I saw two posts earlier in the #belly dance tag that had me fuming. One user asking if there were other “fat” belly dancers out there because she was the “only fat one in her class” as well as a post before THAT regarding to one of the local dance studios performing at Camelot Days last year,…
Belly dance isn’t about looking like a model on stage, its about the movement and how you interpret the music. A lot of dancers are fit because its a great form of exercise, but that is not what makes the dancer beautiful.
Just please don’t ever stop dancing because you become self conscious.
Edit: I’m sorry that came across as offensive, thats not what I meant to do at all.
I love it so much, it my life, it’s everything to me. Its something I love doing and could never ever get tired of. I love expressing/letting my emotions out when I’m dancing. I love performing. I feel like nothing and no one could bring me down. It has changed me in so many ways and for the better. I don’t think anyone understands how much I love belly dancing.
