belly dancing

This month I decided to branch out and try something different, so my friends and I signed up for a belly dancing class. It's a great core workout, but more than that it feels like a small glimpse into another culture. If any Middle Eastern dance classes are being held in your community, I highly recommend taking one. I have had so much fun!

P.S. I love this photo of a young Jane Seymour from the Harryhausen cult flick Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. Maybe I can look like her when my class is done? Happy dancing!

I've heard it's fun. I'm just afraid I'd injure myself throwing all this blubber around! Good luck to you and let us know what the final results are

Great picture! I didn't recognize her at all. I hope you continue to enjoy your class. Going with friends must make it extra fun. :-)

Katie, trust me. I have plenty of jelly to jiggle, but I'm trying not to let that stop me. I think you would love it!

P.S. I am also aware of the irony of posting a half-naked Jane Seymour directly after an entry about modesty. *sigh*

FUN!!! I wish there were classes here. I know it would be a great workout (which I need), it would be fun (which is a bonus when working out) and a certian someone at our house would love it if I learned to shake like that, hehe!
