    Hey, Smart Chick!!!! I’m on that beach with ya!! Partaking of the goodies you mentioned. FAB pick, Belly chick!

    BTW, is belly dancing hard? I’m thinking of taking a class this summer… I’m warding off dementia with all these new skills I’m learning…

    Hi Chicky D, I don’t think it is that hard if a person is in reasonably good shape but everybody has a move or two that they find exceptionally challenging. It really puts you in touch with the different muscles in your body because there are so many isolated movements. It’s great for toning and strengthening your core and sometimes it is like re-wiring between your muscles and your brain; sometimes there are moves that take a long time to get until your brain can figure out which muscles to move. It is also great confidence builder. Up until about 5 or 6 years ago, I would have never dreamed about dancing in public but it is a real rush! I have been very fortunate to find a teacher who explained and broke down the moves in ways I could understand. If you find yourself in a class and start learning a bit of choreography, that’s great fun and good to keep your mind open to different things. Of course all the shiny costumes don’t hurt either!! :-) I haven’t been able to dance for awhile because of a knee injury and a bit of trouble with my feet but I am anxious to get back into it!
    This is me after my very first solo that I choreographed myself!

    Thanks Lynn, how’ve you been?

    Good — we’re back home from babysitting the girls, so now we’re resting up from that. LOL Bob went back to work today (Tues.) and I told him it was to rest up from chasing the little ones around! :-) How are you doing? How has Amy been feeling? I love your pix above! You look like you’re having a great time and really enjoying yourself! Do you make your own costumes? It is beautiful!

    Your husband had to go back to work to rest up?! That’s funny! I’m doing good and Amy has been seizure-free for almost a month now so that’s great!
    The picture above was taken after our very first student show that we put on in town (every other show is always out of town) and it was amazing!! I have pretty well made all of my own costumes and this one was made by crocheting paillettes into shapes and attaching the finished piece onto the bra, then doing the same for the hip belt. It turned out pretty good. Thanks for your kind comments! :-D
    Good to chat with you again but it’s getting late so I will say goodnight. Have a good one!! :-)
