The Sound of My Own Drummer

The drum solo is a mainstay of belly dance. In it the dancer adjusts her movements to the beats of the drum, which in this case were eight beat rhythms. This particular choreography consisted in 1) hip drop and sweep; 2) shoulder shimmies front and back; 3) hip lift; 4) chest drop with walking; 5)hip down; 6) freestyle shimmy; 7) interior hip circles with pelvic locks; 8) traveling twist; 9) arabesque and shimmy; 10) 4-step turn and finish. Ned took 132 frames. Then, not content with it being over, he took more pics of me looking at the pics!

And by the way, for all of you Nat fans: he has discovered a new hobby. Watching the practice belly dance DVDs with me, and watching me dance.
