There are a few links on the net that have really hit me hard where bellydance and being a big girl are concerned. I’ve been meaning to share them with you for a bit, but the other day I found another great article on the topic, and that has inspired me to get off my big, fluffy duff, dig out the other ones, and share them with you here, now. :)
"Too Fat to Dance..?" (The new article I just found.)
And an article where comedian Margaret Cho speaks on the power of bellydance.

Plus, there are a few other really wonderful fluff-positive places to visit online; such as Ragen Chastain’s blog, “Dances With Fat,” as well as a plus-size-positive bellydance group on Yahoo, called “Big Beautiful Bellydancers.” :)
And for those who’d like a bit more info, you can find other links about plus-sized bellydance (as well as bellydance for other types of folks) at my old student project page: http://www.radford.edu/rmaynard/bellydanceforeverybody/links.html. There’s info, pics & other such stuff (all hopefully inspiring) about fluffy bellydancing, men’s bellydance, bellydance for folks with disabilities, plus shopping links & more. :) Mind you, it’s just a student-designed site so there’s no operational Flash or anything, but the links, videos and photos there all still work. :) Hope you like it, and that it proves useful to you. :)
