Beta Testers Needed!

by Cassandra on 09/27/11

There's a lot of new changes going on here at Middle Eastern Dance and it's not just the look and organization of the site.  New and improved content is being added in as the site is updated page by page.  The styles of dance section was one such addition but there's more!  Another really cool addition to the site will be on-line classes.  These classes will be like continuing education for bellydancers.  The first course being introduced will be History of Middle Eastern dance 101: Ancient Origins.  Before the course opens to the public it needs to run through a series of beta testing.  Beta Testers will get an opportunity to take the course for free in exchange for offering feedback and reporting issues with course managments software and materials.  If your interested you can apply through the educational section of this site or send me an e-mail if it's not working yet.  The beta testing will begin in January 2012 but I need to get testers lined up and added to the roster before we can begin.  I'm looking for a variety of people but this does require a commitment and requires actually taking the class and doing the work in it as well so only apply if you can commit to it and actually want to take an opportunity to learn.

Hello! Grats on your site and good job updating it :D I would love to be a beta tester, I have plenty of free time that I spend on the internet, but I live in Spain. Time difference might be an issue though, but if it isn't, you can count on me :)

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!
