Belly Dance

Belly Dance is a sensual and exotic dance that when danced hypnotizes its viewers.  Belly dance was originally danced by women for women, and helped strengthen the abdomen for birth.  Although no longer danced for this purpose, Belly Dance continues to gain credit for strengthening the entire mid-section of the body.  The Dance Chamber's Belly Dance instructor, Maha, is an authentic Arabic instructor with years of experience and performance in Belly Dance in North America.
