SCORKES is Belly Dancing!
Wednesday, March 08, 2006
Yes. I've been a lazy, lazy bellydancer. I skipped two classes, mainly because I've been feeling tired since my sleeping patterns are out of whack.
Anyway, in the last class I attended, I FINALLY, FINALLY mastered the dreaded Egyptian walk. I still can't do it fast, but hopefully, with time and practice, I will.
Then I find out that there's something else called the Egyptian KICK. What lar.
It's really frustrating because I keep feeling that I am not improving as fast as I want to. Guess that I'll just have to learn to be patient and realise that I need time to improve. After all, my instructor has been belly dancing for four years to get at where she is now.
So, things to improve in my dancing:
1) Shimmies (both with legs bent and straight)
2) Egyptian walk (fast)
Got to Practice. Practice. Practice.

hmmm...do they play that song, "Walk Like An Eqyptian" by the Bangles as you do the dance? hehe..
So, CSI is the culprit is it..ehehe. No worries, keep on practising. I still remembered the weird look of my housemates when I Egytian-walked while cooking one cold winter night..eheh. And dear, take note that it does not end at the kick only. I am still trying to master so many more moves..you wouldn't believe how many weird movements your hips can do!
jeremy c: *smack* you are so naughty :P
bellydancer: so much to learn, so little time!!!
Yeah I find that shimmying while I do other things (waiting for the metro, talking on the phone at home or doing dishes) really helps me think about my dancing less while I'm doing it. My muscle memory seems to builds up better that way. And I'm pretty much constantly dancing! As they say, practice makes perfect.
cinthia: I guess I need to practice my shimmies. I still can't get it quite right.
