Weekly Challenge 3-3-14

Another week, another challenge!

You know what’s funny? I wrote a whole challenge about spotting, and then when I went back to find a link to add to it, I realized I had done an identical challenge back in December! Where is my brain?

So this week, instead of talking about spotting, we’re going to talk about the turns themselves! (I’ve done challenges like this before, too, but this one is different!)

How many different turns do you know? There are so many different types of turns, all used for different looks! No matter what style of belly dance you do, you will need to know more than one turn!

What’s fun about belly dance is that we all have different names for similar turns. What names has your style given them?

This week, your challenge is to practice all your turns! Tell me how many different ones you know, and see if you can practice all of them this week! Be safe, spot, and give yourself a break if you get too dizzy! (Remember: throwing up on stage is not pretty, so don’t let yourself get to that point!)

Happy turning!

Taking the challenge? Let everyone else know!  Tweet it!
