This blog is more often than not a lesson in what not to do, but I've become all philosophical after having performed on Sat. in the Belly Dance Recital.
This was the performance in which I, lil ole carma, was the lead in our group.
Here's more of an action shot, so you can see that I did, in fact, move:
and here I am in the chorus line:
The style of belly dance my group was doing is tribal. There were other styles of dance at the recital, featuring the slinky costumes more commonly associated with belly dance. If I decide to participate in the next recital, bring on the slink!!!!
Am I an exceptional dancer? not by a loooooooooong shot, but has it been fun breaking outside my comfort zone? You betcha!
If there is something you've been itching to try (assuming the itching is not due to chiggers) - Get out there and try it!!!! To quote Bon Jovi, "It's [your] life. It's now or never....." (all good epiphanies involve Bon Jovi in some way or other...)
If doing it for yourself isn't a big enough motivator, my son said to me that one of the best parts of the night was being able to say "That's my mom up there!" (how cool is that?)
What is it you've been dying to do?
