    Bellydancing Basics

    Haven’t you always been in awe of belly dancers? It is such a mysterious, captivating dance that you can’t help but want to try it for yourself. Well, enough lifting up your shirt and sucking in your stomach before the mirror. Learn from the experts at Ooh La La Dance Academy! Belly dancing is natural to a woman's bone and muscle structure with movements emanating from the torso rather than in the legs and feet. The dance often focuses upon isolating different parts of the body, moving them independently in sensuous patterns, weaving together the entire feminine form. Belly dancing is generally performed barefoot, thought by many to emphasize the intimate physical connection between the dancer, her expression, and Mother Earth.
