This is the bit where I tell you about this forum. I presume that, as you're here, you already know something about it but - humour me ;D
Lotus Flower Belly Dance Forum was set up on the 21st March 2004 with the initial admin and global moderators based in Wrexham, Wales (Wales is quite a wet bit of the UK). The idea of the forum was to get talking to lots of other people who're interested in belly dancing whether it be Middle Eastern, Turkish, North African, Greek, American Tribal Style, Oriental Tribal Style or Romani amongst others.
Lotus Flower Belly Dance forum is open to anyone who wants to chat about styles, costumes, music - anything to do with belly dance. Even if you prefer to call it Raqs Sharqi and take exception to it being called 'belly dance' - come along and say so!
We'll hopefully be getting more input about newer dance styles such as Raqs Gothiqe and Oriental Tribal Style as well as articles about classical and modern Indian Dance.
Whatever your preference - welcome and please feel free to read, post, chat - whatever you like ;D
