Car V-log: Dancing and eating disorders


BBC broadcasted a documentary about eating disorders among ballet dancers and a lot of attention was directed to the documentary and article especially among ballet dancers.

The fact is eating disorders are not common in the ballet dancing community or just the dance community. It is a much broader problem with complicated issues associated with it that could be talked about for hours, days and even years ...

Here is my take on it in the belly dance community ...

what do you think? I would love to hear from you

Theater belly dancing: the new big belly dance trend


The belly dance performance world seems to have come to a halt for awhile after the Bellydance Superstars vanished and all that was left in their legacy were products!

However there were amazing talented dancers in the group that still had a lot of creativity left in them and decided to take it to a new direction leading to the new belly dance trend: Theater Bellydance!


Belly Talk: I don't know what my style is!


 Most new belly dancers focus so much of their energy in figuring out the basic moves, costumes and style! Many struggle in trying to "define their style". As you get introduced to the tribal, traditional, fusion ... etc , yous tart to ask the questions, so what is my style?

Let's talk ....

Learn to belly dance: what are oblique crunches?


 Belly dance moves are always tricky to name and it is very unfortunate that the names of different moves are not standardized.

And here is an example I got few questions about: what are belly dance oblique crunches? I am sure you already know them with a different name :)

Watch the video to see if you do :)


Lean to belly dance: what is the core?


 We talk a lot about the core in exercise and dance but what does it exactly mean? There is more to the core than you think as each muscle works as a group in the body with supporting muscles that help stabilize it. So it's important not to talk about "abs" only but the supporting muscles as well that make up the "Core" muscle groups.

Listen to the video here for more details.

Harem pants for belly dance and street style

 

I am loving harem pants and I am sure you would to :) They have become my ultimate comfort pants for dance practice, street style and even for a night out 



Harem pants are the ultimate slouchy pants. If you need comfort especially for movement and dance, they are perfect!

Known mostly in the Middle East as the "MEN" pants, they made their way to the Western fashion world as a the Bohemian chic must have wardrobe item.

Here are some ideas of how they are worn street style and some fun one to shop for on Amazon.
