Please try it. I always wanted to take Belly dance but was too embarrassed to try. We moved to a new city and I thought I would give it a go since I didnt know anyone. 4 years later and 40 pounds lighter I teach 3 classes a night. I am 5'10" and I am still obese according to the Air Force chart I have lived with all my life, but I feel sexy, I have made GREAT friends and I LOVE to see peoples faces when I tell them!

I recently took a bellydancing class at LA Fitness. I really enjoyed it. I do have to say that I felt like I burned a lot more calories when I did other classes like Cardio Jam or Zumba though.

It was still really fun and I would do it again.

Bellydance won't burn a ton of calories but it will improve mobility which contributes to fatloss : ) I do it from time to time at home.

I recently got to watch two professional belly dancers at a resturant and all I could think of was how seductive, graceful and movement were hypnotic. I would like to take this up but fear I have not rythmn or control what so ever lol.

You can always learn. One of the best systems - and one compatible with bellydancing- was developed by a physical culturalist in the beginning of the last century. Here's the link. Don't worry that the technique is being demonstrated by a male it works just as well for women

As far as finding a belly dancing DVD, why don't you go onto youtube and see some dancers. Then, if you find one that you like, see if they have a DVD.

Another suggestion is to look on Amazon. Read the reviews of the different DVDs.

You might also see if your local library has belly dancing DVDs. If not, maybe they could do inter-library loan for one that you saw on Amazon or youtube.

Hope this helps.

Yes belly dance can flatten stomach because the dancer using stomach more often to do the dancing. The dance is really great and interesting. You will be amaze when looking at the beautiful dancer. It's also a good exercise to lose your weight. So you don't need to have pills, medication, or even hard exercise to lose weight. Just do belly dance at home routinely to get the shape you want. Good Luck!
