Belly Dancers!

I went to my 4th bellydancing class last night.
It is so fun! I totally suck, but it is fun!
And you still feel sexy even if your not very good at it. The class I go to is at my gym, most of the girls there are going to perform at a fair.

Anyway, I think this is a great exercise (especially for toning) and women of all shapes and sized were there.
So I'm a total newbie at this and was wondering if there were any others around here! Tell me more about belly dancing! The instructor seemed to know a lot of the dance's history, it's pretty cool. What kind of people are normally drawn to it? And how long does it take (if ever) to get good at it? I was watching some of the girls there thinking, "there is no way I can get my booty to move like that!" :LOL

I haven't taken a belly dancing class yet, but it totally excites me. As soon as I get some money I'll do it. Several of my close friends in Portland got really into it and one even travelled to do a workshop in Italy. Sounds liberating and fun!
There's a bellydancing class starting near me in July, and I am SO THERE!!! I've done some videos, and played around with it a bit, and I just LOVE it!
I have always wanted to try bellydancing. How fortunate you are to be able to take a class near you! There is a video at our library, I'm going to have to check it out. Keep working on it, I'm sure you're better than you think!
You all are going to love it!
Any others out there?
I just bought a video. I can't wait to try it. I wish there was a class around here.
I took classes for a while at the local rec centre after I had my daughter. It was pretty fun - very low rent in a 'rec centre' kind of a way, with lots of old ladies and me (so I felt pretty hot, for a change!

I also totally sucked - I'd always be the only one turning in the wrong direction and crashing into everyone else...but, I wouldn't mind trying it again!

Funny that this thread was started . .. I took my first class last night. I really liked it. It's funny though . . . I really have a hard time coordinating the non-dominant side of my body. I can't wait to put it all together.
