Hip scarves offer a lot less distraction than coin skirts. I would start with the scarf. Even better, for a true beginner, start with loose fitting shorts... you won't be as self conscious while you learn new moves... especially the all time great "shimmy"! Then when you are relaxed with your body, move on to traditional clothing. Good luck with your new endeavor <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />


To learn is to live, follow your path, trust your faith and be true to yourself.

This is wonderful!! You are going to love every moment of your new journey.

As MeSheWolf said, a scarf would be perfect for you. Select one that is not so heavy with coins. There are some like that and those type may weigh you down.

You can find a hip scarf for about $17. or so.

If you have thighs that rub, like I do : ) then go with yoga pants.

Please keep us informed of how things are going for you.

Blessings,

For trying to learn good form, I found that it was better to be able to see my hip bones (well, honestly, I'm not thin enough to see the hip bones, but let's pretend) Yoga pants sound like a good idea, I might try that. For the fun of costuming - whatever you like best and can afford.

I miss having beginning Belly Dance classes at the park down the street from my house!

I like to wear yoga pants with a hip scarf for practice at home. I've gotten a few good skirts at the thrift store too. A $5 practice skirt is totally worth it.

I encourage my new students to wear a coin hip scarf...why? Becuase you can 'hear' what your hips are doing!
Hearing the 'affirmation' of the coins jingling is not only fun and good for the soul, but being able to hear that you're making the coins jingle...and in rhythm is key!
Go ahead and add a coin scarf to your wardrobe!
