Phase II progress and site updates

by Cassandra on 09/22/11

Well everyone, Phase II of the sites restructuring and updates are at about 30% meaning most of the movements pages are done.  The majority of the left over pages are the specialty pages on using props.  Some of those pages will not take much time to convert because they do not all have or require the video demonstrations meaning they can be quickly converted to the new look.  Most of the broken links should be fixed  in this section now but if your having trouble from a page in the old site style make sure you are using the side navigation buttons instead of text links.  I also wanted to make sure everyone knows that although the directories are still working they 1. are not currently linked to the main page and 2. No new submissions will be added until I start updating that section.  So if you've submitted a form to be entered in the directory or if you have requested changes please be aware that it will be a longer wait than listed to get those changes made.  The updating of the site is my first priority right now.  Also, if there is anything that the site does not have that you would really like to see on it now's the time to make such suggestions since I'm moving things around and adding in new things.  I'd love to hear from the sites users what they really want to see here.

Ahalan Wa Sahalan!  Welcome to Middle Eastern Dance.  This site is an informational resource on Middle Eastern Dance.  Although the main focus is on what is commonly called "Belly Dance" there is information on other dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Mediterranean, Balkans, and the Indian Sub-continent.  My goal is to give people (dancers especially) easy access to understanding the dances and cultures from which they come.  With somewhere around 400 pages and growing this site is full of information to keep you busy.  Take some time to look around, you won't regret it.  I've tried to organize information into logical hierarchies so please explore.  Use the navigation menu at the top of the screen to check out the different pages.  There are hundreds of pages of how-to's many of which now feature video and other visual or audio aids.  Learn about history, music, styles and more.  If your a dancer looking to advertise your services for hire check out the Dancer's Directory, just fill out this form for a listing. You can also advertise you classes if you are an instructor in our classes directory by filling out the following form.  If you own a Middle Eastern or Mediterranean Restaurant or Deli and would like to list your Restaurant in our Restaurant section please fill out the following form.  Visit the chat room and talk with fellow dancers.  If you have a minute please take some time to vote in the polls.  Be sure to check back regularly to see what's new!
