Hello Belly Dance Lovers!
Belly Dancing is harder than it looks but it's so much fun! You don't even realise that you're working out :)
I look forward to dancing with you in 2017.
You've got the footwork and the timing. Woohoo! You've nailed the dance right? Then you watch it back on video you're like...why doesn't it look right?
Dancers don't just dance. It takes years to master the flavours and ingredients that make a good dancer. There's so much to think about and it takes a lot of effort to practice the different elements.
I love this infographic which shows characteristics that dancers have to think about - in order to achieve greatness. It's tough work to make it look so effortless...
....Oh and don't forget to breathe :D

Elegance within belly dance stems from good posture. Without good posture you won't be able to achieve elegance. Below is a great infographic of how to improve your posture and what good posture looks like.

Happy new year belly dancer lovers!
Wishing you a healthy, joyful and prosperous 2017. I spent my last few minutes of 2016 performing and saw the new year off with loved ones. Forget the new year's resolutions that you won't keep. Keep it simple. Do more of what you love in 2017!
