And sometimes the universe tells you to dance

  1. Thank you for the mention, Atisheh, I really appreciate it. For those interested in inspiration (of the non-breathing kind) and authenticity, I want to mention an essay, “Advice for Dancers,” excerpted from my instructional/reference DVD, “Beautiful Technique.” http://naturalbeautybellydance.blogspot.com/p/advice-for-dancers.html

    The DVD itself covers breathing (literal inspiration!) too. Available from the producer, World Dance New York, from Amazon, or for those able to spend a few extra dollars to support an artist directly, from me, either via http://autumnward.blogspot.com/p/dvds.html or for those with whom I cross paths beyond the internet, from me in person. Middle Atlantic: I'll be teaching in Ocean City, Maryland at the “Art of the Belly” conference at the end of March.

  2. Oh wow, Ananke, that post really hits the spot! I was in class today, and my teacher was working with us on technique, but then also telling us to do it “easy”, lighter, more effortlessly. I realised I've been so trained to be really conscious of the muscular movement, that I forget I'm allowed to make the movements light and easy too sometimes. (I do that at home, not so much in class.) I'll go leave a comment on Gina's blog too — which I didn't know about, so thanks for that tip too.
