I’ve just been reading about Craig Murray’s belly-dancing ex-mistress and it reminded me of my Truly-Grand-Achievement at dance class last night.
We’ve been practised a Moroccan Earth dance. It’s a wonderfully earthy and tribal sort of dance and I love it. It’s fairly easy as far as dances go but for some clumsy, two-left-footed reason or other, I have struggled with my co-ordination on this one. I can usually pick up the complex dances fairly quickly (being a natural and all you know) but this dance has evaded me completely.
Well not anymore. Last night I perfected it. I performed it without a single mistake. Ok, I didn’t perform it onstage at the MEN arena in front of twenty-five thousand jingle-jangling Eastern dance fans but we shouldn’t let annoying little factlets get in the way of my fantasies huh.
Anyway, here’s a little taster of what belly-dancing looks like when performed by the real deal. Yes, wow indeed!
