I am a Yip Podcast junkie now!
After my first ever belly dance class, I wanted to find some music for practicing. I came across Yip and downloaded it. It has opened the world of American belly dance to me and I have learned so much already. I especially appreciate that they ask their interviewees about costuming disasters because I had my first performance after 8 weeks and had to pick my own costume. I avoided some tangles and indecent exposures because I had heard them on Yip. The hostesses are funny and have pretty voices. Thank you Yip!
YIP is addictive!
Listen to a couple of episodes and you'll be hooked! I'm not a Tribal style dancer so I didn't think I'd find much of interest. I was wrong - this podcast is as informative as it is entertaining.
This is a great podcast!
Fun, smart and engaging I am really impressed with this podcast! I can't wait for the next episode. Not really into tribal bellydance, but I feel they cover a wide range of interesting bellydance topics. Loved the John Compton interview! Keep up the great work you guys are amazing!
