Last night was my first belly dancing class.
Certainly not the first time my belly has danced (if you count jiggling as dance, which I believe you should), but the first time I've tried to use my muscles instead of my fat to make that happen.
I give it a thumbs up. We didn't do much besides learn steps and hand movements, but I had fun and I'm looking forward to next week where we try some group formations. It is American Tribal Style, so it's very much about improvisational group work as opposed to Shakira-like gyrating.
Not that I'm knocking Shakira. Girl can gyrate like woah.
