The Health Benefits of Belly Dance for Women
Improves Muscle Tone
The natural movements of belly dance gently tone muscle groups in the abdomen, pelvis, torso, spine, neck and arms while providing a low-impact exercise suitable for all ages.
Coordination, symmetry and spacial awareness are aspects of belly dancing that help the body become more supple and graceful while learning to move beautifully and confidently.
The artistic and feminine movements of belly dance create positivity and freedom around sensual expression which liberates the dancer both physically and emotionally.
The repetitive swaying, circular and flowing movements of belly dance form the basis of a dance meditation that help clear the mind and induce a state of mental relaxation.
Reduces PMS Symptoms
The soothing, massage-like movements of hip circles, figure eights and undulations help alleviate congestion in the pelvic region by stimulating circulation and blood flow.
Conditions for Childbirth
Pelvic rolls and tucks in belly dancing naturally assist with pelvic relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the pelvic muscles for labour and post-pregnancy recovery.

“Michelle is a beautiful and highly professional performer and instructor. When I was searching for dancers to form a new dance company on the island I immediately knew she was exactly what I was looking for. She is hard working and easy to work with, and can be counted on for all aspects of show presentation and production. She is also very knowledgeable about Middle Eastern music and dance styles. Her dance style is graceful and elegant, and her natural smile always captivates the audience.“Najla Raqs
