Advanced Belly Dance Class
Belly dancing is a popular Middle Eastern dance form. Originating as a folk dance, belly dancing involves performing intricate but fluid torso movements. Compared to other dance forms and styles, the focus on belly dancing is on the torso, rather than the arms or legs. Also, the execution of the moves must be done in the most graceful, vibrant and sexiest way possible.
