So bummed right now-no bellydance-AT ALL. The instructor skipped out on us-and the studio. That's it. No phone call. No nothing. Can't believe it. I actually teared up and I wasn't the only one. :(

Afternoon everyone!

Pam - How was the Pirate Faire? A Tribal belly dance group sounds like fun.

I had a great class last night. After warm ups & a choreography we are working on, we split into groups of 3 & quickly put together a dance. 4 steps from our group choreography: an entrance, 1 move facing each other, 1 move facing away from each other, & an exit. Oh yeah, there had to be a level change in one of the two middle moves & it was to completely different music. It's great to see the creativity of each group.

My class is doing the coolest dance @ Yaa Halla, Y'all & I really want to do it with them. I just can't commit. I'm not sure how often I'm going to be in class between now & mid-August with doctor's appointments & injections. There is still time until final placements are made so I think I'll go ahead & get a costume. I'd hate to miss out because I don't have a costume.

I hope everyone is working those shimmies.

Mystyne :)

Going to a pirate fair! Yippy! I dropped off my sons girlfriend-she always volunteers to work it and I saw the tribal belly dance troupe going in. Made me want to join them. Maybe I will! Teehee

I went to my first belly dance class yesterday. It was so much fun and I love the moves. My instructor says that I picked up on the moves quickly. I will be attending class in town twice weekly. By July, I want to be able to perform for the first time. Also, in September there will be a big performance. I am so excited. My hubby is happy to see that I found something I enjoy.

Hi Pam!

I'm glad your performance went well. Sorry to hear about the rash & that you're going to miss your class. Feel better soon. It's hard not to hug when you're a hugger.

It's taken two weeks, but my voice is finally back. Laryngitis is no fun. It took longer to go away than the upper respiratory infection.

How are you feeling Mystyne?

Hi all

The performance went great! Unfortunately now I'm suffering from an allergic reaction of the skin that began Sunday morning. I was able to cover up with make up for the afternoon show. I am a hugger and I must've hugged someone with perfume-I'm allergic to. I have to learn to say no to and not initiate hugs.:(
The condition got steadily worse and I had to break down and go to the doc yesterday for a shot in the arse.
Sadly;though I am LOTS better I don't think I'll be attending class this evening.
I made a card for our instructor and got her a bouquet of flowers from all of us. My sons girlfriend will go tonight and get it signed by all and present her with it. Our instructor wasn't able to make the performance. We heard thru channels that we were the best act in the show. Wooohooo!!

Hope all is well with all of yous shimmiers out there

Pam - I know your show will go great. I know they always turn me into knots & then it all works out fine. Good Luck.

Unfortunately, I'm still sick so I missed my class yesterday. Laryngitis & an Upper Respiratory Infection - Yuck! Oh well, there will be other classes to attend.

Pam - when is your show?

Sorry for not being around. Life has been crazy & now I'm sick: coughing up yellow-green stuff, runny nose, sore throat, nausea, headache, achy joints, & I've completely lost my voice. No it's not the flu. I got tested. Just a virus I have to wait out with help of Mucinex DM. Although, the doc gave me a prescription for antibiotics to fill if I'm not better by Monday.

Mystyne :)

Hi all

Hi Mystyne, Awww Sorry you've been so tied down with docs. Yes, hopefully you can get back to class!
Your sis sounds like a wonderful dancer-wish I could see her perform.

Our show is coming up fast here. Yikes! And our class was cancelled last week due to our instructor being ill. We're supposed to have two classes this week and the several before the show. I'm skeered.
*Pam trembleing*

Take good care dancers!

Evening Everyone!

I'm so frustrated. I haven't been able to go to my class this month between doctors visits, injections, & work. Maybe next month will go better.

Pam - Scarborough Faire was great. My little sis has really grown up into a beautiful dancer. She danced with our troupe at two festivals this weekend. She did a duet at one & a solo + a large group dance at the other.

Happy Easter Everyone!

After mass today, I'm headed to Scarborough Faire with my dad to see my little sis dance. It's our local Renaissance Festival & she is one of the main dancers in one of the Stage Shows this year.

