don't feel pressured...bellydancing is to be enjoyed but first and foremost by you..when i first started i had people put that pressure on me to "perform"..i think the pressure was they expected to see fire and brimstone..lol...or maybe that is what i thought they expected....do the basic steps and add your own flair and dance for whoever you want to....it only works when you feel good and confident...i agree, get a couple of other dancers...maybe beginners who do want to perform and try something easy...the more the better sometimes..plus you won't feel under the gun...so to speak..

I agree, if you're not comfortable, don't do it!

If you do want to do something, you might just bring out a hip scarf for both you girls and put on some music with a good beat and have everyone dance. Just for fun.

I think I would just be honest with them and say "I am still a beginner and beginner students do not perform for the public."

You don't OWE anybody a performance. Just tell them no and be firm. Tell them when you are more advanced, you would be happy to perform, but not now.

Enjoying every single moment I can with my husband and little boy!
