Belly Dancing Lessons: A Fun Way to Shape up

Taking belly dancing lessons with a friend is a fun way to keep up a friendship, get caught up on gossip, and stay in shape. Taking belly dancing lessons as mother and daughter, sister and sister, or friend and friend is something fun to do.

Adult Education Belly Dancing Lessons

Many people find belly dancing lessons through their local adult education facilities: community colleges, community centers, or universities. If you cannot find a local source of belly dancing lessons by exhausting these options, you may have to get creative to find a belly dancing instructor.

Talk to the dance instructors that you do find, and ask if any of them is trained in the ancient art of belly dancing. An instructor may be willing to teach you one-on-one or to add a belly dancing class to her schedule of dance classes.

Other Dancing Lessons

If you have ever expressed an interest in learning ballet, square dance, or even the Tango, why not try to learn those dances with a friend, too. Dancing feels great and it burns calories, too. Moving the body to the beat of music is something humankind has been doing since music was invented.

Nothing is more fun than dancing with a group of friends to a song that you love. While other kinds of dancing may not give you the core muscle workout that belly dancing lessons will give you, you may find that you get more of a cardiovascular workout from swing dancing or contemporary dancing than from belly dancing.

Online Belly Dancing Lessons

If you can't find belly dancing lessons in your local area, never fear. The internet can help you find an instructor or it can even teach you to dance. By watching online videos, you can learn to take belly dancing lessons and perform basic belly dancing moves: the hip piston, shoulder shimmy, three-quarter shoulder shimmy, chest thrust, snake arms, and the like.

Video Belly Dancing Lessons

If you have cable or satellite TV, you may have access to free fitness videos that teach you how to use belly dancing to tone your muscles and lose weight, or how to dance just for fun. Look for a channel called Fit TV. If you have an on demand video service, look for a health and fitness channel that has workouts the viewer can do at home. Use these videos to learn basic belly dancing steps at your own pace.
