How long have you been dancing?

I'm a wallflower, and am very self-conscious about dancing anywhere except in my apartment, with the shutters closed, to Michael Jackson (his OLD STUFF!)

Have you preformed at any public events? If so, where?

No, not as a dancer. I'll leave this up to my mother, who is an actress and artist.

What is your favorite bellydance style or fusion?

Hum. I have no idea. However, any BellyDance which has a beautiful woman performing it would probably be fine with me ; )

Who have you studied with? Yousery Sharif, Mahmoud Reda, Morocco, Tarik Sultan, Ariana al Tiye, Nounhan Sharif, Rayhana, Gamila El Masri, Jehan, Anahid Sofian, . . .

Unfortunately, I've neither studied BellyDancing nor am a good dancer. However, I did take one of Athena Najat's BellyDance Workshops, and I do know how to roll my stomach! : )

What are you looking to gain from this club?

I'd like to make new friends, while learning to dance. I'd very much like to learn the Dabke, the most popular Arab folk dance in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Palestine.

Introduction

Because I love the art of Middle Eastern Dance. I also have many friends who are professional BellyDancers. I thought I'd rejoin this community, as I'd bee a part of it years ago, and even one of it's previous organizers!

What Michael Kim Jamal R. is saying about this Meetup Group

As the new Organizer of this Club, I'm still getting to know all our Members. However, those whom I've met so far have been very nice. I had a lot of fun at the first Event I organized for the Club on December 7th. I hope we can continue to grow this Club as we have a lot of potential!
