I started belly dancing about 2 years ago and fell in love. It was a big help in my trek towards better self-esteem. It has also been a great stress relief in the rough year I just finished.
My favorite instructor here is also a big inspiration to me. She turned her life around with belly dancing. She lost 100 pounds, gained wonderful flexibility despite a curved spine, and found her self-love.
Lately I haven't been able to take any classes from her. I'm hoping to pick it back up again eventually. I do have a belly dance dvd that I use to workout with sometimes. I hope to work my way up to a performance some day!
