Song: Temperature (3:37) by Sean Paul from The Trinity
Tonight I enjoyed great fun RAQ’n out to Britney Spears and giggling over unending silliness with a student in my bellydance class. I am blessed by our dual explorations of movement throughout the time together! Many thanks to M (you know who you are)!
As we danced and played this evening, my student mentioned every time she hears Temperature (mostly when she’s traveling in her uber-adorable MINI Cooper) her bum just gets a bouncing and grooving. For her, it’s one of those special tunes that reaches into her body and just takes over. I can relate. There is some music which simply screams to be explored and danced to!
Following M’s lead, I chose to use Temperature as today’s Motion365. The rhythm is sassy and the beat is wicked and my hips certainly responded to the playtime. Shimmies. Oomies. Pelvic Twists. With a few rib rotations and shoulder rolls thrown in for good measure!
