Hips Don't Lie

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.


  1. How fun!!! Did you get a shimmy skirt yet!!? I used this little scarf type thing and I wore on my hips! It was so fun to wear while we were dancing!!

  2. That sounds like a blast! It's always good to mix up your exercise like that, keep it fun. :)

  3. I would love to learn that. Sounds like fun.

  4. Belly dancing looks like so much fun - maybe when my hips are actually visable I will giv it a whirl :)

  5. How great you're doing this. I've always wanted to try, lol. Maybe some day.

  6. keep me posted on the shopping! my line of credit is feeling the pinch as well!
