This is certainly a unique subject for the letter Z! I could use a class in bellydancing to help get rid of my...er..belly:) Thanks for teaching me a new word! And yes, I will still be around for ABC Wednesdays, especially to visit; I just won't be able to post every week.

Ouch. I think I pulled something!

And really... should she be allowed to call it "belly dancing" when she obviously doesn't have a belly??

I loved this!
And I loved your wooden presents from the post below!

That is very observant of you Pamela, - and I am inclined to agree that she is entirely out of bounds. Nevertheless, I am just a small bit envious....

Beautiful Z! The bellydancer is great both at dancing and at playing the cymbals.
Thanks for sharing and for your visit! Have a great day!

Very advanced finger and body work, but I think I prefer the Canadian I'm listening to right now - Diana Krall.

You've FORCED me to look at a beautiful woman making music? I'm shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you! ;-)

Didn't know the word either.

Hildred and Charles said...

Well Roger, I think I showed considerable constraint! You should have seen what I SAW in my research into ZILLS.....WOW!

There are belly dancing classes in some parts of the UK.
I love finger cymbals, they make such a delicate sound.

I've always fancied trying belly dancing, but never quite had the courage. Probably too late now, I'd never get my arms above my head after the shoulder surgery!

Wonderful! I took a few classes a long time ago, but just didn't 'get' it. :)

Gosh there is a lot of co-ordination going on there, I don't think I'd manage to smile at the same time while holding all that together. Thanks for the new word.
