I haven’t done it in a while and I miss it. I must find the time. Because I LOVE belly dancing! It’s hard, and at times frustrating, but it’s beautiful and so, so worth it when your body finally gets that move (like the camel, difficult one!). Or when a song really inspires you and you find yourself just dancing to the rhythm, improvising without thinking, just dancing. Belly dancing.
I love telling people that I do it, as well, because most of the time I have to explain that belly dancing was traditionally a dance by women for women and men were not allowed to watch, despite what most believe in the Western world. So belly dancing has also been the door to learning and understanding about other cultures. But it’s mainly a way to make me happy.
