    Don’t know where the musicians come from, but Ansuya is based in Miami FL. Here’s a link to her page:


    She teaches classes in person, DVD and BellySkype if you want to get your shimmy on.

    Nice dancing. I think it might have been on your blog that I found another video of belly dancing and I purchased it and forgot about it. This makes me want to open it up and try it for the exercise benefits.

    Oh that brought back memories. I took belly dancing classes for awhile…and discovered that my lack of dancing talent was completely across the board! 🙂

    I don’t know that I consciously try to challenge stereotypes. I’ve been called eccentric, weird, strange…and I don’t care. I don’t fit any mold and I’m okay with that. I try to make my characters unique, too. Mostly normal, but with their own quirks and differences.

      I use to take classes too- I wan it get back into it, when I have more time.
      I think making your characters unique is the best way to push a stereotypes without being obvious. Yeah for all the eccentric, strange, unique peole in the world.
