“Belly dance was created as an opportunity for women to gather together, to Laugh, share in life’s wisdoms, re-gain a sense of personal identity and take control of their health and well-being while experiencing the movement and joy associated with the many styles of this ancient dance form.
The natural feminine movement encourages proper posture, strengthens and tones the upper and lower back, the rib cage, pelvic floor and stomach. The shifting steps build bone density, hip stability and balance. Graceful arm movements and veil dancing ease hand and wrist discomfort while defining arm and shoulder muscles. The shimmies increase lymphatic function by 15% helping the body protect itself from toxins. The multi-tasking and creative interpretation help reduce the risks of dementia and Alzheimer’s by 63%. Belly dance builds self-confidence, self-image and personal identity. Belly dancing is a fun and social exercise that also creates stress-fighting natural endorphin.”
