  • Choosing Finger Cymbals
    Learning finger cymbals can be intimidating for many dancers. It is not just another prop, it is a musical instrument that should be used to enhance the dance and help accent the music. One the major barriers to learning finger cymbals is simply finding a good pair of cymbals that you like.
  • 5-30-10 Building A Dance Community by Mary
    A community does not operate in a vacuum and there is no room for cattiness or drama if the community is to be effective and truly benefit the area as a whole
  • 5-26-10 Dancing with Legends: Interview of Freddie Elias, Part 5: Today’s Music by Artemis Mourat
    If they are good musicians, they will abide by the rules and respect the dancer. We have to work for her, not against her. The young lady depends on you. She depends on the musicians.
  • 5-24-10 Loyalty, A Virtue Out of Fashion? by Beata and Horacio Cifuentes
    Some do not stop to think that it is a matter of basic manners to express your gratitude to an individual who has made an effort to provide well-being and knowledge. They just go and move on to their aerobics classes, horseback riding sessions, judo drills, or other, while the teacher is left behind wondering if any aspect of their lesson caused the pupil to go.
  • 5-18-10 Sula, An Artisic Life by Monica
    Sula continued to study with Bert through the early 1970s, though by 1972 she called him “my ex-teacher and now equal partner”. Bert was extremely proud of Sula, as she was among the first students he trained who began teaching seriously.
  • 5-17-10 A Bust to Be Proud of… by Yasmin Henkesh
    When she introduces me to her dance friends, it’s the first story out of her mouth – eighteen years after the fact. We still laugh about it.
  • 5-10-10 IBCC 2010, Wednesday April 21, Opening Gala Report From The International Bellydance Conference of Canada by Gilded Serpent Staff
    Because Gilded Serpent didn’t quite make it to the hall until the show was over, we are very grateful that
    Brigid Kelly consented to give us her report from the Wednesday evening performancec. The dance photos overlayed on this video are by Samira Hafezi.
  • 5-6-10 Queen of Denial, A Tale about Life and Belly Dancing, Part 1: The Safety of the Stage by Rebaba or Rita Alderucci
    For many years, the most secure and safe place for me was on stage–dancing and acting. Performing gave me the security and love for which I yearned (both with and without drugs).
  • 5-5-10 Bellydance in Utero by Keti Sharif
    When pregnant, I practiced Belly dance moves each day in preparation for giving birth, mainly focusing on the circular, soothing and stretching movements but avoiding shimmies and moves that were contra-indicated by midwives and sports professionals.
  • 5-3-10 A Very British Kind of Bellydance by Charlotte Desorgher
    This incongruity is something that characterizes the English bellydance scene. Many of our festivals are held in historic sites, such as castles or ancient towns, and we are used to the surprising sound of Arabic music floating across an English lawn.
  • 5-2-10 IBCC 2010, Thursday Activities Report From The International Bellydance Conference of Canada by Gilded Serpent Staff
    We begin our video reports with the Thursday Activities: dance workshops by Amel Tafsout, Sema Yildiz, Delilah, and Aurora Ongaro lectures on The Anatomy of Bellydance, Dr Sawa on Rhythmic Notation for Bellydancers, Shira on Mass Media, Mass Stereotypes and a Panel on Feminism & BD led by Andrea Deagon,
