Bellydancers Blogs from around the world!

Since I have been doing this blogging thing for a whilenow, I have come to the conclusion that I can't be the only blogging bellydancer in the world.

I am not talking about blogs which have a mention or 2 of bellydance in them- actually real live dancers who actually write about what they are up to- not just publicise stuff for sale- be it workshops, performances or costumes etc etc (ok I know I do other these things too- but you know what I mean!!!!!!!!!!!)

….. so after an hour or so (ok, call it 3 or more!) sitting surfing, I have come up with some other bellydancing blogs for your blogging delight…………. In no particular order (well- apart from the 1st one of course!!!!) …………

www.bellylorna.blogspot.com – me!!!

www.naimasbellydanceblog.blogspot.com – great, well written and fun and informative!

www.elektrasbellydanceblog.blogspot.com – Not updated recently- but a few interesting thought on what bellydance is about and how it should be taught…….

www.bellydancertaaj.blogspot.com – a feisty character with some good advice! Very enjoyable read.

www.shimmyblog.org – a regular and interesting blogger on all matters dance and learning bellydance.

www.bellydancerlessons.blogspot.com – interesting if you too have started bellydance lessons recently- she seems very good at practicing…. And I LOVE the idea of practicing in the dark!!!!!!

www.howtobellydance.enchantmentunlimited.com – this one has a list of how to do it- for beginner bellydancers….. and tips on music and costumes..

www.belly-babes.co.uk/blog.html - a UK based site with some interesting blog entries including 'choosing a dancing name'!

www.bellydanceblogs.net – This one kind of takes the fun out of surfing for bellydance blogs- but gets you where you want to be very quickly! A whole listing of LOTS of bellydancing blogs (knew someone had to have got there before me!) - and easy step by step in case you are inspired after reading all this to make up your own blog too!



Oh- and I came across these on my blog search- some websites of the other dancers who work at the same place as me- interesting how their experiences echo mine !!!

www.joanabellydance.com – from Portugal.

www.outiofcairo.com – from Finland.


This blog list is of course by no means exclusive and please don’t feel offended if I haven't mentioned yours- just tell me about it and I'll add it on!

I am all for scratching backs…. And if people fancy linking my blog onto theirs in return for the mention, although not compulsory of course- I'd be deeply grateful!!!

Thanks for the nod. I like to see dance blogs from dancers in different countries. Seeing the same dance in different cultural settings is very interesting =)

Great list, thanks!
I added you to my Links page, it's only fair cause I really enjoy reading your blog. My blog ( http://www.bellysophie.com ) is not updated regularly, but I try to make it interesting with articles about local dancers, trip accounts and workshop and video reviews.

I've just started a new blog at http:/bellydanceoz.com. I've set it up undated, as I want all the dancers to have equal billing, and not disappear into archives!

My dream is to have a site that's funded by my eBay store, but its main purpose will be to showcase Australian belly dancers. The hard part is finding videos so I can set up the profiles!

Happy to link to other blogs if you link to me!

Hi! Mine is a mostly-bellydance blog, and since I've started I've focused mainly on reviews of DVDs. (I'm kind of an exercise DVD junkie!) There's some more general stuff in there too, but the main thread is my true love -- bellydance. Check it out if you're curious:
