Finding Your Bellydance Rhythm - Maqsoum For Beginners
When dancing Egyptian style there are many experts with many rules but time and time again I'm told by Egyptian and middle Eastern people whom I know personally it is all about connection to the music and natural expression. It's different when you are on a stage or putting yourself out there professionally but this post isn't for that, this post is for those of you who just want to find your rhythm and get a glimpse of how to dance to real Egyptian music as apposed to arabic pop or eastern sounds as belly dancers and students we are used to. I don't proclaim to be an expert, I don't take myself or anyone else that serious really but I have experience and am artistic and have a love for music dance and culture. So here is my advice for beginners, for those of you who feel you don't have rhythm or struggle to find rhythm is music used for certain styles of belly dance. Remember you have rhythm inside you that has been there since before your birth. Your heart beat. If you can follow your heart and the rhythm of it you'll be on the right path.
