An Imbolc Bellydance Lesson, But First...

SNOOOOOW!!!
Madison got it's first all out blizzard today with 15 inches of snow. We knew it was coming yesterday. The school district even called off classes yesterday evening, so everyone knew it would be huge too. I spent the whole night dreaming that the storm completely passed us by and we never got any of the white stuff at all. When I woke up this morning the first thing I did was leap across my husband's side of the bed to the window. That's when the above exclamation came first. I repeated it all day while also thinking, "I want more!" While I've lived longer in the Midwest now than I have in the South, I will never get tired of snow. And I will never get tired of the things that come with it. Namely, icicles, and the joy I experience from the fact that the red SUV up there is not my car.
 Begrudgingly putting the topic of our winter wonderland aside, I present to you another holiday bellydance lesson. This time on hip slides. My devious plan is to come up with a small pattern/choreography for the next holiday. Stay tuned!

Love your shimmy :)

I have got to try and practice some of these moves. I've always wanted to learn to bellydance (partly as an excuse to buy shiny stuffs....it's a Gemini thing). I've heard it's fantastic exercise.

Hope you had an awesome Imbolc :)

Yay, more bellydancing! I'm enjoying these a lot.

I'm not sure how much snow we got here, but those pictures look familiar. My boyfriend and our husky loved it, though. Drifts were up to his waist which meant it would be around my stomach/chest if I wasn't careful. :| But I'm like you, I wanted more. This is the only place I've lived with snow so I never seem to get enough, lol.
