Where Your Body, Mind & Spirit Moves
The world?s oldest dance, Belly Dance, is a spiritual connection between mind and body. Belly Dancing is as grand and imperial as classical ballet but, differs because it offers it?s practitioner a total experience of well-being, joy, freedom and most importantly, is a celebration of the feminine soul and inner spirit through movement.
