Is there anywhere to take Belly Dancing Classes in Austin Texas?

There are many places to take belly dancing classes in Austin. I will give you a few suggestions:

Bahaia (North Austin) - - She is the former organizer of the Austin Belly Dance Convention, and one of the best teachers in Austin. I have not taken lessons from her, but I have seen her students dance, and I have seen her dance, and she is hands down the best as far as I can tell. She also does her Hot Seminars and other events. She teaches traditional Raks Sharqi and Cabaret.

Stacey Lizette (South Austin) - - The current organizer of the Austin Belly Dance Convention, and another of the most widely known teachers in the Austin area. She teaches according to Suhaila Salimpour

What are the opportunities with a major in dance?

I am looking at getting a major in dance for college, but what can I do with that? what kind of career would be ahead of me with that major? anything besides a dance teacher?
I highly suggest going on some college visits. Meet with admissions. take a tour of the campus. And meet with the head of the dance department. Watch a dance class.

You will have to audition for the dance department at college in order to major or minor in dance.
A BFA is for performance. Usually that would be contemporary dance as most colleges and conservatories have that as their focus. You would also learn choreography and may wish to pursue that. A career as a dance teacher would be a BA most likely with education elements. You could also branch out into dance arts management, dance critic, dance P.T., even a presenter of dance. There are a number of related fields.

Yes if you watch carefully the spinner wobbled which means in my book that it was reality. Take it as you may I think that he was either in reality or he was still in the limbo of his mind. I lean more so to non dream ;)

What an unusual question! And a thought-provoking one, too. I would not be surprised if your quest did not turn up some unpublished work that people would consider selling...maybe for a little more than $1, though...What would you think of trying on Ebay? Goodness knows they have everything imaginable for sale there...maybe you could post willingness to buy unsold work just to see what is offered. Good luck with this intriging quest.
No one would sell their hard work for $1.

What kind of camera do I need to take digital pictures underwater?

Well it depends on how much underwater photography you want to do, and also how deep you plan to go. There are cases for your good DSLR that allow you to take them underwater, however they are very expensive, often same or more as a new camera.

I know a lot of people that will take a simple Point and Shoot camera, like Canon powershot 570 or 720 and then put it in a good clear plastic baggy and then secure the baggy so there is as little space between the baggy and the lens so the images come out best. Note, that you will need to set it to like ISO 800 before you go in the water, and that it all will have a blue cast to it, but that can be corrected for in Photoshop.

If you watch Ebay you will see cases for the Canon 20D and 30D sometimes and even a few Rebel xt cases and last week I saw one for a 5D but the case was well over $1200 used.

I would suggest seeing what you like and try the point and shoot first. should work to about 20-30 ft my buddy says w/o any problems.

Hope this helps. Good Luck and remember, dont swim for 2 hrs after eating...!!!.
Many manufacturers make cameras that work underwater, but at most camera shops, you should be able to find a waterproof housing that may work with your existing camera. You do have to be careful that you do not go under deeper than the rated depth of the camera or housing. Some of those housings are not much more than shields to prevent damage from being splashed, and wont work beyond a few feet under.

Tell me what you think of my poem, give me your honest opinions don

Life is at a stand still at this very moment,

thee trees are whispering to thee world,

thee wind blows a song for our souls while thee leaves softly dance to it.

Thee silence takes over,

such a beautiful sound it is as I watch thee sun descend before my eyes just as thee moon will soon arise.

On my back I lay witnessing thee change of day, experiencing thee beauty this world has left to give.

Thee interest in her beauty we lack, so I analyze her extravagant underestimated beauty,

carefully watching our skies go from blue to black....

Where did all the flat footed folk come from and is it true they can

I am so lucky not to have flat feet but they are very common almost all the shoes in the shops are designed for flat feet which makes it difficult to get shoes that fit appropriately.

I have dancers feet with a very high instep what makes of shoes are good for my feet?
Flat feet aside, there are certain places in Blighty that produce specimens with webbed feet (I know of one at Blackhorse Fen) if you have flippers for feet, flat feet would be a blessing. Having a high instep I recommend thigh length black shiny kinky boots, gulp....gasp...a basque er.... gulp and er...stockings.. er...excuse me I am going for a cold shower...gasp...

Who was the last prisoner to be kept in the Tower of London?

Yes, Rudolph Hess was the last political prisoner, he stayed in the Tower for 4 days in 1941.

In 1952, however, the Kray twins were held in the Tower for 4 days for failing to report for national service, making them amongst the last prisoners of the Tower of London.
I think it was Rudolph Hess, for a brief period.

i saw my neighbours son one night spraying a wall in london, this art , graffitti mural, i later saw in a book about banksy. The next day i asked him why he was spraying the walls, and did you know it was an offence, and that i took photografic evidence. His reply was if you tell my mum or the police he would graffity a penis and testicles on the front of my house, should i call the police??
No. But I would ask him for a couple of free originals.
Yes call the police, Not olny is it criminal damage, its also threatening a witness.
there are many many many fake banksys around these days, odds are the mural you saw wasnt banksy and i believe he lives in brighton not london.

i have been told banksy is very careful about the law finding him and i very much doubt he would threaten to draw obscene things on your house, not his style

you probably saw some kid pretending to be him, if you want to you can call crimestoppers which is anon so he wont know who told on him.

Would you judge a book that mentions knights and princesses?

It just makes me curious. I know the book should stand on its own, but if you saw a young adult/adult book with words such as princess and knights, would that turn you off?

What type of things would it depend on?

Thanks very much!
Uh... Yeah. I think it would.

It sounds so superficial, but I think the whole fantasy knights and princess thing is way too overdone.

I think a modern take on knights and princesses would be interesting. Although even that is cliche itself.

It would depend on the plot

What is the best way to take a picture of your self?

i cant get a good 1 :(
Well, there are several ways you can take a picture of yourself, but it mainly takes practice. You could try mirror shots, where you point the camera at the mirror and get yourself in the picture as well. Or, you could simply point the camera at yourself by holding it out away from you. You can get a lot of good pictures that way too, especially if you experiment with different angles. Just, like I said, takes practice. Good luck!
Stand in the bathroom facing the mirror. Photograph your image in the mirror.
