I started my new gym program yesterday, and it has got lots of shoulder and chest work. All to help with balancing swords on my head, holding my arms up for veil, and to get a bit more power when I "smack" that stick down dancing saidi. I also get to do suspension training, it's appeals to my inner monkey. Really I hang here by my arms - fab LOL
It has been ages since I have had a dance-a-thon. My record was the "Shine on you Crazy" - Diamond Jubilee weekend, where I think I did 9 hours straight. Though to be fair there was an emergency banana and a glass of monkey milk moment (you may know it as skimmed milk). I remember us having a patriotic moment in the early hours, and belly dancing to Vera Lynn, Colonel Bogie and Land of Hope and Glory. After that Marv became convinced that there wasn't a song I couldn't bellydance to if I wanted.
We tested this further a V :) I took my veil. Marv got good at explaining to people that it wasn't a "parachute" and that I just liked dancing. My favourite memories were dancing with Marv really going for it "old skool" to David Guetta, and then dancing to the Killers "Are we human or are we dancer". A song that most people don't get, but strikes a special cord with me.
