Belly Dance Journal Reviews
Is it worth it? Why,Yes of course! I am in agreeance with the other reviewers this is a wonderful little journal to have. I wish I had, the information about etiquette when I first started performing.There are a lot of useful tips about improvisation, rhythms,technique and stage presence.I gave it four stars because there are only 52 pages to write about practicing and it is based weekly but I would have preferred it to be daily. $14.00 is kind of pricey for a weekly journal.You don't have any space to see what you are doing day to day. There are also 52 weekly class pages .I also gave it four stars because as a paper back to much bending will cause damage to the the pages, so extra care may need to be taken. All in all the books has 12 guided practices, 52 weekly practice pages,52 weekly class pages,6 pages for workshops, and 15 quick reference sheets. Lauren even provides space for you to draw movements and arm positions. In the practice and weekly class pages there is a before and after section, asking you things like what is your focus, how much time are you gonna spend, and after includes things like how much did you challenge yourself, how you felt and intentions for next week.
Love it! Plenty of pages for practice and classes. I take classes 5 days a week so I'm not sure it will last me all year, but it will last much of it at least. Definitely a useful tool. I'm an intermediate dancer (been dancing for two years) and I can see already that this will help me structure my practicing and get more done.
This book makes me want to renew my belly dance practice. After a debilitating leg injury, I had severely curtailed my dancing. This journal inspires me to get back to dancing.
Being relatively new to bellydance I was looking for a way to keep track of what I am learning and a way to set goals for what I want to learn. This book gave me the help I needed to do so. There are helpful hints and guidelines for going to classes, workshops and for your own private practices. I am already putting much of the information in this book to use in my own practices and know that once I am able to go to a workshop this book will make the trip with me.
This journal help me to stay focus on my practice time and movements, along with paying attention to my emotions as a way to understand which movements I have accomplish and which ones I have to practice more. Great Book and I would highly recommend it.
Great organization and inspiration all through the inside. The only, only drawback I can think of is that it would be much better in hardcover, or better yet spiral bound. It's hard to write in as a paperback.
I would recommend this book to all belly dancers. Plenty of room for comments and easy questions for recitals, public dancing, hoflas, etc.
It is great to have a planner written by someone who knows what dancers need. The suggestions are motivating, and I like that it has a section for your notes on just about everything in your dance life.
