Final Project Proposal

October 3, 2012

For my final project I’d like to build a web site that has resource for beginning belly dance students. This site would be specifically targeted to the Bay Area, and would contain information on local teachers, upcoming workshops, local costuming resources, and costuming and makeup tips. I’d also want a section on local festivals, performance venues for students, music, including lyric translation resources, basic drum rhythms and dance styles. I would use both my own experiences as a student to inform the content, and seek feedback from my own dance classmates and instructors to build and improve on it.

My audience would be female, beginning to intermediate level students, as well as women who haven’t yet taken classes, but are interested.

Culturally, women considering belly dance may be concerned about what friends and family might think of them since belly dance is frequently confused with stripping or burlesque in the United States. These woman might be concerned with their body image, or age. I would want to highlight how healthy belly dance is overall, as exercise, as an expression of art and self, and how it promotes a healthy body image for women of all sizes.

    Great topic. I took a class and had so much fun. Too bad you aren’t on the Central Coast. Best of luck on the project.
