Alright! I can move those hips, baby!! I know, I know, I’ve been talking about taking a Belly Dancing class for a LONG TIME and I finally signed up! Tonight was my first class and WOW! Of course I didn’t know what to think at first but overall it was pretty cool. I’m going to learn a ton and the teacher says the whole class caught on quick so that’s a good beginning! I was a little unsure of the whole hip movement thing, I have to tell you. I mean, I can dance like a disco queen but it isn’t the same as swaying hips or doing the snake with my arms or jiggling my shoulders and chest moves? Yeah, somehow it will all come together.
The coolest thing was probably the music. A lot of it made me feel like I was back in Egypt again. That’s probably when the Belly Dancing burr was put under my saddle (HA no, I am no Cowgirl!), although it wasn’t until a co-worker at the Provo Juvenile Court did a dance for us that I realized I wanted to learn how (circa 1995)… and here I am 10 years later. Tender and total Coolness! I’m doing it!
