Hi I just joined Sparkling Belly Dancers, saw your great idea for using water bottles for weight to do the shimmy challenge, and thought I'd stop by and say Hey! I've also been on the BBQ Team since I started SP the last week of June 2007. I just love that team.

Congrats on being a newlywed and starting this journey. Hopefully we can stay in touch. Since I just joined SBD I guess I'll only be doing shimmies for 2 days, lol but it's a start! I don't know if I'll use your water bottle idea, I have to find a rope to fit around me and hold the bottles secure. But it's a great idea!!!

Take care!

Welcome to Spark and to the bellydance teams! I am in Jackson and take classes from Kristina Kelly of MissiHippy. :-) If you are ever in Jackson on a Thursday evening or Sunday afternoon, check out Butterfly Yoga. Oh, yeah, and the troupe performs at Aladdin's on the first Friday of every month.