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Unfortunately, she's not a star on "So You Think You Can Dance?". She got cut on the first round of tryouts. 20 seconds of improve is not a lot of time to impress anyone.

We played zills in my class to live drummers. We have such great drummers at the studio I dance at. We've been working on zills a lot lately & I feel like such a dork. Because of all the stuff going on with my right hand, I can only wear my zills on my left hand. At least I got to go. I'm going to miss again next week because I'm having a second nerve block.

Keep that shimmy going!

Pam - you would, but a little part of you would feel proud. How are you doing?

I'm doing okay, the pain in my neck & shoulder form the injection was gone by Friday. Of coarse all the other pain is still there, but my meds keep that pain at a bearable level. I got back to the gym last night & did 45 minutes on the StairMaster. It felt good to get a workout in. I should be at my class Monday. Yeah! I hated missing last Monday.

I hope everyone else is doing well.

Mystyne :)

Aww Thank you Amyzgarden. I feel better.

Class this evening was excellent as usual. We started floor work so next week its knee pads for me! emoticon

Last week we had a journalist/photographer take pics and interview our instructor. I may have already posted that. Anyhow saw the paper today. At first I was relieved that I was cut out of all the shots but then I thought why was I cut out? emoticon

Take good care

Pam,

I was taught by my first teacher that the best old school dancers were older than current ones for a reason. They danced from their hearts and their life experience. How many 20somthings even have anything to bring to the dance? I would bet you have way more to offer than any of the "little girls" in your class. The average age of dancers making 6figures American in Egypt's hotel belly dancer heyday was 45-55 and no less than a size 14. Most of us would be goddesses in most other countries than here. I say channel your inner Fifi Abdou and enjoy it. emoticon

Evening everyone!

I had the diagnostic Stellate Ganglion Block today. Long story short, it hurt & it was positive. This means after 10 months I have a diagnosis. A scary diagnosis, but a diagnosis. RSDS. (I blogged all about it.)

My little sis & I belly dance @ the same studio & she was in the Hafla last night. She was beautiful. She performed in a group dance that uses both swords & candles. It is actually a choreography that won a Troupe Choreography competition a couple of years ago & that she is in an instructional DVD for. We had some great spaghetti afterwards.

I'm bummed because I'm going to miss my class tomorrow night. I'm going to have my diagnostic nerve block in the AM & I've heard that I won't fell like going anywhere. I'm really nervous about having it done.

Mystyne :)

My class was this evening and per usual-twas wonderful.
I feel weird about being the oldest in the class. I usually push those thoughts away eventually. Until Next time...
I could be these womens mother. Hey but I can shake it! Right, right?

Thanks guys for all your patience & support. I saw my pain/rehab doc Friday & just needed a little time to think about everything. We are going to do a test next Monday that might at least answer what is causing all the problems with my hand, arm & shoulder. Long story short, he is testing for RSDS. I just finished a blog that gives a lot more details. You guys are more than welcome to read it.

Thanks again for your patience & support.

Mystyne :)

Haha Thanx for the tip Folliage.
Had class this evening. I didn't ask about them though.
There was another beautiful bellydancer from our insructors old troupe in class and a reporter from the local paper taking pictures *Yikes* and she interviewed our teacher afterward.

Folliage - you are so right about the baby socks on the zills.

Pam - get a set of zills or finger cymbals of your own & practice, practice, practice.

Yeah, zills (or sometimes zagat/sagat) are the finger cymbals. I'm really lucky because my first teacher was very into zills/drumming/rhythyms. We had them on our fingers by the second class and learned something like 5 rhythms (aside from triples and running doubles) before the 8-week class was over. It was pretty intense, but I think it's the way to go if you want to do more than just play triples to whatever music.

Also, you have to practice. Putting baby socks on them lets you do it without making a lot of noise, so your family and neighbors don't hate you.

Wow! Where is everyone?

I had a great class tonight. We worked really hard. After warm ups we went through 3 choreographies multiple times. One with zills, one with a tambourine, & one without a prop. My head is spinning.
