Featured in 'The New Indian Express Chennai ' today. Thanks to Thushara for the write up and my hosts of the upcoming Chennai workshop High Kicks Dance Ensemble / Madras Dance Arts, Aparnaa Nagesh.
Not very happy with the headline though. I know belly dance is sensual but it's important to have everyone understand the difference between being sensual and vulgar. Belly Dance has so many qualities why only the sensual part of it is highlighted. These are the misconceptions we need to target to change. Belly Dance is beautiful and it has many layers, any emotion can be expressed through Belly dance whether it's sadness, anger, happiness, jealousy, amazement, resentment ... Name it you have it. Please don't put Belly Dance in a one box of 'sensuality '. It's much much more, much much more. Please note the workshop date has been rescheduled and will be announced very soon. Excited to have edition 2 of my workshop in Chennai. #chennaiexpress #thenewindianexpress #newspaper #bindubolar #tribalfusionbellydance #Tribalina #respectart #myths #bellydancer #misconceptions #bellydance #Bellydanceismuchmore #Workshop
