The first post…

… in which I explain why I am writing this blog.

I am a dancer.

I am a belly dancer.

I dance for self expression, for exercise, to heal my soul, for all sorts of reasons, but most of all because I love it.

This blog is a journey of exploration about what dance is, what it means to me and the roles it plays in my life.  I am also curious about how this plays out on the wider social stage: why do we dance? what roles does dance play in our society? in other societies? and on…

My focus will be mainly on belly dance/Middle Eastern Dance/raqs sharqi, as this is my dance style, experience and vocabulary.  However, I will do my best to be inclusive.  There will be tangents and side journeys.

Please join with me as I explore – your comments are welcome.
