Fun-vestigation: Do hips lie?

Posted in Project 40,Workout on Monday, January 24, 2011 at 4:21 pm by flerly.

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. http://www.atlantabellydance.com <– 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:
