Style of belly dancing

The style is largely based on the Egyptian with strong influences of the Classic Arabic Technique, which is really very elegant with a lot of movement taking place in the upper body and arms as well as the hips. The basic feeling is one of centeredness, with fluid graceful movement coming from and returning to this center. The result is a quality of unique grace in this style with fun elements – always - of letting go and laughing at ourselves.

Belly Dance your way into shape

As an exercise belly dancing has it's benefits in the weight-loss department. Because of the various intricate movements and the physicality required, you will have an increase heart rate and your major muscle groups will all be active. Combine this with the length of the class and you are on the right track. Remember, health and weight loss should always be discussed with your health professional, as exercise is only one component.

Age, Weight And Shape

One of the things that I like most about this dance is the fact that it is for real women! With real bodies! And real lives! Don’t allow any negative concepts of self-image to restrict you here. This dance is about learning to move freely, develop confidence and be the best you that you can be. I have women of all ages in my classes and they all have so much fun. If you are hung up about weight I can show you several voluptuous and very popular Egyptian dancers. If you think you have to be really voluptuous but are slim, I can show you several slim and very popular Egyptian dancers. So, come along and be beautiful! Your self-image will develop in the most wonderful way. Wow! To actually feel good about ourselves.

Injuries And Belly Dancing

Belly dancing is by its nature not a very stressful dance on the joints and ligaments, your belly muscles are strengthened forming better support for your back and hips, helping to ease the strain on your other joints. Whilst good muscle tone is a wonderful byproduct of belly dancing I would never require of you to attempt anything that may put you or your health at risk. Consulting with your doctor is the first recommendation I give, specifically because there are certain injuries that will not benefit from the exercise that belly dancing provides.
