And, guess what? We get to use finger cymbals! Yup, and veils- next thing you know, I'll be walking around in harem pants- now wouldn't THAT be a sight!
Our instructor is evidently somewhat famous and has, so I've been told, the most frequently visited belly dancing website in the country. Hmm.. Fun.
I downloaded our "performance" song plus some other music so we can practice before next week. It definitely is a good workout. Maybe when we get good I'll have V take a video of us dancing and post it. Or... maybe not.....
Oh, this is awesome! It's supposed to be a fantastic workout. I tried the lessons on a cable channel once and my then 3 year old son was mesmerized by the woman on tv and then yelled at me to sit down, I was in the way... seriously it was like he was in a trance... I would pop that channel on and then I could take a shower, make dinner, etc LOLReplyDelete
Back in high school, I dated a German exchange student who could belly dance. It looks easy but it certainly wasn't and she always practiced a lot.ReplyDelete
Congrats on locating a dance instructor. I studied Cabaret (your instructors style) for several years then moved to tribal fusion (Rachel Brice, Sharon Kirhara style) as I found it easier to connect with that music. I then found mandaradance.com and performed with them for about a year. A fantastic workout!ReplyDelete
Aren't aerobics classes fun? I've been doing them at our gym for about 7 years - fun way to stay in shape!ReplyDelete
