This Week's Featured Bellydance Story

Why I Love Bellydance
By Yeril Barlup

Dance has always been my creative outlet. Born in Latin America I was exposed at an early age to the colorful rhythms of Salsa and Merengue. It was until the age of twelve, in my many visits to the United States, that I witness my first Belly Dancing performance. I was smitten by it. The beautiful dancer, her colorful outfit, her body movements completely in sync with the entrancing sounds of the drums. A heavenly memory that I took with me when I returned home. .........

Featured Belly Dance Article

Why I Love Bellydance!
- by Candice Coleman

I had always been attracted to the idea of belly dance and took a couple of classes when in my 20’s, but like most of my endeavors in those days, I didn’t stick with it. Many years later a boyfriend of mine made the comment, “My Mom belly dances; yup, my Dad’s a lucky guy.” He made it sound like a mathematical equation: Mom bellydances = Dad’s a lucky guy. When I asked him how old his mother was, he said, “65, but you’d never know it.” Somehow hearing this re-inspired me, for real this time, to take up a serious study of bellydancing. The first teacher I located wasn’t a good one. I didn’t give up, though, and found a dancing haven with my first real teacher.
