How To Un-shutter Your Stage Presence
How Opening Your Teeth Can Un-shutter Your Stage Presence
As a new belly dance enthusiast I am learning TONS from this podcast. So many others focus on the choreography or body image or competition. Others speak a lot of the mean-girl-syndrome than apparently is in the industry. That stuff was scaring me off learning at all. This podcast makes me feel like yes I can dance just for the fun of it. :) Thank you!
Btw I love that it’s in snippets and not hour long episodes. Very refreshing to be able to squeeze these in here and there.
Ma’am you are brilliant! Veil and zills in your hands at the same time! This also solves some funky Central Asian prop / costume issues.
Awesome podcast for belly dancers!
You might wonder how a podcast can help you with your dancing, but this one is fantastic! Nadira explores all sorts of topics about belly dance and I’ve learned tons from her podcasts - improv techniques, history and culture behind belly dance, how to think about what you want to get out of your practice and performance, and so much more. I would highly recommend this podcast for all belly dancers of all skill levels.
