you know, if you are downloading music, you can get some great middleastern music on the web. I love the Diana Hadad video "Mani Mani"-so much fun to dance to- and the gestures are sooo not in my cultural reference! There's is a wealth of bellydance performances on the web for free as well.

Amother fun pop video is by Hisham Abbas- "Nari Naren". It's mostly Indian bollywood dancing, but an awesome source for costuming!
( ok, ok, it's corny and fun to watch, there, I said it) emoticon

There will be some duds and some gems - I think we've also got some recommendations and a review or two posted in our reference thread on here.

NETFLIX! That's my answer to purchasing a DVD, possibly hating it.. just rent it and try it out. I have several belly dance instructional type DVDs on their way as we speak. I haven't ever tried bellydancing, but the doctor I work with takes a class once a week, and the weight is absolutely falling off of her! I will try to remember to tell ya'll which DVDs are good. I am sure there will be a few duds.

I hate research...LOL. I have not checked out that website so I will look at it when I get home from work today. I don't have not seen a Ross around here but I will google it to see if there is one near by. I never though of using Youtube.

I will also find my local library. Yes I have lived here for over 3 months & I don't really know my way around.

Thanks

Have you tried www.shira.net to look for a teacher nearby??? That's usually the most up-to-date resource.

Also, YouTube has got lots of BD videos if you get bored with whatever you buy. On the cheap side - if you've got a Ross Dress for Less nearby, they usually have several BD videos on their rack at EXTREMELY good prices. (You can invest in more that way! LOL)

OHIOJANE I beleive you are a lot better than you are letting on emoticon . I am trying to find a class close to me, but I am also going to break down and buy a DVD. I just get bored with DVDs (of any exercise) really fast. It is like a waste of $. Maybe a bellydance DVD will be different.

Then we can all say, in all honesty, that we're having a ball, when we're at work... Or does that sound odd? Hum. Maybe it does.

I like the image, though. The new office chair. The CEO would of course insist on a special ball that looked more expensive than the other balls.

That aside. I've been looking up belly dance moves on line, and I'm trying to put together a program of a few moves, to start doing for cardio.

Judging from the little bit I've tried, this is a lot harder now, in my overweight 40's, than it was when I was a skinny 20-something. I looked at myself in the mirror while attempting to shimmy, and I could really see which parts were... um.. "extra" and which were actually the real me, underneath. Wow, what a weird sight. But healthy, no doubt.

I also realized why belly dancers wear strong bra's.

My dance teacher is an RN and they use stability balls to sit on at work... I just picture them rolling all over the office. I know she has an office so I'm sure it stays put on the carpet. I have to use mine when no one is watching. I am always falling off of it.

you know I would love to get a stability ball for my desk at work. I'm the receptionist though so i'm not sure how professional that looks.

Although in my eyes I think its a very responsible slightly profesional thing to take care of your body.

I love that it wore a seat belt and then you sat on it, when you got it into the office. lol!

Actually, I think what you did is cool. It takes guts to do that, and I bet it is good for you. Who knows, others may try the same, once they see, that it's possible.

I don't own a ball, but I would definitely not end up falling asleep at my desk if I was sitting on one. Come to think of it, some bosses might get balls instead of chairs, just to "motivate" their workers... Okay, I think I sprained a muscle in the brain. I think too much.

I love belly dancing. I figured this would be a good way to help me lose weight. Doing something that I enjoy. I've done a few videos but no classes yet. I would like to learn more about the different styles before taking a class. Do you any of you know a good instructor in the Maryland DC area?

Hi everyone thanks for the welcome I don't know how to belly dance(yet) but have always wanted to learn so I'm getting myself a tape and am ready to learn how to shimmy and shake off some pounds!!

I was really excited to find this team since the other Spark team I participated in pretty much folded. I enjoy belly dance and attend class once a week. My teacher is making a new site for our studio and when it is up I'll post the link. I am interested in being fit and eating properly and I think all this goes hand in hand. I know some of you that have been on this site for a while have a nice friendship with each other and hope all of us "newbies" can gain from you and give as well. Thanks for having this team.

Good morning everyone! I'm fairly new to belly dancing as well. I've been here a little more than a month and I take a tribal style class once a week.

I just wanted to say Welcome to everyone. This is a great team and I hope you enjoy your stay.

Wow. I just looked at the size of the group! It really DID balloon!

Welcome to everybody! You'll find everybody here very busy but very friendly, too. It's always good to talk bellydance when we're not actually dancing!Keeps us on our toes... now to get that choochoo shimmy going while we're up there!...

Hi. Thank you for the welcome posts on my page, I appreciate them, and also for the helping hand reached out to me already.

I should introduce myself. I have been a member of Spark People for 30 days and I am a pretty active member at Psychic Sparkers. I even host and co-host two topics there.

I have been talking about belly dance for a while now, so I decided to finally take the step and start learning, now that this group was featured.

I know nothing about belly dance, other than there are different schools and styles. I've never taken a class and I won't become great overnight. I plan on learning one little move at the time, and put together a series of moves, to get the pulse up, and get more limber and agile in the process.

I've noticed your "exercise of the day/week" challenge and it looks ideal for me.

Hopefully, I will be able to become a positive member here and give a little bit back to the group, if I can.

My best wishes to everyone, and I hope all of us new members will be able to make this place even more fun and active. It already looks like a really nice place.

Well, like Jane, I don't have time to do an individual welcome to each new member we've had today - the population in our village here truly exploded!

I really look forward to getting to know each and every one of you - and don't worry about experience level - we're all dancers at heart, and that's a major unifying factor for the whole sisterhood.

Hi, there! I've been on SP for about a month now and saw this team featured today. I've always adored watching belly dancing but have only recently started trying to do it myself. I really look forward to reading the posts here and staying motivated :)

Minions! I need minions! Barring that, I'll take a non fat sugar free chai latte.
