    Is it just me or their should be a fusion of

    belly dancing and ballroom dancing? Like basically the women would have to touch bellies the whole time while waltzing. What do you guys think?

    I find belly dance to be very beneficial

    for women. Not only is it great exercise but it boosts self confidence and helps you find your inner goddess. Because I've got a curvy pear shaped figure, I find it very empowering to flick my hips especially while wearing a coin belt. I also like to think of it as time for...

    I simply love it... it's so relaxing and feminine... but the best part is after the exercise, when we turn off the lights and lit up candles and we're stretching :)

    Belly Therapy

    The first time I ever tried belly dancing was at my step-aunt's wedding when I was fourteen. My step-aunt's cousin (my step-great-cousin?) is a dancer for the Silk Road Company out of Washington, D.C. and she taught me a few moves on the dance floor. I remember her telling my to...
