Discovery and Goosebumps with Jo Green!
As guest editor for this blog—Taking Tribal Global—this is the bit that brings you lots of cool stuff including chat and stories from Tribal Bellydancers from around the world, I invite you into my Dance Den, my virtual cubbyhole, to think and discuss Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance (TM) goodness.
Hello and welcome to Deirdre’s Dance Den, a hive of activity of drilling, prepping and practicing as the dance year is in full flow, and I’m loving the buzz! I’m also reminding myself to take some time out to smell the roses (or dig up the weeds in my garden more like!) So that I can stay fresh for my students and for myself and my family.
I received a great story to share from Jordanka (Jo) Green who currently lives in the UK in England (Thornbury, Bristol) having grown up in Bulgaria where she says “oriental music and hips on fire are a normal way of life.”
This is a safe place to share stories of Gypsy Caravan Tribal Bellydance (TM) and I invite everyone involved in the dance to share their journeys, whether you are new, seasoned, a student, a leisure dancer, a teacher, even a mate and a supporter cheering from the sides. Getting different perspectives on music, costuming, practice, classes, dance lifestyles opens up not only those that put their own words down on paper but allows us readers to gain a different angle and insight, perhaps flashing back to a great memory or sparking an idea. We’ve gone global so lets think big!
