bopeep: My thoughts were exactly like yours, only they came to me at 37. I saw one of my friends dance at a student recital, and when the teacher came out for her solo, I was hooked. She's a 56-yr-old ex-engineer, and an amazing dancer!

I've been taking classes now for 2-1/2 years, and I don't plan to quit anytime soon. In fact, I'm thinking about taking a tribal fusion class to see what all the hoopla is about. I love the way it looks, and I think I can move my body like that.

What kind of dance is eveyone else doing? American Cabaret style for me.

Bellydanzer: A belated welcome to you. How do you like 3FC so far?
