Belly Dancing

For my brithday last month I told Kory all I wanted was to take a dance class. I looked into several but most were offered during the day during the week. I didn't want the hassle of trying to find a babysitter on the same day every week for 12 weeks. And I've started babysitting again. I babysit 2 different families and their work schedules are different every week. So I finally found this. It's a beginner belly dancing class held on Saturdays from 2-3:30, for the next 7 weeks at Yavapai College in Prescott.
This past saturday was my first class. I had so much fun. Just turning 28 I was thinking that I may be one of the oldest ones there. WOW was I wrong. I was one of the youngest ones there. There's probably 30+ women and most are 50+. I ended up standing next to a teenager. She asked me how old I was and when I told her I laughed at her expression. Her eyes almost jumped out of her head and her jaw dropped. Then she said,"Your that old". I replied,"Yep I'm that old, I left my 3 kids at home with their dad." She thought I was about 21. I guess I'm aging very well. She's 17. After our class had started 3 young girls that are probaly 18-21 walked in. Other then that though the others are 50+ which isn't a bad thing it just surprised me.
I had so much fun. What good exercise it was. I don't need to loose any weight but I'm trying to tighten my flabby tummy. This class will do the trick. She started teaching us a routine already. I'm anxious for saturday to roll around again for my next class.

Wow, sounds like it was really fun. I figured there would be more older ladies than younger. The young ones seem to still "have it" or at least think they do. It's all of us married and with kids that need a kick to get things going....LOL
I'm glad you are liking it, keep us posted each week!
