Shaking It Like Shakira
Sometimes a week just flies by and others seem so slow. The work portion of the week during the work day has been slow but my evenings have been flying by this week. Monday and Wednesday night I had dance and it is quite busy there trying to get in as much choreography as I can before the week off for Spring break. Then on Tuesday this week I took a Hip Hop Belly Dance class through the local community center. I had no idea what to expect but I did not expect to see so many woman there. There were at least 60 of all ages and shapes. The instructors were very energetic and are more concerned with us having fun then learning to dance. The class does focus on belly dance moves that we'll do to Hip-Hop style music like Shakira and Beyonce. The class was fun and I could feel the burning in my hips and in my abs during class. I wasn't sore though yesterday or today but I've signed up for a 4 week session so I have 3 more classes to go and then I'll decided if I want to move up to the next level. Next week I won't have class due to spring break for the school district but the following week the instructor is bringing in the noisy skirts that we can buy from her. I think those will make it even more fun.
