Most Common Belly Dance Questions


Q. How do you spell b-e-l-l-y-d-a-n-c-e?

A. There are a number of ways to spell the word

In creating this web site, I have learned that belly dance is spelled in more than one way. To satisfy the search engines and to include as many keywords as possible, I have included every spelling I could image — belly dance, bellydance, belly dancing, bellydancing, belly dancer, bellydancer. When interpreting and translating words of other languages, we do allow for different spellings, especially when those languages have a completely different alphabet. In honor of the roots of this dance, I use the different spellings freely.

This has been both a challenging and pleasurable experience as I play detective and attempt to decipher the world of web site search engines.
