Hi Dianna! I started taking a technique based class and I am so happy that I did. It makes it easier for me to play with different styles and see which one suits me best. I would check out rec centers, dance studios and just google it for classes. I personally have a DVD from my instructor that I love doing, its Tribal Fusion Bellydance with Sharon Kihara.
good luck!

Youtube has alot of bellydance items. You can take lessons...or watch performances. You also will be able to check out the different kinds of bellydance...such as tribal.....the way you bellydance is as unique as you are. We all know the moves...but our bodies show it in different ways..our ways! Once you start..you will be hooked.....you will feel very empowered as a women. Very earthy....sensual.....fun!

Yes, rec department is great place to begin, also just google (your city) belly dance. I began learning at a summer fun course offered through the City Park dept, then hooked up with my local SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism), there was a troupe locally who just got together and jammed. Usually at least 1 of your local dance studios will offer BD too. Netflix has at least 1 view on demand BD DVD, and lots more to rent! But do a live one as well, if you can, the energy is great! Side note, if you might like Zumba, the classes are usually offered more frequently and the gals (here at least) all wear our BD jingle belts to class @ the gym, haha, it is noisy but fun! Let us know what you find!!

Hi Dianna... I'm not sure where you live, but check out your local rec dept to see if they offer classes. Maybe a college with an adult ed extension course. There are also some good dvd's (and really bad ones...) out there. Are you familiar with the different styles?
