Belly Dancing

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Okay I am going insane or I am worried someone else might think so LOL. I just signed up for an 8-week belly dancing class. My biggest concern is I will be the BIG girl of the class. I am extremely self-concious of how I look or of people looking at me. I guess this is stepping out on a limb for me. Somehow I have to make it past the first, second, third....sessions and I will be fine. DH thinks this is cool, I am praying for success and some fun.

    I would love to find a belly dancing class....I love Shakira, do you know this singer? classes like this I think that if you give yourself eyecontact in the mirror and you feel the music and you visualize wonderful belly dancers like shakira you are going to find that inner diva. Belly dancers HAVE a belly...have you noticed? they dont look like run way model anorexic boy herion chic...if you were taking a run way model class I wouldn't have posted, lol....Looking forward to hearing your success here cause its a great idea!

  That is so cool. I admire your bravery- I feel the same way about being looked at. I am also interested in belly dancing and putting off classes because of my weight.
It is supposed to be a really great exercise and confidence builder.
I'm pretty sure though, that most people are too busy being self conscious themselves to bother thinking too much about others.
