Note the new poll...vote NO WAY!!!! help...

Ya know Lucy and Ethel....yeah, meet Tiff and Amy.
Tiff came up this hair-brained idea that we need to take Belly Dancing Classes.
What???? Okay, I'm all for trying new things...but have ya seen my BELLY!! The belly can already dance, it's the rest of me that has to catch up! I mean really...why do I get suckered into this stuff. Tiff comes up with some crazy stuff and being the "Ethel" I am...I just join in out of total peer pressure. So I am begging you....SAVE ME FROM TOTAL HUMILIATION!!!
Here's the description of the class (Parks and Rec, mind you):
Beginning Belly Dancing
Learn basic hip techniques, shimmies (um, yeah...I've already got that mastered) & muscle control(are there even any muscles left in there after 3, or 6 in Tiff's case, children?) of this fascinating dance form. A fun and exciting exercise and great way to stay fit. Step combinations, muscler isolations, strengthening exercises and working with (here's where it gets good) a veil, included. Finger cymbals are introduced.(this actually almost sold me) Wear workout clothes (oh, thank goodness...cause I definately don't have the right apparel for this sport) or dancewear with soft shoes or socks. (5 wks.)
Classes held at the Fairfield YMCA, 4949 Atlantic Ave. (yeah, that's in the ghetto).
So, seriously, Tiff (better know as Lucy) said ...if my % of yes on the poll is higher than no then I have to go through this torture.
So PLEASE...in the name of the great Belly Dancer of India....DO NOT VOTE YES!!!!!
VOTE NO TO THE POLL TO ON THE SIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK I have to vote against you and with Tiff on this one. My sister and Mom took the same type of classes in San Diego and LOVED it. (and they said that there weren't a lot of stick thin people in the class) You should give it a try. You said you wanted to do more for yourself this is something you REALLY might enjoy! :)

Hess Fam said...

I'm dying right now! I most definitely voted YES! I don't know what's better...finger symbols or the veil? Let me know if you need me to sew you a fancy veil with beads on it! I'm totally jealous! I really want to be a fly on the wall...or just a fellow student!
Oh...and thank you for your kind words in your previous post. Please know that you are always welcome to join our early morning walks along the ocean!

Hess Fam said...

Okay so it doesn't sound like you are going to be an expert with the finger cymbals...they are only being 'introduced'. What a rip off!

Titel Troop said...

That's too funny......I think you should go and at least get the finger syllables. And maybe after you complete the course they will give ya a pair of tassels.... if ya know what I mean.(wink)

Melissa said...

I love it!!! And if you are doing it, I want to do it too. Why doesn't Tiff ever let me in on any of her hair-brained ideas?! I love insane stuff like this! I think we should get a LB 10th ward belly dancing group together...that way we will all have a talent to perform for this year's Christmas program. NOTHING will beat that!

pati-Sue said...

Some people run marathons, some people belly dance. I vote yes, you go girls! I hope your dance recital is before we leave!
Can I hire you for dad's birthday party? (finger symbols and all)
Love ya Mom

Heidi said...

Amy! You should totally do it! It sounds fun and would be great to get the heart pumpin' and blood flowin'! I'm sure you'll use muscles you never knew you had. That's great! Dance away... sounds like you're gonna have to after your poll results so far. hahaha... Gof for it! The viel part sounds funny though! Don't eat burritos before your class!

Amy-Sue and Gian Del Bello said...

Hey...apparently some of you would actually ENJOY this mid-eastern form of torture and WANT to take the class as well. Well, have I got good news for you...you can take my place!!! J/K Actually, the more the merrier and maybe I'll actually consider it more heavily if you commit as well!!!????

Amy-Sue, it looks like there are a lot of fun people voting my way. The pressure is on. Who knew opening the Parks and Rec. catalog and randomly pointing to a class would lead to so much fun! Tiff

Danielle said...

You must do it!!!! Around here we all take hip hop- there is a funny site :o)!

jonesfamily said...

Melissa Johnson called me and told me about your crazy plans! I agree with Melissa Brower that it would make for a memorable Christmas show! And who knows... What if this is a talent you don't even know you have?

Heidi said...

do i hear symbols and tassles calling?... i mean a veil, calling? don't forget your camera, girl! =)tee hee hee...

Braden & Jodee Christensen said...

How fun! You will totally regret not doing it... I say go for it! Sorry :( I voted yes too!

Jackie Rama said...

This is freakin' awesome!!!!! I vote 100% yes and you'd better display your talents at an Enrichment Night!
