Belly Dance

About Belly Dance

Originating in Egypt, this very unique Arabic dance style focuses on body isolations, and consists of percussive, vibrations such as shimmies, and fluid movements of the torso, arms, and hips. 


This low impact dance is unique in that it is beneficial for all ages of adults and fitness levels and requires no prior dance experience. It is gentle on the body using muscle isolations to build excellent core and overall muscle strength. It also improves, balance, coordination and flexibility as it targets specific muscle groups that are sometimes under-worked in traditional fitness classes. Most of all it is a lot of fun!
