Our next performer is Jewel, from Melbourne. I often think a ballet background is a handicap to a belly dancer, because ballet is very “up” whereas belly dancing needs to be earthy. Jewel has no such problem, retaining the gracefulness and discipline of a ballet dancer yet staying grounded.
I’ve attended Jewel’s belly dance workshops and can attest that Jewel is an excellent teacher and generous in sharing her knowledge in other ways – if you aspire to teach yourself, I recommend you read her article about her own experiences on her website.
