For someone just starting to get into belly dancing, what advice can you give? I have been learning from youtube videos and websites since there are no nearby classes. What is the best thing you can do to learn the dance better? How did you learn to bellydance?
Hello sweetie! Well in my opinion it is not big problem to learn without classes if you have some place with good floor and with mirror, so you can learn by practice with videos. I advising you to watch not only some how to or learning videos for practicing but also much better to learn by dances from famous dancers like Zoe jakes or Rachel Brice. Cause it’s absolutely another high level.
Will be great to dance with different music, traditional oriental, metal, pop, rock, classical, etc with different speed of sound. It will be easier for you to find your own comfort style. And for noticing mistakes will be great just record how do you dance on camera and just watch it. For next time you will memorize it and will do it more perfectly.
I came to bellydance fortuitously through ballet, hip hop and traditional folk dances. And now it is most comfort style for me and for metal music what I use mostly.
I’m absolutely self-taught and I did all what I wrote to you when I started. I never tried to be like someone else and tried to do the best I can.
Always remember that all what you need for being good bellydancer is self-control, calmness, concentration and sense of music in your soul. And of cause a lot of practise if it’s not just a hobby :)
Wishing you good luck and it and would be nice to meet with person behind this gray face.
