“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action. And because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is: nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly. To keep the channel open.” ~ Martha Graham

Shimmy time trials: Day one shimmy as long as you can. Add time each day there after for a month. We can post our progress.

There are some old songs that just get me moving! I mix them in with my belly dance music to add an kick energy boost.

I like the Motivational mix idea!

I know a Roadie for Led Zepplin. You keep on being a "Belly Boogie fool."

When all is said & done...have fun!

We were at a CD release party on Thursday and the band melded right into "Kashmir" by Led Zepplin - I simply could not help myself from being a belly boogie fool - it was so awesome!

Motivational Idea!

Create your own "Monthly Mix" - Your own collection of songs to dance to for the month. Dance it through as many times a week as you can.

Since belly dance is one of my primary physical activities, I've gotten into the habit of making a "Monthly Mix" of music to use when I'm out taking walks, when I'm doing the household chores and ultimately, when I'm dancing in the living room.

Students ask me.. How do I pick music for my "Monthly Mix?" My advice? Use the music that MAKES you move. So as the month goes by, I realize which items are on the "Monthly Mix" that I don't love.. and well.. I simply replace them. And of course - songs can reappear month-after-month - especially if your working on developing a set of combos or a choreo.

Don't know where to start? Try one of the Bellydance Superstars compilations and go from there.

Good Luck and Happy Dancing!

A good friend of mine was trying to motivate me last night (granted she had ALOT of wine, and I was sipping some as well) to do this Red Rocks Body Blast thing (yes THE Red Rocks Amphitheater.. we live about 20 minutes from there). I don't know if I am badass enough, but sounds like a real challenge: RED ROCKS FITNESS EXTREME CARDIO CORE SCULPT STRENGTH
The ultimate full body workout, and it's all FREE, (please understand this is EXTREME fitness). We do a combination of intense cardio, stair and bleacher running, ab and core strengthening, plyometrics, military exercises and yoga
PLEASE BRING water, sunscreen, a butt pad or yoga matt and gloves

emoticon Okay, so we've slacked on the Challenges' lately. Maybe, some of us are busy with other Challenges on other Teams. Maybe, we are all just busy.

However, who couldn't use a place to come & get some new Motivational ideas', quotes, Poems or just support. Here is a good place to start. This is not a high pressured challenge. Just a Motivational one.
