I have realized these days that this blog, despite its name, has been a lot more about the stitching than the shimmying.
This is not to say that there hasn’t been dancing in my life – I think last week’s posting about shows and workshops proves otherwise!
What it comes down to, I think, is that I’m not thinking a lot about dancing – I’m just doing it, in a very zen way. I teach, I attend workshops. I perform. I don’t often sit down with a pen and analyze my dancing or why I do it, although I DO sit down and analyze my technique. It’s just something that has always been part of me – separate from school, and writing, and stitching.
I’m going to try to remedy that omission over the next few months. Please bear with me – I haven’t thought about dance this way before, so some of my ideas may be a little half-baked. If you think they are (or if you agree!), talk to me in the comments! I love to hash things out in dialog. Heck, that goes for stitching, too!
Session 2 classes start this week – if you’re in Fuquay-Varina and have ever had an interest in bellydance, I encourage you to join us. It’s a lot of fun, good exercise, and none of us bite!
