April 9th was my 23rd wedding anniversary. Yay me!
It was also the first time I had ever Belly Danced.
Cross one more thing off The Bucket List. 🙂
I loved it. It was exhilarating. I also probably danced like the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz (White Girl Can’t Jump) in a poufy skirt. But ya know, it was OK. I felt beautiful.
I could gush on for about 12 paragraphs about the gorgeous costuming, over-the-top amazing jewelry, and just the value of the “me time” that night…but I won’t. Instead, I’ll give you taste of the “Amber/Noel Magic” through some pictures from a performance they did in Pine River this winter.
Amber had a quote that night of our class that I LOVED:
“Belly Dance is for WOMEN of all sizes, ages and stages of life. Not a single thing has to change to be able to do it, other than the personal commitment to feeling amazing and luscious! It’s not a ‘dance to entertain men’…but if they witness it, they’re lucky.”
Amber and Noel have a series of American Tribal Belly Dance classes and workshops going on at all times at various locations. More info HERE.
Amber and Noel also mentioned doing many performances this summer, including some “surprise Flash Mob” appearances. I am SO THERE. Not to dance, but to watch. There’s something very mesmerizing about the music and the moves of American Tribal Belly Dance, and I can’t wait to see it again 🙂
