68. Are you not belly dancers like strippers?
Many people are a bit apprehensive about belly dance. That is understandable! This dance comes from a completely different culture which developed in a completely different way than what we are used to in the West. Many times, people are not sure it is ok to watch a belly dancer, let alone allow their children to watch! However, children are the best audience members. They enjoy the shiny and brightly colored costuming, the props, and the sounds that come with this dance. I have found that having a child in the audience, watching intently and cheering with glee, is one of the most rewarding things I have experienced. Keep in mind, your three year old has not yet been trained to think a bare midriff and moving hips is taboo. Chances are he or she has already seen cheerleaders and music videos more risqué than your friendly neighborhood belly dancer.
