Calling all divas who love belly dance and those who have always wanted to learn. We are belly dancers, belly dance enthusiasts, teachers, students, creators of costumes, art, and jewelry. We are lifetime learners who love our craft and wish to GROW, enjoy, and share our gifts within our own community and with the larger community. We love live music, dancing, and performance. We welcome both women and men (yes, men belly dance and many do it quite well). This group is all about FUN, creativity, and sharing. This will be a supportive community where we work to build each other up and appreciate the beauty in all of us, not tear each other down. Activities will include: attending classes together, attending live performances/haflas, workshops, learning about the origins and history of different types of belly dance (Turkish, Egyptian, American Tribal Style (ATS), Tribal Fusion, etc., costume making activities, attending festivals and fairs, and hopefully learning some drumming as well. Seeking teachers and professionals to help get this started so sign up and let's get shimmying. For helpful tips, tutorials, videos, etc, like my page on FB called For The Love of Belly Dance. https://www.facebook.com/groups/476715185827775/?fref=ts
Note: This group is not for solicitation purposes. Please do not join in order to find performers for your events and shows. You can do this on your own by searching for performers online or contacting local performers in your area. This is a community meant to be supportive and safe, and belly dancers are often sought for inappropriate events and circumstances. If you attempt to solicit anyone in this group, no matter how legitimate you believe your event to be, you will be removed. No exceptions. Thank you.
