dance today

wow this mornings dance was just a short one,but wow,I enjoyed it so very much!:) I am putting myself a routine to do each morning you see.
I seem to be into very slow moving at the moment.taking each move,embracing it and enjoying it.


Miss Shimmy, now that you mention Souad Massi, I had a class with someone a while ago who had a Souad Massi cd for warmup. I'll try and find the song
Souad is so beautiful to dance to I think,I danced to on ly her music this morning,its so lifting and beautiful.


how was your dance?did you dance today?

Do you ever get a move going on and you cant stop as you are enjoying it so much?

hugs and smiles

I did dance today, for a couple of hours rehearsing for a performance with my troupe. Afterwards I worked on my new choreography for a while.
I think I will also put some time into the new choreo this evening since my teacher gave me lots of new stuff and advice to think about.
I've also chosen music for a choreo with zills today, a very cool song by Egyptian singer Gawaher. Might just try and improvise to it to get a feel for it, and practise some zills while dancing.

I seem to get a move on whenever I hear Arabic/ME music, I just HAVE TO MOVE. I alsways get a big dance-kick after class too, I go home (1,5 hours on train and busses, listening to arabic mp3), throw in a cd or 2 and dance away till I drop lol.

By the way, that reminds me: I was talking about this with my sister the other day who is also learning bellydance: Do you ever feel that when you have danced only MED for a long time, and you go somewhere and get on the dancefloor, MED moves are the only ones that come to mind?

Or is that just me obsessing...:D

Yesterday I danced with my new costume! It was so exciting it is much more enjoyable dancing in a more 'authentic' dress. now I can finally say goodbye to my £5 bright blue dress and crop top and say hello to my new matching red harem pands and sexy top! (with the flowing sleeves I wanted :p )

Got another class tommorow.

Hi all,

Yes indeed, I danced a bit on Friday. Gosh, am I out of shape :( I haven't been dancing for like 2 months and it shows :rolleyes: Better get back on track very soon...

I really want to take a picture of it as I am so proud of my outfit :$ But then I hate having my picture taken :rolleyes:

Will post it eventually anyways :$


I can't wait until tonights class, because of my new outfit, also because I want to see if I have actually progressed with my camel ^_^

:D :D

I sure have been dancing a lot, and I can feel it lol: haven't danced today since my muscles are still a bit sore, but I think I will try for at least half an hour tonight.
Tomorrow I'll dance again for a longer while. I really have to get that choreo to come out perfect:p

Dear Louise I think you will look wonderful, and if you feel it too you'll have a great dance!

Mariyam, please post a picture when you take it!:)

Like Mihrimah Ghaziya, I make up hundreds of routines when I can't dance - on the train or at my desk - wherever I have music.

I danced last night, and got vehemently accused by a classmate of practicing the routine outside of class *shock, horror!* :D

But did I dance today? Not yet. I plan on making the most of my evening alone tonight by dancing. I have to practice in my costume, after all......

hi all

good morning all,well last night I had a beautiful dance,I was very late as yesterday was a very busy day.
My muscles seem to have come through their tenderness,and the strength realy shows.
It was a beautiful dance ,I realy enjoyed it,in the back of my mind I was wondering how it would be when I have my black tassle skirt on top of my harem pants,bet it will feel amazing!
isnt it great dressing up to dance,even for just ourselves?:)

I have lived on the lip
of insanity, wanting to know reasons,
knocking on a door. It opens.
I've been knocking from the inside!...

Dance, when you're broken open,
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you're perfectly free.

I must admit I didn't dance yesterday and not yet today. I had plans to go dancing yesterday (not bellydance but going out with some people) however they went to a swimming pool party and I don't like that, so I visited another friend, watched tv and ate popcorn.

Miss Shimmy, where does that orange smiley come from?
 

miss_shimmy

hello moon

oh moon you going to need to dance soon,you will have all that energy stored up!!

the orange smiley was brought in from a collection I have,if you right click and save,I think you can take him home with you:)

ok,well heres the bottom half of my costume,the harem pants were a gift to myself first mnth of losing weight,and for my second month i awarded myself a fringed skirt!! :D





next month will be my top or bra,i might make one myself,being so well blessed in the boob area..LOL

Thank you very much for the offer, miss Shimmy. However I don't have a digital camera or a scanner :( So I'm unable to take any pictures of myself. I only have some pictures online from my first performance (I posted them in the old forum). However the clothes I was wearing there were not my own, except for the hip scarve.

The clothes I always wear for practice are either a dark red or a green skirt, my black hipscarf (I only have 1 at the moment, but it's very special, my sister gave it to me for my birthday :)) and a "normal" top I also wear in real life when the weather is nice.
I'd like to have "real" bellydance clothes in the future, but for now I still find the costumes too expensive (and I can't even order stuff from the internet. Don't have a credit card) and I don't know how to sew.
Hm, I really should take some sewing lessons in the future ;)

hey moonaw

,do you have a friend who could take some of you?if I could,I would get on the next plane,stop by and have a dance with you,take piks and have a realy great time indeed!

My piks are taken with a camera I found on some waste ground would you believe!my hubby had to open it up and fix it,I am so grateful of it.

I would love to see the pictures you posted on the first forum:)

Its funny,with the red and black,its a color I was into years ago,looks like the dancer inside of me still realy loves it,can't realy see myself in anything else!

next dance will be tonight,how about you?

hugs and smiles
