Belly Dance New England: A One Stop Source of Info on Belly Dancing and the Music That Goes with It

February 10, 2010 at 7:21 pm Leave a comment

The Belly Dance New England web site aims to be a catch-all for information related to belly dancing in the New England area. True to its word, it provides listings and articles related to many different aspects of the art. From a world music/dance perspective,  you’ll find a ton of info here. First and foremost, there are local event listings both on the homepage and in the calendar section. There’s also a nifty little feature area entitled Sequins of Events (love the clever play on words here) which contains articles of miscellaneous interest, including additional event announcements, reviews and other news items. For a list of individual dancers and their performance dates, you can check out this link. By the way, if you’re still looking for opportunities to support the Haitian relief efforts, they have provided a separate listing for such benefit events specifically.

Looking for a great way to express yourself, get exercise, and at the same time be able to listen to lots of Middle Eastern music? Why not take up belly dancing for a little fun. I do, myself,  and absolutely love it! The best part though, I have to admit, is just moving my body to all that wonderful Arabic music. Belly Dance New England can get you started in this wonderful activity with their listings of teachers and available classes, as well as local vendors which specialize in belly dance oriented products, including music. 

I also want to make special mention here of this music education link. What a great place to explore if you just want to learn more about the belly dance music genre in general, or as it relates to the New England scene locally. Now that I  have given you some of the highlights of all that Belly Dance New has to offer to the world music listener, go ahead and poke around the web site and see what you can discover for yourself! Subscribe to their RSS feed for event updates and/or to their bi-monthly online magazine, for more in-depth information from the belly dance world.
