Recently, Jennifer (Bellydancer in Orlando) contacted me about doing an interview for an extensive research project she was about to begin. One thing I love to do is to geek out and talk all things bellydance with fellow dancers so, of course I agreed. Jennifer asked me to give some thought to the issue of standard movement vocabulary as well as other business issues that career bellydancers face. When the day came, we set up our laptops and connected via Skype. There was giggling, there was some repositioning in order to demonstrate movements, and there was a lot of honesty.
When bellydancers are smart cookies, it helps our community overall. Jennifer is one of those gals who combats lingering stereotypes by showing off her business acumen and hunger for knowledge. I was honored to help her kick off a series of interviews so check out:
