Hello my sisters of the belly :)

It has been FOREVER since I've been to spark -

Went back to school, got certified as a personal training just finished classes for nutritional counseling, in between had a battle with uterine cancer and dealt with the removal of another lump in my boob and add to that fighting with the public school administration and I've been one busy cookie :)

I was taking classes as a local place here until I found out my instructor was a complete an utter fraud - she invited me to attend her teaching seminar and all the information that she handed out was from other dancers (like Keti Sherif) that wouldn't have been so bad but she put HER OWN NAME on the stuff - sorry but I can't dance for someone like that. EVER

So I finally found a place where I would LOVE to take classes but alas it's to far away so I'm still looking - in the meantime I have been practicing every chance I get and have been working it ;)

This past December one of my shimmy sisters (actually I swear we were sisters is a past life) decided to put on a show for another one of my sisters clients (My other sissy is a massage and aquatic therapist for special needs kids) so we put on a show called Shimmy Round The Christmas Tree - it was a very very low key invite - all the girls we invited to preform had to come up with their own choreography and for some it was quite a challenge. But all in all it was great fun - I am hoping to organize a bigger event this year and have the price of admission either be $10 for local food banks, at least $10 in food donations or a new unwrapped toy for the kids in the area - the trick is finding a place that will donate the space for the show. :)

If you wanna catch a few videos of our very LOW KEY show go to www.youtube.com/user/dentedphotos

if you do decide to head over there please remember your sense of humor ;)

Happy Hip Drops and belly kisses my new shimmy sisters!!

"If you are grouchy, irritable, or just plain mean, there will be a $10 charge just for putting up with you."

They say the average woman is a size 14 - who wants to be below average??!! ;^)

Lucky! I live in a resort town in the mountains of So. Cal. The only Belly dance fun I get is totally on my own now. It's still fun tho!
I haven't been able to shimmy the past couple days (sick) So I will go for it today!
How bout you think of a move for next Onlygirl?
Have a good time!

Okay-I have an idea. Each one of us has to post a belly dance move here and the whole team must practice this move once a week.
I'll go first: Everyone must shimmy for ten minutes straight-daily.
Who will post one next week?

Have you danced today? emoticon

Sadly, I have not in awhile and I really need to. Makes me feel-well-beautiful..

What's your favorite belly dance move? I think mine is the figure eight.

What's the easiest move for you? Mine is the (oh what's it called?) The head side to side.

What poses most challenging for you?
Arm postures for me and floor work. G-not going to say I'm getting old! Oh maaan-I just did.

Take good care

Dancing is one of those things that just feels good! I don't have to scold myself and make myself do it like I do with exercise sometimes, I just find that I want to do it! And I even feel sexy while dancing! I've attended...15 classes so far. I only started in the spring, we had all summer off and I was sick causing me to miss a couple, so still very beginner and a lot left to learn but I absolutely love it!

I consider myself a beginner too Spiritual Bear. In my world tho I'm a pro! hahaha
It's just wayee fun, no matter where you're at in the art.
I'd love to have a complete belly dance ensemble even if I never perform again.(I performed once) I have 2 scarfs-that's it.
Have any of you checked out Melodia Designs? They're real expensive but if I could..The tribal pants are kewel. I think I'd wear them all the time-even if I wasn't dancing. Why not?

It's great to "see" you all enjoying yourselves here in the chat. Gonna have to check out Jenna myself. I love Rachel Brice and I also have rented-oh what are those twins? Veena and Nina? from Netflix. I really liked Amiras belly dance 101 too for beginners.

How was your solo Tam? I bet you were mavelous darlink!

PRANA_DANCER - That sounds really interesting! I love learning about theory behind things that I am interested in and how and why some things are done. In the classes I attend we do both tribal and Egyptian so hopefully some things wouldn't be completely strange to me.
Thanks!

If you're interested in Tribal at all I'd recommend Rachel Brice's serpentine. Not old does it have drills, it has a few yoga sequences put together with belly dance in mind, and a couple choreographies she walks you through. There are also some non-physical parts where she talks about music theory, the physics of back bends and the like. I love it!

SPIRITUALBEAR - I'm glad you plan to do some home practice. There a lot of good videos. I highly recommend Jenna's DVD:
Bellydance Basics and Beyond: Techniques for a Solid Foundation

A few years ago I was visiting friends in LA. I contacted Jenna while I was there and got a lesson with her. She is super nice and her DVDs are excellent. You can get the DVD from Amazon or from her website. You can check out the reviews to see if you think you'd like it. There are so meny to choose from.

Another option is Neflix. I have rented a lot of belly dance DVDs to see if I'd want to own them.

Have fun!

Tamaze - Have fun with the show! Sounds like fun!

I really need to start practicing my belly dance a whole lot more away from class. Especially since I am not going to be taking part in class for a while after next Monday. I don't have money for dance and the gym and I'm gonna go with the gym until I have rebuilt my muscles back up to where they used to be. It's also a little easier to work at my own pace at the gym. But in the mean time I am gonna start getting some videos so I can practice at home.

