    New to forum

    Hi all. I've been reading for a while before signing up. I started belly dancing in January, 2006 when menopausal changes started putting weight on me. I rented a dvd, did it one time and had muscle spasams in my neck for 2 days. I thought that maybe I should take a class. Wow, what a difference. Live classes are the way to go. I still use dvd's between classes, safely now that I know how to do it right.

    I did a performance for my husband on our anniversery. I think that he was expecting a comedy act, 5 seconds into my performance the smirk was off his face and he was looking impressed and amazed. I'm working on the New Years Eve performance now. It will have 2 beginner choreographies and 1intermediate. I'm finding the intermediate choreography to be challenging and fun. My husband now encourages me to practice and he is requesting a halloween performance. I'll do a repeat of the 3 beginner choreographies from our anniversery performance with different costumes.

    My first public performance is scheduled for january. A class performance. I'm excited. I can't wait. Oh, and I've lost 10 lbs and I have a crease in my tummy when I do umi's

    I started dancing for the excersize and kept with it because I discovered that I love the dance

    This forum has been helpful in a lot of ways. I'm learning about the different styles and costuming that goes with each style. The music descusions alone will take me years to read.

    I thank all of you for posting such helpful information.
