Welcome to the team & SP! I've been amateuring it for decades & while I wouldn't mind classes, they're just not in the cards any time soon. The worst part is I live near an area with a variety of classes! *sigh* Oh well, it'll happen when the time is right. In the meantime, have FUN with it! Lauri

I'm sure that having a real live person to coach / teach is really worth it and that videos alone probably won't do it. The nearest city is quite far away and last time I checked there were no classes or workshops...
I'm pretty new on SP (joined a few days ago) and completely new to belly dancing. I decided to start belly dancing after reading this on Amiras's website : "Through bellydance, women can see themselves from the inside out and not the other way around, thus more easily appreciate their bodies and feel beautiful. Inner beauty develops from having a non-judgmental attitude, confidence, self-respect and self-love." I'm in a place where I need to connect to my body, learn to love and respect and take care of it. I don't have that much weight to lose but I definitely need a shift in how I see and feel about my body; it's not just body image issues, it goes deeper than that and I feel that belly dancing, joining SP and starting to exercise, eat healthier food, pampering is a great add on to the work I do in therapy. Amira's 101 DVD arrived today through the mail, as well as the instructional DVD by Jillina and I'm really looking forward to starting dancing !
