Belly Dancing

17 Aug

I decided to go to a belly dance class at my gym tonight

I love dancing and have done numerous types of dance growing up but never belly dancing. It was an experience!

There were plenty of moves that were challenging. I realized that my body doesn’t like to move in certain ways. There were lots of awkward moments but I wasn’t alone. Almost everyone was giggling at some point.

By the second half of the class I got the hang of things..sort of. My arms hurt like crazy though and my butt and abs were getting their own little workout. The instructor was really fun and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere in the class.  It was definitely a nice break from running. I may try this class again!
