I love belly dancing! Any other belly dancers out there? Feel free to post whether you're a nublet or professional ^-^

What type of styles do you guys like? Who are your favorite dancers? What are your favorite outfits? Which dance techniques or routines are your favorites? Do you practice for work out, job or for leisure?

Be respectful of all body types! Belly dancing outfits are quite revealing and the routines can be sensual. Certain body types appeal to some but not others, so don't judge or be disrespectful.

Here are my favorite videos:

First Sadie video. She's the reason I'm into it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_m01onzSdE

No, but I have seen some stuff on tv, and my friend used to belly dance.
It might be something I'll look into once I graduate though.

Ahh, ok.

Yeah, I'm usually pretty impressed with belly dance routines that keep my attention. The ones on tv must be really good because I tend to finish watching those instead of flipping channels or finding a different video.

Yeah, I'll even watch the ones on T.V. but it's usually at 3 in the morning. It looks fun

Yeah. I like working out to it because I don't really feel like I'm working out but just dancing. It's something I'm fairly good at, so that helps, too.

I want to get some in-person lessons for traditional style belly dancing some day :]
Don't you got to have an a** to belly dance?
I really love tap and swing. I find it liberating and classy. Hopefully I'll be able to get lessons in the near future.
For clothing I love the black pants, white button up shirt, and suspenders or tie attire. It's charming and gives off that "working man" vibe. Looks great on a slender build, too.

How long have you been belly dancing for?
can you teach me??!?

There are plenty of how-to videos on youtube, too. I'll get those in the OP.
I've been interested in tribal fusion belly dance for a while. I want to take a class in my area once I'm out of school smile
