Belly Dancing

9 Sep

…is really hard. Seriously. Hard. Remember that old song about the knee bone being connected to the leg bone, etc? In belly dancing, you have to disregard all that and make parts of your body shake and jiggle independently. Once you’ve got the hang of that, you start learning moves that one only sees in hip-hop videos. Nonetheless, it’s really fun. And we’re supposed to wear jingly scarves on our hips while we shake it. The jingly scarves make it all worthwhile.

    You’re so impatient Melissa! If you only wait, your body will jiggle and shake INDEPENDENTLY and you won’t even have to take a class or pay for it! It’s called old age!
