Belly dancing is empowering, clears the chakras, improves flexibility and core strength, improves body-image and promotes a sense of community among women.
Belly dance is sensual for sure, but was never intended as a dance of sexual seduction. This ancient dance style was danced by women, for women, to keep the body strong and flexible for childbirth, as an offering to various goddesses, and to make life more enjoyable.
Get your dance on!
