New here from Illinois!
I have been lurking here for the past couple weeks and just had my first class Wednesday and thought it was time to join up. I decided to take classes mainly for the fitness aspects of it, but it sure is a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Plus the time away from the kids and the husband to do something for myself is really nice. I just hope some day this clumsy overweight woman can become as beautiful a belly dancer as I have seen on here. Thank you all for the inspiration and hope to get to know more of you.
