I have a secret. Until today only my family and my best friends knew: I started to dance. And because I'm not much into Tutus or any other kind of pink fluff, I took up Bollywood dancing. It goes without saying that I discovered I have a love for jingling and dangling jewellery, colorful clothing and maybe I want a tiara in the near future.
Next summer the dance studio I go to will have a public event. We will dance, too. Along with the belly dance mice (that's what I call the tiny little girls who do belly dancing at the same time we bollywood-dance), the tango dancers and the what-not-dancers. That's months ahead, luckily. Until then I might have made some progress. Because it turns out that I am seriously left-right-impaired. I'm able to dance-step to the right quite gracefully, but I'll have to hop back to the left because my brain doesn't do mirror-imaging.
Maybe there remains enough time until next summer for me to figure out (and please excuse my language) how the hell I'm supposed shimmy without any boobs!
