Full Description

Belly dancing is natural to a woman's bone and muscle structure, with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form.

Health Benefits:

Muscles in the abdominals, arms, upper and lower back, hips and thighs improve in tone and strength

Balance, posture, coordination, and circulation improve

The fluid nature of the dance helps to relax and lubricate joints

Belly dancing is a weight bearing exercise good for maintaining healthy strong bones

Exercising the abdominal area, by rolling the belly or swaying the torso, helps food move along the digestive system

Lively, continuous belly dancing is a form of low impact aerobic exercise that, practiced regularly and in sessions of 20 minutes or more, can aid in weight loss, stress reduction, and management of high blood pressure

Other Positive Aspects:

Suitable for all ages, body types, and abilities

Wonderful for social connection with like-minded individuals

Provides an outlet for creativity

Gentler forms of belly dance are useful for pre-natal exercise, strengthening pelvic muscles and relaxing the mother to be

As with yoga, focus on the breath while moving helps to ground and center the dancer, aiding in a relaxed sense of well being

Celebrates and honours femininity.

Provides a safe environment for expressing sensuality in a gentle yet powerful way

Body acceptance, awareness and confidence naturally evolve with this empowering art form
