I have always been fascinated by belly dancing. It’s just wonderful to watch.
All the shivering, shimmying, undulations and moving of the hips and belly are just amazing! So as I was shopping one day I found a set of Zills with an instructional DVD that teaches you how to play them. OMG! I love playing the Zills.
I find it’s very good for the fingers, wrist and hands. Also teaches you hand coordination and learning to play them with the drum beat or outside of every drum beat. It’s so interesting and exciting to do. I find watching belly dancing is just so amazing! The dancers make it look so easy because the moves are done so smoothly. I know it has to be kind of difficult to learn. I cannot wait to try it.
Once I get these Zills down pact. I might take a class on belly dancing itself. I like watching all kinds of performances and it’s just so entertaining. I’m finding that I prefer the Ghawahzee style dancing of the Egyptian belly dance. There is also the Greek belly dance and Turkish belly dance. They all are just so seductive and feminine. I find that it can be so hypnotizing too.
The Bediah (the belly dance costumes) are absolutely so beautiful as well. I been looking the hip sashes, wraps, beaded and coined bra tops, skirts and veils. Definitely I am going to wear a veil if I ever learn to belly dance. Wearing a veil give the appearance of a being a mysterious woman. Oh Yeah!
So I hope to one day surprise my husband and perform for him, even if I can only learn just a few moves, like a belly roll and the shimmy. I like the ankle bracelets too and body henna.
Anyway it sounds like a plan. (LOL) Also it seems like this could be such a good workout/exercise so I believe I will give it try.
