My belly dancing group is trying really hard to get our name out there. I mean I think its awesome we're on youtube. One of the girls in the group can paint really good and she's going to be doing our logo so we can get merchandise out there. Its all very exciting for me. Dancing has been my passion since I was a child and I've always wanted to open my own dance studio and be famous.. This could be my big break.

I always thought I'd be in a hip hop group or maybe jazz, but never belly dancing. Even though I've been in dancing classes before belly dancing is all new for me. The really cool thing is all 3 of us in the group bring something different into our dancing. So when we come up with new ideas its all very different, but it works. We've been getting together every Saturday to practice. I wish we could get together on the weekdays, but my job is demanding, so I don't have the time.

Our next performance will be on September 22nd and 23rd. It'll be the Pagan Pride Day: Harvest Festival. Looking forward to performing again.. This will be Lunar Shadows 3rd time performing at a big Pagan festival.

One of the girls in the group; her boyfriend plays all sorts of instruments and we really want to start dancing to him playing just the drums. Last Saturday we got together and practiced for the upcoming show in September and we came up with an awesome dance with just him playing the drums. We are so excited to show everyone the new dance. I wish we would have recorded it, but maybe this weekend when we get together and practice again.

A couple of weekends ago we took some really good pics of the group and of ourselves. Got all dressed up and got our makeup done.. It was really fun and the pictures came out sooooooo good. We were pleased.

Anyway, keep Lunar Shadows in your mind.. Hopefully soon we'll have t-shirts and bumper stickers.. YAY!

      That's the thing.. We don't need a teacher. We are just having fun. We aren't doing the traditional belly dancing. We're simply just dancing the way we want. I think we're awesome and if people can't get it or accept it then so be it. Lunar Shadows isn't going anywhere anytime soon. We're here for the long run

      Great hub Meg. Any form of passion or hobby is wonderful and keeps your mind busy. I hope that Lunar Shadows takes off and your able to get some students involved.

      I think Marisa suggestion is a good one. Your troupe might benefit from some classes, so keep this in mind.

      Also, the dance troupe 'Lunar Shadows" is on Facebook too.

      Love ? Mom

      You obviously love to dance and it's a great thing that you've found a group of women you can work with on your passion. I do hope you'll find yourself a good teacher who can develop your skills in Tribal belly dance, because you have a lot to learn about proper belly dance technique. However, with your obvious level of commitment, I'm sure you'll master it in no time.
