I don't mean in the sense of a 'how-to'. I mean it in a more literal way. For example this week we start with the letters A and B. I will post one or two bellydance terms per letter. Yes I've been watching too much Sesame Street, I know, just humor me.
You post your own words or terms for the assigned letters in the comment section.
We'll do 2 letters every week until get through the alphabet. It's that easy!
To kick off our new column I'm going to throw in a $10 gift certificate (toward classes, privates, etc) to a randomly picked winner from the comment section (comment must contain 3 or more words, terms, etc.).
So again this is what you do:
1. Read the ABC's of Bellydance post of the week containing that week's assigned letters.
2. Post bellydance related terms that start with that letter. For example: bellydance terms, phrases, Troupe names (include info on them), famous or popular bellydance songs, steps, movements -- you get the idea right? It's pretty open. Be funny, be serious, be inspirational. You can even be a little naughty, just a little : )
3. THIS WEEK if in your comment you enter 3 or more terms you may be randomly selected from entries to receive a $10 gift certificate (toward classes, privates, transferrable).
THIS WEEK BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LETTERS A & B
Assiut -- this is sometimes spelled assuit, is an Egyptian textile, fine cotton netting fabric with hand applied hand hammered silver wire. Typically found in black or white.
Assaya -- as in Raks Assaya, is the ever popular Upper Egypt (which is southern Egypt) cane dance.
Beledi -- Middle Eastern rhythm, in Arabic can mean "my country" or "of the country", can be a costume dress style
Bal Anat -- name of dance troupe created in late 60's by Jamila Salimpour. Credited with giving birth to what has evolved into today's "tribal style". In this sense Jamila is known as the mother of tribal.
Now it's your turn. What A & B terms can you share?
