planning, for in order to be successful, the planning can not be done over night. Whether there is one person or a group coordinating the show, several things need to be considered.
Planning a Successful Show II
The last article, I gave helpful suggestions on planning a successful show. Now, I want to focus on the dancers that will perform at your show and what must be done, so that dancers are willing to peform again and again at your special event.
Popular Songs Rompi Rompi and Mastika
After a review of Sarah Skinner's DVD, I decided to do a little research on the songs that were used in her DVD. Both are very popular, and to really find out the true meaning of Rompi Rompi and Mastika, well, everyone has their say.
Posture is key when it comes to performing. A bellydancer who stands tall and proud, reveals elegance. Not only is posture important for peformance reasons, but correct posture prevents injury.
Prepare before Taking Stage
Dancers probably wish they had a permanent place, so that they can have their essentials to get ready for the performance. Most of the time, dancers have to carry a bag, or two, or three. What to bring and what not, is always a dilemma.
Profanity and the Dancer
Recently, I saw a remark from a belly dancer about another belly dancer using profanity on Facebook. Although the remark was more of a suggestion, I really had to think long and hard about myself and my mouth. How does profanity reflect on a dancer?
In this day and age, really earning what is your worth is difficult. The general public has a misconception of what a true artist/belly dancer is worth. When it comes to fees and such, who is really paying and who is not?
