Hi,
I'm Dee. I love to dance. I have only belly danced once or twice before. Every time I do it I love it. I'm looking for new workouts for myself, and what better way to get fit and feel sexy then to belly dance. I have seen belly dancing offered on demand on cable but never thought about trying it. So, I'm here and ready to move.

The thing about this dance is that really, it is your interpetation of what the music is saying to you. The DVD's really are that artist's feelings as she is listening to the music. So don't be so hard on yourself... learn the steps, but if the music calls you in a different direction... its just you and that dvd... of course if your onstage with your troupe going left when you should be going right... well, then you're just me!!!

You'll learn that everyone has a "stupid side"! :)

I can do a move with the right hip beautifully, the left, not so much. *LOL*

You may be Surprised at the number of belly dancers who are super clumsy and feel that they have two left feet. But you would never be able to tell to watch them dance =)

what DVDs did you get??? Have super fun dancing! =)

That is the amazing thing about belly dance, there is room for everyone. That said, I doubt you have two left feet. LOL

Reached my goal November 2009!

Weight Watchers worked for me and now I work for Weight Watchers.

It is a life style, not a life sentence.

my two left feet! is there any hope for a self conscious, slightly clumsy gal in the world of belly dance?

I've always been intrigued by belly dance and I now have 2 DVDs, just haven't tried them out. I'm hoping to have the house to myself this weekend so if I embarrass myself, there'll be no witnesses!

My name is Rachel, I'm 32 and excited to try this for a lot of different reasons..for a new form of cardio, to build self confidence and perhaps gain some coordination!

I hope to be on here a lot, posting questions and learning from the rest of the team!
