Thanks Aisha from Greece!

If you didnt go to any of Aisha's performance certainly you missed a great show! Aisha was
in Australia for a special Tour and she performed in the main restaurants in Sydney...myself and Cristina Ramon (Samba dancer) also participated of the shows with a fusion of Bellydance and Samba.

I would like to thank Aisha for her suberb professionalism and also for providing a fantastic performance to Australian audience...

Thanks for and Eurobis for supporting this art and bringing over a top bellydancer artist!

And finally thanks for all friends that came over to watch us and support our bellydance community! If everyone helped each other certainly we would have more events like this happening in Sydney!

My favourite videos

I'm addicted to Youtube. Are you? I suppose all bellydancers spend hours and hours seeking for new videos, new inspirations, new moves...definately youtube is a great source for research! Well, I have seen
so many good dancers around the world...and I would love to share with you what I have been looking at recently! If you have any good video to share here, please send it to me and I would be happy to post it! This is my favourite from this week...I visited Aida's website but it is all in other language...unfortunately I dont know much from here but I think she is a great dancer...what do you think??

Teacher Training Certification Intensive

How important is to be prepared to teach belly dance? Do I feel enough prepared to teach?

These are some questions you must ask yourself before entering the teaching world. It is not an easy task and definetely it is not only shaking your hips that will guarantee that you are a good teacher. There are many other elements involved such as: choosing the right methodology, how you communicate with your students, how you assist them and how you perceive their process of learning and so on.
I had teachers that simply asked us to copy what she was doing without teaching the process of the this teaching?? Noooooooooooooo

Well, I am only talking about this topic because we have a excellent coourse coming up in May:
Teacher Training Certification Intensive
Mon 3rd & Tue 4th May 2010
