If you know me, you know that I belly dance obsessively. I dance primarily tribal fusion, but lately I’ve had an itch to get into more traditional Egyptian belly dance. Here’s why:

I used to say that I’m only able to connect with fusion because its movements are more grounded and earthy, and less “harem-girl”, but now that I’ve grown into my own dance style a bit more, I’ve come to realize that in order to have a more well-rounded knowledge of the dance, coming at it from multiple angles is a wonderful thing.
