After class I was talking to my cousin Amy or ' Aimichka' about finding a good belly dancing name. I'm having a hard time finding one that's just right. 'Cassandra' is actually is an appropriate belly dancing name, being Greek and all, but it's my professional daytime name. Boring. I want another one. I really like the gypsy names.
I love belly dancing. It feels like a celebration of my body and of being a woman. I feel so good after I've stretched and moved. I love the music. When I'm not trying to remember the choreography or goofing off with Teen Kitten or my aunt or cousin, I sometimes get caught up in the music. My body starts to feel a part of the music. The jingle of the coins become part of the music too. It's a connection with something beautiful.
