Sensual Movement

One of the things occupying my time while I was away from my blog was the reality show, Dancing with the Stars. DWTS was definitely 'must see TV' for me this spring. I couldn't get enough of it. Sure, seeing the softer, feminine side of rapper Lil Kim was a draw, as was watching the sexy ass of Sex in the City's naked neighbor glide across the floor. Both had a lot to do with keeping me glued to my seat. But more than those two stars, I was mesmerized by the sheer sensuality and passionate nature of the movement.

In fact, going to Argentina and taking tango lessons is one of the items on my every growing 'bucket list.' Also on that list are belly dancing lessons. Both are, IMHO, two of the sexiest dances in the world. Because you see, there is dancing and then there is sensual dancing, and you know the difference the moment you see it. It really doesn't matter if it's choreographed ballroom dancing or just letting loose at club. Sensual movement radiates from within--it contains a fluidity and confidence that reveals the dancer's inner connection with her sensual self. It is the personification of one's sensuality and a outward show of a woman's feminine confidence. It's not vulgar or overtly sexual, but rather just a "damn that's sexy" way of moving.

I've stated a million times that sensuality is your enjoyment of the world and your own physicality as perceived by your senses. And when you live sensuously, it radiates, translating your sensory experiences into sensual expression and giving a sexy quality to the way you move--and dance--and telling the world that you are comfortable with your body and being you.

Sensuality is not a special talent or skill possessed by only some of us. We all have it, it's just a matter of rediscovering it, nurturing it, and applying it to every aspect of our lives, including the way we move about our world. So whether in the privacy of your own home or the gym or the club, become comfortable in expressing your sensuality and yourself through sensual movement.
