  • Ask Yasmina #12: The Importance of Oum Kalthoum, Undercutting, and Kid Bellydancers
    When a client hiring a performer or a student looking for a teacher is at a point where they want quality, they know they have to pay a fair price.
  • Sticky Situations: Ask Yasmina #11- Inappropriate Audience Members, Competitive Teachers, Fickle Students
    Trying to please and appease those who already disrespect you leads to a miserable dead end. My advice is to say "NO" and give the inappropriately behaved person a good wack across the face.
  • Ask Yasmina #10: Bellydance Business, Finding Musicians, Certification
    This experience has made me very wary ever since of people with certificates.
  • 7-18-10 Belly Dance in Patriarchy, Escaping the Switzerland of the Soul by Andrea Deagon PhD
    However, I do believe that belly dance is able to attain such vitality and complexity in the modern world precisely because it’s embroiled in serious cultural and personal contestations. It is precisely clashes of aesthetic values, conflicting paradigms of sexuality and gender, and economic as well as political inequities that strike the dance’s most beautiful notes.
  • 7-15-10 Sema Yildiz, A Star of Turkish Dance by Zumarrad/ Brigid Kelly
    She was fortunate, she says, to grow up in a Roma (Gypsy) community rich in dance and music – the Fatih district, which houses the Sulukule, famous for its entertainment and considered the oldest Roma settlement in the world.
  • 7-15-10 Queen of Denial, Chapter 2: Dancing in the “City of Lights” by Rebaba
    I’m breathing very hard, and can tell I’m very, very shiny and red, even under the stage lights, but I think he likes me. And he is completely dumbfounded that an “American” girl is auditioning for a job as a “Danseuse Oriental!” I know I’m way too fat, but thank God I’m a belly dancer, and apparently a novelty, because I couldn’t get away with this in any other dance form! Fortunately, I’m only 19 years old and my excess flesh is young, tan and firm!”
  • 7-12-10 Fusion: How much is too much? by Najia Marlyz
    In America, and evidently elsewhere, we dancers seem to have a voracious appetite for new steps and movements, so like hungry chipmunks, we have grabbed all we could stuff into our cheeks of Turkish and Arabic steps and gestures, resorting to incorporating and mixing of Saidi, Kaleedgi, Blue Guedra, Ghawazi, etc. We’ve chewed all of them up together and spit them out and found that they have not sufficiently nourished us.
