43. Are there style differences between males and females?
Ask 10 male Belly Dancers this question, and you will get at least 11 answers! This is a frequent subject of discussion, debate, and even arguments among both male and female dancers. Some of the discussions on the subject on the Internet become quite heated!Some males have a whole set of rules they follow to appear masculine. Others try their darndest to look feminine. Myself, I let my body dictate what happens. It is impossible for any Belly Dancer to hide from this dance if she is truly dancing and not just going through the motions. One of my instructors tells me that I dance in a masculine, non "froopy" style. I do not worry about it either way Some would think I am "feminine". Fine. If it works for them, it is OK by me. I don't see it that way though.
