v Mediterranean-dance (including Belly Dancing) mailing list

This is a public unmoderated electronic mailing list for discussion of ANY aspect of the various Mediterranean dance types. That would include any of the folkloric dances from countries that, for the most part have a coast on the Mediterranean Sea. With that in mind, this list would be a place to discuss flamenco and Spanish dance, belly dance and the various Middle Eastern folkloric dances, as well Greek dancing. If you're not sure this list covers your dance type, please feel free to email the list.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to, teachers, performances, music, videos, books, history, the future of the various dance forms, major people, cloths/shoes, technique, etc.

Anyone can join the list by sending e-mail to with a "subscribe med-dance" command (without the quotes) in the body of the message.

There is currently no FAQ (list of Frequently Asked Questions) for this list, but I'd really like to see (at least) one happen. If you have a possible contribution, please share it with the list! If you're interested in organizing creation of a FAQ, please contact me at .

This list will be archived /ftp/nonprofits/dance/med-dance as well as the books, videos, and music directories directly under the dance directory where appropriate.
