  • 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.
  • 9-1-10 Expanding Traditional and Innovative Approaches, Report from the Theatrical Belly Dance Conference, Part 1: The Panel Discussions, by Thalia
    As with any new label applied to the genre, a question of definition consistently arises from fans and skeptics of the burgeoning theatrical belly dance category. Wisely, the organizers have incorporated panel discussions in the Conference’s roster of events since its formation.

  • 8-27-10 Identity Through Bellydance:An Arab Descendant’s Viewpoint by Lynette Harper PhD
    While some Arab women turn instead to ballet and western contemporary dance, others, like me, have embraced belly dance genres as a way to connect with our cultural heritage–only to disappear behind another veil, because Arab women dance artists in Canada are obscured within a huge belly dance community.
  • 8-26-10 Musical Instrument Tour Video with Tina Chancey
    Director of Hesperus.org, Tina takes a moment from the camp’s busy schedule to tell us the difference characteristics of this style violin from one we normally see. She touches on the different posture used to play and also why she, a professional player of “Early music” is interested in how Arab music and style relates to what she normally plays.

  • 8-25-10 Letting Go of the Towline, Surviving Dance Conflict! by Najia Marlyz
    Still, even though our dance puts us into contact with beloved friends and creative people who bring us continual joy and renewal, Belly dance is also a powerful magnet for some people with serious mental and emotional problems beyond the scope of dance
  • 8-24-10 The Festival That Never Sleeps, The Costumers at the 2010 Ahlan Wa Sahlan Festival by Roza
    There was one thing they all had in common: the most creative, cutting edge, couture related costumes! Egyptians have been making costumes for (possibly) thousands of years, and since Belly dance goes back 5,000 years; why not? They know how it should fit the body, move with the lines and motion, and creative geographic designs are, of course, a Middle Eastern staple. Here in Egypt, all costumes are handmade, one of a kind. The majority of these businesses are family owned, and it’s nice to know costume purchases are helping people in Egypt maintain both this craft and artistic skill and their families.
