This empowering and confidence building style of dance, is a great addition to your fitness programme.
Many experts say belly dancing is the oldest form of dance, having roots in all ancient cultures from the orient to India to the mid-East.
Throughout history, this ritualized expression has usually been performed for other women, generally during fertility rites or parties preparing a young woman for marriage.
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. Belly dancing is generally performed barefoot, thought by many to emphasize the intimate physical connection between the dancer, her expression, and Mother Earth.
Since the turn of the century, belly dancing has grown enormously in popularity worldwide. So why don’t you come and join us on our journey to celebrate the dance and its benefits to the body?
