It seems that learning belly dancing for many is synonymous with "performance"!
There are so many things we do in life privately whether it's our workouts, dancing, cooking ...etc but we never bring to the public eye. Why is it that many other people make these basic life activities a "public matter" including dance.
Many dance for fun, fitness, social life ... etc and never dream or think of performing. So what makes one step up on stage and perform? Why do you perform?
