    Ok, so I know my belly does it's own dance :giggle: but I've always wanted to have a go at belly dancing.

    Does anyone else do it?

    He he me too, mine is particularly delightful as it has that saggy sole source look about it and plenty of silvery stretchmarks too :giggle: I'd have to strap it all in if I did do belly dancing :giggle:

    I would really love to do it though, supposed to be great for toning your belly too

    Oooo me too! I'd love to try it!! There's nothing near me though.... I have been wondering if it would be fun learning with a DVD?????? Kinda the only choice I have for now.

    It's great fun! I've got a DVD although it's more for teaching technique rather than an actual class on DVD. Search on Amazon for "Belly Twins" though and you should find Neena and Veena Bidasha's aerobic bellydance stuff. They're not the only bellydance videos but they are pretty popular at the moment.

    I'm scared ;)...... Found a class with a lovely lady on monday evenings.... she's very helpful and wants me to go early first time so she can assess what I can and can't do comfortably, so she offer alternative moves where needed (I've got a false hip joint, still not got full muscle power from op) ...... But there's no-one to go with me so I gotta swallow hard and go in alone :eek:

    Just to let you know Kath, I tried ringing both of the belly dance class leaders in my area on Friday but no answer on either number so I sent them both emails. I'll ring again on Monday afternoon if Ive not heard back from them.

    Ok thanks chick, hope they've got something that suits us - my friend's been doing it for a while now (she's lives Stourbridge somewhere) and her stomach is almost flat :eek:

    WOW really???? :eek::D sounds good !!!!

    I found a website that explains it's very good for anyone with a bad back... where I'd have thought it a problem, aparently it helps and improves it.

    Great website! I used to suffer with my back before I lost my weight, it was always going. Usually when I was in the shower and I'd get stuck and have to wait for the pain to pass.

    Luckily that all went with the weight :D
