Middle Eastern Dance – Shimmy & Shake!

Are you curious about this ancient dance?

It has powerful benefits for your body and soul.  Learn how to shimmy, shake, and isolate your body – for wellness. Belly dancing is considered a weight-bearing exercise that can increase bone density and prevent osteoporosis. One of the best health benefits of belly dancing is improved posture and strengthening of back muscles. We will also practice flowing movements that help you to connect with your feminine side. Join in the fun and bring a friend!
