Middle Eastern Dance Links

This section of my website contains links to a wealth of belly dance resource material available on the world wide web. Some pages listed here are my own, most are links to others. Some are truly world-wide.

Please remember that Middle Eastern dance does not take place on the internet. It takes place wherever you are watching dance, or dancing yourself. On stage, in a restaurant or nightclub, or at home among close friends; this is the essence of dance. I hope these links help you on your journey to that special place.
