Spiritual Benefits

Belly Dance unites women on a quest to understand the power of sensuality and its physical and spiritual implications.

Bellydance goes even further by also integrating the liberating notion that the female and her sexuality are deeply healthy, powerful and significant.

Suddenly the body, no matter its shape or size becomes cherished in preparation for connection. It is adorned with beautiful costuming that highlights the dancer’s unique and feminine design. It moves with confidence and grace and says..

I am divine.
