Belly dancing

Hi y'all,
I'm not sure where this one should go,but read that it's good for your health as well as spirit. Has anyone out there tried belly dancing? i am seriously thinking of finding out if there's a class in my area and was just after some input. Does anyone do any other wacky/unusual hobbies/pastime activities?
Much warmth all

I have some bellydancing videos, they are by some beautiful twin sisters, who dance at all the Hollywood parties. They are fun, pretty good exercise, and my husband loves to watch!! I think a class would probably be better. Enjoy, it is really fun!

I have not tried belly dancing, but used to know someone who did, and she said what fun it was and now fit she became as a result of it. As for weird and wacky hobbies, well according to some poeple I know the fact that I am on the spirutual path, and regularly go to islands in the middle of nowhere all on my own to 'get away from it all' (which in truth is them!) makes me weird and wacky in itself. Personally though i think they are far weirder than I am..
That however is an altogether different post.....

Answers:

Hello, thank you all for your kind words and offers of support and incouragement.
June, i love your reason for being weird and would love to be weird like that.
Tigeress, i really want to go for it, but am a litle nervous as i'm a size 20 and would feel uncomfortable with lots of slender women.
Andi, i love your poem so meaningful and true.
Thank you all
Will keep you posted

Answers:

Yes I've done some belly dancing and I really enjoy it.
Originally it was a fertility dance by women for women to help them get in touch with their femininity and sexuality. Also great way to keep the hips supple!
And it is a dance for all shapes and sizes pamperyou
...in fact large hipped, round bellied women look look really fantastic when they do this dance.

Hi, I've tried belly dancing and it was great fun! I really enjoyed it, and keep meaning to go back. Everyone's posts have reminded me just how enjoyable it was, especially when you get to wear the coin belts (sorry, can't remember the proper word for them) and then you can shimer around and jingle to your hearts content. And I agree with Astra, it's definitely for all ages, shapes and sizes!
Love and light, annie x

Hiya,
Although I don’t go to a belly dancing class, I have, kind of, taught myself (not sure if do it right) but, I love any dancing anyway and learned from watching the T.V when I was younger. And then Shakira hit our screens, I would copy (or try to) her moves and I love it, even if I don’t look that good doing it, I feel good! And dancing is a very good form of exercise, but a plus is, I have learnt that belly dancing is very good for the back!!! I am 44 and have no back problems, so I guess there is something in it. I never knew there would be class’s for this, so I might see if there is one near me ;)
Love n hugs

Dear Emp
But of course!!
It won't stimulate your ovaries though :D but it's great for stirring up the ol' Sacral energies.
Just tie a large silk scarf around your hips and shimmy away!!
much love

Answers:

to be honest i think it was made so men could be a bit pervy, which is great, because i love to see it!!!

Answers:

getting invoved in the dance rather than watching it is much more sensual, imo.;)
