Hi miss Shimmy, I heard tribal dancers have some kind of "traffic rules", which every member of the troup knows. When the current "leader" gives a signal for a certain move, the whole troup will do that move, synchronised.

I feel that way too! I've bought so many DVDs I REALLY have to stop. (I've even missed my favorite program on TV two weeks in a row because I was watching one of them) The good thing about not being with my boyfriend though is I certainly have a lot more time to practice and I'm taking advantage of it!

Some of the DVDs I've got I'm not necessarily trying to do all the stuff I just like to watch! Can't remember exact titles on all of them...

I've got
Instructional Bellydance with Jillina level 1
Ansuya Lavish Layers
Rachel Brice Tribal Fusion...
Mesmera's Zills
The Heartbeat of Bellydance (Drum Solo)
21 shimmies 1001 variations
one of the bellytwins mystic dance? with the veil
Smooth as Silk w Katia
Aziza Veil
Delilah Workshop I, II, and III (I had to see her flip the coin w her stomach)
Spins and Turns w Marguerite
I've orderded Suhalia Fitness Fusion Buns
I've ordered Jillina Level II (didn't necessarily love the first one but the price is reasonable)

I've been trying to decide what to order next, one reason why I started a thread to see what everyone is wanting (we'll see if I get any responses) but I was kind of thinking about Ava Flemmings Sizzlin' Hips...I'm trying to make myself wait until at least next payday but it's HARD!

oh yeah and Rockin' the Casbah is my only performance DVD...

well I've worked a little with the 21 shimmies just doing the hip shimmy and egyptian shimmy...

doing the aziza veil some since we're working on veil in class... (I just got the Smooth as Silk yesterday)

Had planned on using the spins and turns today but my head is hurting a bit and I don't think spinning would help...:confused:

Did some of Jillina and Ansuya a week or so ago, the basic stuff, don't want to neglect it.

Not really doing full video on any of them, just the parts I want to practice.

You're doing so well Miss Shimmy, you've really been inspiring. I'm pretty happy with my dance practice lately but it is still never enough! My eating and exercise aside from dance has not been good. All the bad emotions I was having caused me to use food as comfort and a lot of it too. I still have sad moments but overall I'm feeling better than I was but once I start eating bad I find it SOOO hard to get back on track. I'm on spring break this week. With the extra time this would have been the perfect week to start the gym back...whoa...I just realized it was last March when I last went to the gym on a regular basis...:naghty: I had actually planned to go Monday but my mother gave me a good (bad) excuse not to. The rest of the week I didn't even try. My weight (and body fat) is back up to the number I do like to go over. But I will get myself together...don't know what day it will be, but I will.

Yes when you were gone and Venefica gone this thread got real quiet! And all the forum is still pretty quiet without V.

hi there stacy,

you know I think you are doing so very well.
I know what you mean about dancing,never doin g enough,its all i want to do,and I am doing it 5 days a week,2 days off to do my work,I work from home you see ,so I can set my schedule.
this morning I did some dance drills, later on I will do rach's dvd,I am spring cleaning the house ,I want to be more organised and fit even more dance into my day;)

when I am cleaning I watch my belly dance shows,so very inspiring.

sorry to hear about your eating going a bit off,you will get there stacy,the only thing I have found that works is the food combining.
I ate loads for lunch,but it was all good food,made up mostly of salad and veggies...mmmmmmmmmm.

I am just looking up something a little different to have tonight..

what you need to do stacy is find something that works for you and once you find it,stay right with it:)

I know what you mean,theres a big emptyness where V should be,I pray she is alright.
''we love you V,hope you are back soon ''.

so whats on your dance agenda today?

love always

Oh yes! She's a very active poster, but I guess she's still at her mom's. I hope she's doing well. (As far as I could see from the weather news, the weather in Norway isn't extremely bad).

I bought a simple red scarf with little beads yesterday. Dance lesson in a few hours time :dance:

Yeah that's been the major problem...I've been trying to figure it out at least since high school and while I have been able to lose weight ( & gain muscle) I always get sucked back into my bad habbits again and gain it back.:( But I don't feel it is all been for nothing because I stongly feel if I didn't even try who knows what kind of shape I'd be in now? Instead of gaining back weight I'd just be adding additional pounds.

For dance today more of the same, trying to stay on count with the music for the veil routine we're learning, I really don't know where I'm getting so off...a much needed class is tomorrow!:D What about you?

I know what you mean there.but you will get there,just give yourself time,if you mess up,dont worry,just carry on where you left off.
today I had a cookie and a slice of carrot cake,but thats ok as when its dinner i will make something even extra healthy.
I just came back from shopping got lots of different salad to try..mmmm

well I did callanetics this morning,did some hip drills at the bus stop.
not sure whether to wrok with carolena or rachel this evening,but my thought today is that I wiull do an instructional and then finish with improv.this is last dance day,I have the weekend off you see.
I am enjoying the posture that carolena teaches,in fact today my belly was able to do a couple of belly rolls,i dont know how they looked as i was out shopping,but they realy felt great!!
so I am wondering abuot fully getting this one dvd before starting on another.
I watched belly dance superstars this morning,I never get borred of watching dancers.

how was your class moon?

hugs
