A Thanksgiving Bellydance Lesson

Normally I have bellydance practice on Tuesdays, but due to the craziness of holidays and exams, practice was up and canceled. And because the teacher in me is itching to get out, and because there are many of you who have expressed interest in bellydance if-only-you-had-a-teacher-near-you, I thought I'd share a bit of dance technique with everyone as my way of saying thanks. The below move is called a smoke hand. It's really good for impressing people at parties, and for some reason grossing our little kids (It's fun to tell them right before you do this that you have no bones in your hand. :P).

Happy Bellydancing Thanksgiving everyone! :)

Interesting! I've been interested in bellydancing and bought an instructional DVD for it but haven't gotten around to trying it out. Watching your instruction for the smoke hand made me stop for a second. It's similar to the hand movements done in hula! :D Hopefuly my hula skills will come in handy as I try out bellydancing.
