I speak...therefore I make noise...

Nope...I didn't see a spider, though I am sure there is one around here somewhere...I entered a belly dance competition last weekend. I completely didn't expect to win anything but somehow, I placed 2nd runner up in the Fusion category! OMG!!! Pretty exciting. Every time I thought about it for the rest of that evening, I would start crying. I know, uber girlie. I need to go out and fix a car now to make up for it.

If anyone cares to see, the link to that performance is here: www.youtube.com/watch

You go!
Your movement is very very beautiful! I could tell you were nervous. I could see you shaking a bit when you were still. That was the only thing. YOUR DANCING IS WONDERFUL!!!
I enjoyed watching! Thank you for sharing!

that's great! yay!

i miss belly dancing...i've taken a few classes, but i am absolutely useless (two left feet and i can't memorize any kind of choreography to save my life). still, it's great fun!

That was actually almost all improvised. I don't do well with choreography either. I didn't feel too good about this performance because my brain kept trying to pop in and tell me to do stuff. I like to let that part of the brain take a break and just flow with the music and moment.

Thank you both for your kind words! That's one of my favorite songs...it just "speaks" to me and I love dancing to it.
