Have you ever tried a belly dancing class or would like to ?
I went to one Monday night in kununurra & quite enjoyed it ! Wondered how many others had tried it ?!
Oh please don't ask! lol seriously, I made a complete idiot of myself! that's not all that surprising, but even I didn't think I could be that bad! After trying out a couple of video's online, I thought, yes I can do this! so of I went, knowing that I, the great dancing Nell can do anything. I went to one class. Never again. If you have ever seen an elephant mate with a hippo, that was me! for some reason all sense of rhythm went out of the window, I ended up with backache, a bruised knee, and my hips felt as though they had been put in a washing machine! So no, I don't think I will be going back, at least until I have learned to limber up a bit! lol glad you liked it though! lol
I haven't, but I want too. A good friend of mine has been going to classes for a while and she absolutely loves it. Not to mention, she's lost a lot of weight from the exercise too. I hope to go soon to check it out.
I've been doing belly dance for about a year, off and on. I love it! I love its histories, its movements, its cultures, its music. I also think it's great how it's evolving and how there are many different styles now. I am only experienced in the traditional cabaret types, but I am going to start American Tribal soon. It can be very hard starting belly dance, especially if you are not flexible, very coordinated, or have no dancing background but if you don't get discouraged you can definitely become a great belly dancer. I've never come across a beginners belly dance class where people were just fantastic right away. We all have different starting points, and good instructors always understand that, so fear no judgement!
I am fortunately very flexible and have some dance background (ballet) so a lot of movements came easily to me, but I was terrible at being coordinated. Combinations and choreography made me feel embarrassed because of how uncoordinated I was. But with practice I got better and with more practice I'm sure I can achieve my goal of becoming a professional, just like anyone can.
Belly dancing is very liberating as a woman. It's a dance made by women for women. All of the classes I have taken give a very supportive environment, making everyone feel "the goddess within." I have to say though, that the best and most impressive belly dancer I have seen was a man! Very feminine was he, but still a man. He definitely had a goddess within, too
I've been belly dancing for about five years now and love it. I didn't know there was a class in Kununurra - maybe you could tell the teacher to get listed on the Australian bellydance directory http://bellydanceoz.com. It's free.
I've taken belly dancing classes and it was fun. Many Zumba classes will also teach a version of the 'belly dance' moves.
