Belly dancing has a long history. Many people don’t realize it, but this sexy dance is over 5000 years old! The origins of belly dancing is a subject that is up for debate. One theory is that it originated in India, and eventually these hip swinging dancers moved their mid-sections all the way over to Europe. The dancers wear different costumes depending on which country they originate from (for example, Egypt, Lebanon or Turkey). Just as the costumes vary from country to country, the specific moves are also different. However, the result remains the same: Sexy.
The “Shakira Factor”
Tempted, or still undecided on whether or not you would like to give it a whirl? Ladies, I have a little test for you. Sit your boyfriend, a friend who’s a boy, or a complete male stranger down in front of a television screen showing a Shakira video — you know, one where she is dancing provocatively while showcasing her amazing abs and torso. If you had these guys hooked up to a medical monitor, you would probably see that their body temperature was rising, their heartbeat was quickening and their pupils were widening.
Wouldn’t you like to be a goddess like Shakira? Belly dancing is very sensual, and having a “private dancer” is a huge fantasy for many guys. So, what’s stopping you?
I realize that it might be intimidating. I have been fighting genetics most of my life, desperately trying to sculpt washboard abs. However, any extra “fluff” you might have is actually a very important asset in making the dance seductive and feminine. You might find yourself even appreciating this extra wiggle as you let yourself go and float off with the methodical music.
Belly Dancing Bonuses
Putting its uniqueness, and sexiness aside, belly dancing is also a wonderful workout. The pivots work muscle groups in the abs, pelvis, trunk, spine, and neck. As an added bonus, if you do it correctly, and often enough, it can actually help relieve back pain!
Even if you never decide to become a pro dancer, or swing your hips across Europe as the original belly dancers did some 5000 years ago, taking an hour-long course is a great way to experience something new, move your body in a different way, and who knows, maybe kick off the beginning of a whole new you.
