I want to learn more about belly dancing. I've been practicing, but I'm wondering if guys see it as a weird thing. Also, would I have the body to belly dance? You can see more pics of me from previous questions.

It's so much fun, and it makes you feel beautiful and seductive. I did online lessons then I took a class in college and am taking another this fall that involves finger cymbals :)
It's definitely a myth that you have to be skinny to belly dance. Belly dance is a dance, and just like all dances it's about expression, not body.
However, because belly dance moves areas in ways to accentuate a woman's body, it makes me feel powerful and beautiful. And it boosts my confidence.
My boyfriend thinks it's nice. But I don't dance for him often. Right now I'm building my technique and knowledge of the dance so I can bust into a shimmy and aswan and all the other moves my teacher told me the name of but I forgot haha. Anyways, to me belly dance isn't about being sexual, it's about feeling beautiful and in control of my body.
Best of luck on your belly dance journey :)1