Anyone have any suggestions for some easy belly dance videos? I'm still a beginner (only started dance back in the spring with no classes over the summer) and I have weak muscles from ketoacidosis (which wasn't fun!) so I can't do too much difficult work at the moment.

It's great to see some activity. I hadn't been by for several days as I've been busy with a challenge team I joined that lasts until Christmas and another motivation group for October. It's been helping me stay focused on my health goals.

I'm really looking forward to the weekend. One of my belly dance teacher's hosts a workshop & show every October. Last night started sewing a gold skirt to wear layered with a purple beaded skirt for a group performance on Friday night. Ohhh, I'm excited about the solo I'm doing on Saturday night. Must practice practice!

I have this great DVD but still haven't used it fully. I loved to watch Shimmy on FitTV and that's where my love for belly dancing started. I do a little w/out the music. Figure 8's are my favorite. Anything that involves moving my waist. It does a body good! emoticon

We can do it Pam.

My back is much better. I am back at practicing and did well in class last night. I'm taking in easy when I feel any tightness in my back/hip. The show is Oct 22nd & 24th so I still have time to drill the group choreography and my solo.

I do like the profile pic for now. I love those classic photos. I will send you some I've found later to change it up.

I am on track with my calorie and exercise goals for the challenge teams I joined.

BTW Pam, did you make it to the Belly Dance Super Stars show?

I'm still checking in on our team.... I'm busy with a challenge team so not much time to hang on our team. I'm working on eating healthy and exercise. I'm hoping my strained back will be better soon. Haven't been doing much belly dance movements to ensure I heal in time for our upcoming workshop and show.

Hi All! Hope you are having a great Monday! I took a few belly dancing classes (cabaret style) about 5 years ago and loved it. I performed once in a student performance and learned how much practice goes into just one dance! Soon after the show, I stopped dancing (for various reasons) but I would love to start again. I love just about all forms of belly dance but my favorites are tribal and fusion. Glad to see a bit of fresh activity on the team. It's been quiet for a while now.

Hi ya Nancy Kareem from Dubai and before that Egypt. Your son is adorable!
I've always wanted to visit Egypt-Someday..
I think belly dance is one of the funnest form of exercise too.

Hi Cierapoet from TX. How's the weather been lately?
I've got to ask-Are you a poet? That's so kewel. My mother's a published poet.

Sunflwr-Maria It's great that you still come around though you've met your goal. We can all use the support no matter where we are on this journey-never ending.

Hi Tamaze! Sounds like you've had a lot of experience in B.D.

I want you all to know that I am NOT a professional belly dancer. I just LOVE it is all.
I performed for the first time last year with my class in a dance production-which included classes of Ballet; Jazz etc.
I would've continued if it wasn't for the instructor leaving our small mountain community with out notice. :(
So now I dance to dvd's-occasionally with another girl from my old class.

Take good care

Hi Belly Dancing Team.... I've been a member of this team for... over a year and a member of sparkpeople for over 2 years. Just starting to post and connect which I think will help keep me focused and stay on plan. I'm working on eating healthy and staying within my sparkpeople calorie range.

I love the Art of Belly Dance. I perform mostly perform Cabaret, but have done Tribal and Fusion. I'm currently working on an Oriental piece.

Glad to see the team is getting active!

Hi, Pam and everyone. I'm Maria, from Carmel, Indiana. My children have grown and I'm finally trying to do some things for myself now. For those with kids--don't wait as long as I did to do something that's fun just for you!! I'm a late bloomer belly dancer. I dance with the Blue Fire Tribe, and with the student troupe of Black Rose Caravan. I love tribal dancing because of the sisterhood and closeness of the tribe members.
I also do hoop dancing with a hula hoop, and got several of my tribe sisters hooked on that. Since I started dancing and hooping, I've actually gone past my goal as far as weight loss, so I just pop in to Spark People occasionally for maintenance and motivation.

Hello ladies and Happy Monday!!! emoticon

Hope everyone had a great weekend. It's cooler in my part of Texas which makes me so very happy. Trying to do what I can to make this year my year to reach my weight loss goal. Sidelined from doing cardio at this time because of an accident at the beginning of this month but I will do what I can. I can sit and move my belly which I did even before the accident. My way of also toning because i do not like laying down to tone my abs.

Hoping you all enjoy today and have a great week. Wow...September is almost gone. Another month closer to your goal! emoticon

Okay, this is super weird. I just became a leader for this team and already I come here and there's a message stating basically that I had better post somethin' or else 'cause I've been inactive as team leader here for the past 60 days?? Wha?? I posted last here on September 18th-this year. Hmmmm-Glitch I guess.

Done byotching~

Well, hello there team! How's everything?

I'm Pam-47- mother of two manchildren and married. I have a dog, 2 cattens and an Iguana.
I like to read, write, walk, dance and dream.

What other interests do you have other then Belly dance?
In the art of Belly dance; what do you generally lean toward; Tribal or Cabaret? I like them both.

What brought you to Spark? I needed a healthy lifestyle attitude adjustment and heard about the site from a friend.
I need to lose ideally 24 pounds. It's nice to have support trying!

Take good care
Pam :)
