I was talking to a friend who was doubting her ability to learn belly dance, whether that be offline or online. She told me that she was too uncoordinated. I have heard this many, many times over the 12 years or so I have been showing others the joy of belly dance for themselves. In every instance, that’s right EVERY TIME, it was not true. You see if you can walk across a room and walk between obstacles and go through a doorway, you are coordinated enough to belly dance. And even then, if you have difficulty crossing a room due to a disability, there’s a lot you can do on the spot, or even sitting down.
Most of the time, when a person believes they are uncoordinated, it is usually because at some point in their youth, they were told it by an adult or bully. That child believed it, and the adult still does.
So to make a point, I told her that ANYONE could learn. She said “What? Even a cat?” so challenge accepted! Here is the result caught on video 🙂
