It's ME time!

Welcome to Brenda Little Egypt.  Look around & you'll get an idea of my personality and what I've been doing for 17 + years :).  What I've learned owning a dance studio is to look at everything as an opportunity and just roll with it.  Dips & turns are part of life and the sooner you know it's coming around the corner (like all the time) the sooner you will learn to let go and ride with it.

“Belly Dance” is known in the Middle East as Raks Sharki (Rahks Sharr-kee) which literally means “dance of the East”, or “Oriental” dance. The name “belly dance” may have originated from the French phrase “danse du ventre” (dance of the belly) because of the movement of the torso. This label is inaccurate as Oriental dance involves movement of the entire body, with more emphasis on the hips than on the belly. Although the exact area of origin is controversial, what is acknowledged and agreed upon is that Oriental dance is one of the oldest dances still thriving today.

In the Middle East, people dance to express joy. There are also professional dancers who are hired to perform at weddings and other celebrations. In the West, dance is studied formally in classes; in the Middle East, children learn to dance from relatives and friends at social gatherings as a part of their culture.

A traditional Oriental dance performance consists of several musical changes. Depending on the performance venue, the dance show could consist of several parts (entrance/balady/taksim/drum solo/finale) or simply a couple of songs.

You don't have to show your mid-section to Belly Dance!

Slowly, we learn to stop dancing, to stop singing, to forget the enchantment of story and to fill our lives with noise.  The irony is that advances in society--whether in science, technology, education, politics or the arts-are born from the generation of new ideas.  The fixedness of behavior and thought patterns block creativity.  This is sometimes humorously referred to as sychosclerosis' or hardening of the attitudes.
 
There has been a lot of research done on creativity.  The studies prove that everyone is capable of tapping into his or her creative spirit.  This finding contradicts the popular notion that innovation is only possible for the Gifted' or the Genius.

Our Philosophy

Dance is good for the soul as it is for the body, so we created an environment where women are free and safe to explore their femininity, find their inner grace and revel in their beauty. We all deserve a chance to dance!

 

You will be in a  supportive, positive, and fun learning environment with encouragement. Focus is on body awareness, proper alignment and posture. We look forward to meeting you in class – "boom shaka boom baby! 

*******************************************************

When the music is hot & the energy of the group engulfs the room, I feel a high I hope every dancer in the room shares with me.  For me dance is not cerebral, but highly emotional.  I hope my students find my classes to be an oasis in a world of stress, competition and struggle.

COME PLAY WITH US & LET YOUR AURA SHINE!

A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her
face.....but a woman of strength wears grace...

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough
for the journey...
but a woman of strength has faith that
it is in the journey that she will become strong.

Dancing with grace should attract admiration not lust.

"What is Belly Dance"?

Kimberly

 

 

Bellydancing is about sensuality not sexuality, but it is up to the individual to conduct herself/himself in a manner appropriate to the occassion.  We must strive to leave some things to ones own imagination, which in bellydance is beautiful, intimate & powerful.
