It's time for the next installment of our ABC project but before we continue I want to thank everyone who dropped by and especially those of you who took time to share your input via your comments. There were some really great additions to our little glossary. Thanks so much!
Also it's time to announce last week's winner. Anyone who contributed 3 or more terms in their comment qualified to be randomly selected to win a prize.
So the $10 raksgina.com class gift certificate goes to Laura Everett . Congrats! I will be contacting you to make arrangements.
This ABC column was going to be just a quick fun glossary project but it seems to be getting a little more interesting. Giveaways! There are things happening behind the scenes to bring you some great treats in the following weeks of the ABC column!
Of course with that said this week, if you choose to contribute, it will have to be just for the plain old fun of it. The prize giving starts next week --- and wow what a great prize --stay tuned for that one. More on that later.
No onto our ABC's…
A reminder of how you can make yourself heard and be a part of this glossary:
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 : )
THIS WEEK BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LETTERS C & D
Commitment - The only way to achieve success in whatever stage of bellydance you are in. Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned veteran you commit to practice, to study, to grow, to respect, to learn, to love this dance.
Carioca -- As in "Tahiya Carioca". The term Carioca refers to natives of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil but also to a type of dance with brazilian/latin footwork that was famous during her time (think Carmen Miranda). Tahiya was so adept at incorporating these steps into her dance that "Carioca" became part of her name.
Darbouka - Also known as 'doumbek'. These are the Middle Eastern terms for this goblet drum. The body of the drum is made of either aluminum or ceramic. The head of the drum is plastic or sometimes fish or goat skin.
What are your C and D bellydance terms?
