Fun-vestigation: Do hips lie?

Lovely Laura has piqued my interest with her adventures in belly dancing. She just lights up talking about and can’t wait to show off her skills and props, and I mostly love the way she said it makes her feel more beautiful — apparently it’s quite the confidence builder.

At her direction, Saturday I grabbed a groupon for 6 classes at Nazeem Allayl Belly Dance Studio, usually $10 a class, for $25. I’m really looking forward to trying it out, though it won’t be as soon as I’d thought. I apparently never learned to read a calendar, and what I thought started THIS Thursday, is actually a Thursday in Feburary — the 24th. So, I emailed them today to find out if I can use the certificate for six drop-in classes instead of waiting for a 6-week course to start. Indications by their website would point to yes, but I didn’t want to just show up without making sure. If they do allow it, then they offer Monday and Wednesday night options plus a Saturday morning option.

Of course, the groupon is good through July, so I can wait and see. I was hoping for a Thursday evening option, figuring some kind of workout class would get my blood pumping to be productive for the rest of my Thursday evening plans to study study study. <– is the website.

The only thing I need before I can go to a workout are some non-slip yoga socks, which looks like about $9 at Target, or some other kind of “slipper” shoe, as no rubber soles are allowed — which knocks out the Vibram, too. Of course, if I end up doing a 6-week course, then most of those require some prop, scarf, skirt, etc., but Laura did say she had extra of those I can borrow.

At present, Laura is going to the Windy Hill location, and I’ll be going to the N. Peachtree location — mainly because Laura is already in the midst of a course there. Hopefully, we can manage to hook up and take something together in the future. More workout buddies = more accountability! I’ll update when I have concrete details on what I’m doing when.

Also, there is a half-off depot coupon here for the same deal, that doesn’t say for new clients only like the groupon does:
