well, i did it! here i am, doing my first solo performance, with a big cheesy smile, and i was shaking like a leaf! i did o.k, i think. i haven't seen the video of it yet, but my daughter took this photo, and my instructor, melody, took video, so we shall see (maybe tomorrow) how it really looked! everyone was very nice and supportive, and said i did good, and that they couldn't see how very nervous i was. i only switched my mind about my costume three times last week, before saturday night of the performance! and i think i only left out one part of the choreography, so i had a little time where i was ahead of the music, but i had practiced it so much, that i had it happen several times where i had time left over, so i had a move to 'fill' the unexpected "oops, i forgot something" part! i just did hip circles until the music was where i was. and i got flowers from my instructor for doing my first solo, how sweet was that!

Gratz on your first performance! The outfit looks gorgeous.

My sister-in-law has gotten me into bellydancing--but I'm just starting, so no performing yet, lol. But someday!

Bravo!! A Solo! I want a Youtube!! Guess what? one of my moms friends is doing belly dancing following on a tv program. My mom is making her an outfit for her birthday. I told my mom to look at you for inspiration.

Hope you are well and CONGRATULATIONS for flying solo. You go girl!
