Teaching Conan to Bellydance

Teaching Conan to Bellydance

Conan said he couldn't stop thinking about me during his opening monologue on Thursday and I must say the feeling is mutual! After appearing on his show on Wednesday night, Conan said, " I am obsessed with Dolphina and am wound-up like a teen-age boy".  As an antidote for what he called, "Dolphina-on-the-brain", he had James Lipton of Inside the Actor's Studio dress up in a bellydance costume and dance to the soundtrack from The Goddess Workout. I have to tell you, that of all the hundreds of TV shows I have been on, Conan is by far my favorite host. He is hilarious all the time, charming, sexy and as you can see by the clip, very tall (6'7" to be exact). It was also my favorite appearance, as it felt more like an old vaudeville comedy sketch than the typical demonstration that I ordinarily do. It was seamless, effortless and non-scripted. Conan wanted to keep things fresh, so during our "rehearsal", he simply made me laugh. Humor tops my list of most attractive qualities, therefore, Conan is extremely irresistible to me. Below is the clip from both episodes ( with the second night heavily edited - meaning I completely cut out James Lipton out of courtesy to the Goddess).

Dolphina,

You are such an inspiration to so many people! You did such a good job with "Conando" and so many others will be introduced to the dance after watching and think "if Conan can dance than I can dance too."

Thanks for being a model of a beautiful, smart, powerful, illustrious woman.

Dolphina,
I love that clip of you on Conan.

I have just recently started bellydancing about 3 months ago, my friend Shannon got me into it. And I absouletly love it. I have lost alot a weight though weight watchers and I am on maintance now. And I am finding the bellydance a great way to tone my body up after losing all that weight. I have only been bellydancing at home with videos or with my friends Shannon and Keira when then come over. But I am looking for a class in my area to take as I am feeling comfortable enough to start bellydancing in front of other people now. I enough bought a hip scarf and fridge belt on Amazon.com to wear when I bellydance to make it more fun. Eventually I want to buy a full costume to dance in. When I bellydance I don't feel like it's a workout, I feel that I am just having fun. Which is important to me, as I used to try other workouts and they wouldn't last becasue they weren't fun so I would stop doing them.

I have 2 of your videos Introduction to Bellydance, and Cardio Bellydance that I have found very helpful. Thanks Dolphina.
