Belly dancing is great for toning and sculpting a nice waist line. However, you have to do something aerobic to burn the fat that usually sits on top of those nice toned muscles. I like to walk for fat burning, and I use bellydancing and yoga for toning and flexibility.

I have that DVD. Yes, I agree it is so much fun. Its not fast nor slow. Just the right tempo.

As for the modern music, I agree. Thinking about putting a veil piece to a Beatles song.

I love to watch bellydancing. Such a primitive word for such a beautiful art !! One time I went to a convention and they had some bellydancers go into the crowd. One stood by me and asked if I would like to dance with her. Yeh Right!!!! She was so flexible she almost looked like she was broken and I was so inflexable I could have broken. She was such an excellent artist and very sensual. What an incredible form of self expression and beauty !!!

The workout I do is a combination of yoga poses and stretches (which tone, lengthen and 'femenize' your muscles), gentle, low impact work-outs twice a week, such as 'luscious' (to attune myself with my body and make sure I'm doing all the moves properly) and a high-impact cardio-bellydancing routine three times a week, such as one of Rania's DVD's (for the hard work and calorie burning side of things). Between that, healthy eating and lots of running around after my little boy, I have quite a consistent and impressive rate of weightloss, and the difference it makes to your figure, sleep, posture, energy levels and mood are mind-blowing.

Think I might get a video to do at home. Sounds like fun

Rosie, I'm with you. Swirling my hips around could start a hurricane

Old thread, but if anyone is curious about belly dancing I say do it! I am doing beginner level 2 right now and I absolutely love it!!! I wasn't so sure about continuing since my first teacher wasnt the best, but I found a new persona and she is fantastic and I just want to keep going further and further and learning more. It is awesome to be able to see your body move in different ways and you would be amazing at how many inches you can trim off your hips in a couple of weeks!
