WELCOME TO OUR SENSUAL DANCING WEBSITE

First thing first – welcome to our sensual & exotic dances blog. Me (Janice) and Sarah are long time belly dancers located in Ohio/USA. We share same passion for belly dancing so we decied to start this blog for everyone to get familiar with belly dancing and sensual dances in general.

Turkish belly dancing is typically more energetic than other styles of bellydance which make it a good aerobic exercise that improves breathing and blood circulation. Although commonly known as bellydance, most other parts of the body are involved making it a really good whole body workout.

It is also known as Eastern dance and though not part of Western culture, this hasn’t stopped it becoming very popular in countries around the world as a healthy aerobic exercise and used by some for weight loss.

Edward Laskowski M.D. comments “Belly dancing and other types of dance can be good exercise for weight loss. In fact you can burn as many calories belly-dancing as you can walking, swimming or riding a bike” Edward R. Laskowski M.D. is a Mayo Clinic physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.

What makes belly dancing so popular as a healthy exercise is that it is also fun, and if you are enjoying yourself while exercising you are more likely to continue. So many other exercise regimens are thought of as something that has to be done rather than something that you enjoy doing.

Belly dancing is suitable for any age, shape, or level of fitness, although as when beginning any type of physical exercise program it is best to take it easy at first. If someone does have a particular health issue a bellydance teacher would advise of any moves that were unsuitable.

To learn the exotic art of Turkish belly dancing it is best to find a class if possible, but if you don’t have a class nearby there are also Dvd’s and some good advice online as our blog.

Turkish belly dancing could well be the answer if you are not only looking for a way of keeping fit, but having fun too!
