I take a beginner, intermediate, AND an advanced belly dance class (as well as pilates reformer) every week. At last night's class, there was a photographer there from the Chicago Tribune. She was there to take pictures for an interview the Tribune did with my teacher Raksanna for an article on belly dance.
I think everyone was at their best and really working hard. I know I was. Since lost 69 lbs (as of this morning), I find that I'm lighter on my feel. But, to get a good performance I need to work harder to channel MORE energy. So, I've been taking a level 1 beginners class and putting as much effort into that as possible. And, I think I'm seeing (and FEELING) results. I haven't felt this way since I was, well, a beginner.
