    Ooh, I can picture it now…are you a bellydancer? They are SO beautiful and mesmerizing. I wanna learn SO bad but those OnDemand lessons on TV just aren’t cutting it! lol

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    By the way, I was reading some of the comments on the Egg Hunt blog and you are hilarious!!

    wow, cool Elaine!

    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Thanks! I have been belly dancing on and off for about 30 years (I guess I’ve just given away my age!) It’s great~I’ve had to take a bit of time off because of a knee injury and I don’t want to over-do it. It is great for fitness and confidence. If you could find a teacher that is good at breaking down the movements, then you would be set. It took me a long time to find the teacher that was right for me. You should check into it!!

  5. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    I definitely will, thank you. After I “master” that, I’m onto Flamenco dancing!! lol Any pics of you performing?? (I’m a pic junkie)

  6. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Flamenco sounds nice; my teacher has done a bit of that as well but I have never tried it! Here’s a pic taken at our local Multi-Cultural festival, it was great fun!

    Thanks! The veil was purchased on either eBay or Etsy, I can’t remember. Another favorite! :-)

    Hey Elaine I’ve taken one belly dance course at a local gym that has since closed. It was alot of fun, but my work schedule kept interfering with class, so I had to drop out and never finished. :( Maybe you can give Ivy and I instructions. Lol!

    E Gill,

    thanks for such a beautiful Pick and photo of your belly dancing dress! the deep purples, lilacs, silvers and peacock colors go well together!

  13. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Sure… first you stick your right hip out to the right on the diagonal………:-)

  14. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Hehehe….

    CAS says:

    Goofy! (giggle)

  16. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    I killed my computer about a year ago and lost a lot of my previous photos so I’ll have to dance in that dress again soon so I can send a pic along. It really is gorgeous in that liquid metal fabric in deep royal purple!

  17. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    To CAS ~ then you pull your right hip around to the back diagonal and then back to center. In the meantime, your other hip is going opposite directions because hopefully they are attached….hehehe…

  18. CAS
    CAS says:

    They most certainly are still attached, (gaffaw) Elaine you’re almost as silly as Funny Chick, welcome to our little group, you fit right in. :)

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Hi, Elaine! This is Funny Chick!! I think I got it…. What do you do next??? This is very uncomfortable!!lol Hey Chicky Babe, I think we have Belly Chick here!!! How about you? I love this pick!!!

  20. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Hi Funny Chick! Sorry to have left you in such an awkward position! Okay, now you do the same with your left hip; make a circle to the front diagonal, side and back diagonal and then back to center. Make sure you have soft knees. There, you have just done a figure eight! Hehe. Belly Chick works because I certainly have the belly for it but it is all bought and paid for, all (?) inches of it! Thanks again for such a warm welcome!

  21. Anita QoG Funny Chick
    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Belly Chick it is!!!!! I don’t know if my knees are soft, but, I noticed I’ve got to stop washing the floor on my hands and knees!! they look awful!!lol, yeah, since menopause hit, well, let’s just say, I am proud to announce the birth of done-lapped, right over the top of my pants!!hehe, Welcome aboard!!!!

    CAS says:

    As keeper of the “Chick List” I hereby proclaim Elaine AKA E Gill is now Belly Chick!

  23. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Funny Chick, let me rephrase that because, at my age, pretty well everything is soft! (I used to be a 40DD, but now I am a 38 long!):-) What I meant was not to keep you knees to straight so that no one hurts themselves and you can get way more movement out of your hips when there is more give to your knees. I find I shrink about two inches when I dance because of those knees; trouble is, doing that also makes me look wider! Signing off, Belly Chick :-)

  24. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Belly Chick, signing back on because I stumbled across my 13th egg! WhoooHoooo!

    Jeannes Gems - Gem Chick says:

    ok – I added Elaine to my creepy cheat sheet too!

    Welcome aboard!
    Watch out – it’s totally addicting!

  26. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Okay, I have to ask…..what is a ‘Creepy Cheat Sheet’…sounds ominous. And don’t worry, I’m already addicted! Thanks for the welcome :-)

  27. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    By the way, I was looking through individual picks looking for eggs last night and I just wanted to say how talented you all are with your combinations of color and textures; I’m sure my ‘Favorites’ folder is heaping full now. How beautiful and how creative with titles!

    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    I’m not sure how I missed this conversation…… Oh, yeah! I was searching for those blasted eggs!!!!!!!!! You girls are hilarious!! I think I will have to give this belly dancing a go. Hope I don’t throw my hip out. LOL
    Belly Chick, where are you from?

  29. Elaine aka Belly Chick
    Elaine aka Belly Chick says:

    Hi Classy Chick, sorry I just caught up with this conversation. I live in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. That’s right, it’s the little town all the comedians make fun of! Where are you from? I’m going to have to start taking notes so that I can keep everyone’s ‘chicky’ names straight!

    Hi Elaine (Belly Chick)
    Sorry to leave you hanging on the “creapy cheat sheet”… It’s just a list I’ve started of everyone’s names, nicknames, where they’re from, etc. so I can keep things straight when I’m talking with everyone.
    Jeanne (Gem Chick)
