Interesting information: I love bellydance because it is all inclusive. When I started learning I was fifteen, my teacher was sixty three. She inspired me immensely and I knew it was something I could do for the rest of my life. I have met some of my closest friends through this dance and it has also assisted me with giving birth twice. As I grow older I understand more and more what my first teacher Sylvia told me, that as I had more life experience my dance would grow and develop following whatever was happening to me. It is turning into an interesting journey!
