Is Belly Dancing a good exercise?

Belly Dance is an excellent exercise. You work both your body and your mind with this dance. Belly dance is a natural dance for women that
combines natural, body-friendly movement with yoga, ethnic and modern dance.

Just a reminder of what to wear to class:

Lightweight workout clothes, or a leotard and tights are fine. On a cold day you might even want to wear sweats.

You can dance barefoot but if the floor is cold you might prefer to wear ballet shoes, jazz shoes or any soft flexible shoe or sandal with a back strap. Tennis shoes are not recommended as they are heavy and clunky.
