Hello everyone, my name is Jolene and I live in chilly Minnesota. I started belly dance about 2 years ago using the Venna and Neena DVD's for weight loss, and just ended up falling in love with the dance in the process. Since I live in rural MN, it is not easy to find classes or others of like interest close by...so I have been practicing mainly from DVD's Deliah's Worshop, Neena & Veena dance series, and a few odd ones. I love it and I hope someday to form a group or to become a member of a troupe, so I can expirience the dance outside of my basement, lol! I am a plus size dancer (at this point). I love reading, art, spirituality & wine. Currently, I am interested in getting a better grip on transitions, traveling and zills. Anyways, if anyone is ever in the area, please look me up! I would love to hear from fellow belly dancers!
