Belly dance is an art form that is specially meant to bring out the finer aspects of one’s inner beauty and focuses on the feminine aspects of one’s self. It empowers one to face the world with zest & confidence. Initially it was known only as the cult of folk dance that originated in ancient Egypt. Then as it spread, it was modified and incorporated with other dance forms like Khaleeji, Baladi & Cabaret, without losing its original roots. Today, it is widely popular and much in demand. Focusing on technique & styling, the dance training will be most authentic. The training involves toning up of one’s body & keeping one flexible and in shape.
