    Default Getting mezmerized...

    My "official" study consists of a 20 minute lesson 7 days a week, practice throughout the day, and a "sit down" lesson each day with no time limit one way or the other, where I just watch professional and advanced dancers, research, read, learn..

    The thing is:

    -on some days it's a 20 minute lesson, scattered practices throughout the day between work and other tasks, and an hour of study. But other days, when I have no work to do, I get mezmerized by belly dance. I practice every chance I get. I do a double lesson. And the studying is the rest of the day. Today was one of those days. I got up late, and I have some pet sitting chores I have to do first, and I had to clean up a little...but the rest of the day was belly dance...belly dance...and more belly dance..and I'm not finished yet. I found a bunch of clips of very broken down moves...and I want to watch a couple more performances.

    Thumbs up

    Very soon, you will find yourself shimmying in the shower, doing chest lifts while driving, doing traveling steps from room to room, etc. I tell ya, this dance is addicting! My best to you, LadyLoba! ^^

    It's certainly an easy subject to obsess upon!

    Any day that goes by where you DON'T watch dance or dance yourself is a wasted day. That's my philosophy

    Been there with the rest of you. I still shimmy on the train platform, do chest circles at the copy machine, sometimes I do camels as I'm headed towards the kitchen!

    Yep, I'm in agreement with all that. In addition to shimmying in the shower et al, I'd like to add my personal favorite: undulating in the elevator.

    I can't do undulations yet! That's one of my "need to try that again" moves...but I can't wait to try "undulations on the elevator!"

    I was doing pelvic lifts while I got dressed this morning though....and I shimmy while I brush my teeth a lot. My "work breaks" tend to consist of practice too..
