What Is Bellydancing?

Bellydancing is a dance that emphasizes pelvic/hip and abdominal movements.
Bellydance is said to be an ancient dance that has roots from ancient North India or
Babylon. However, no one knows the exact origin of this dance. It has so many
influences including North Africa and the Middle East from folkloric tribal groups to big


In the western world, it is known as bellydance, while in the Middle East, it is known by
many names and forms and enjoyed by the whole family in all generations.

How is bellydancing linked to childbirth?

Since ancient times, people believed that bellydancing is a form of meditation that could
help women to have a painless childbirth. Now, some pregnant women are using
bellydance as a form of childbirth preparation exercise. Do you ever wonder why
doctors advised pregnant women to move a lot when the ninth month is near? It is
because movement helps to make the baby “go down” near the birth canal for an easy

labor and birthing process.

This workshop allows us to release stuck energy, stiffness, tension, and trauma to allow
natural life force and sensuality to flow. If you want to feel less inhibited or you have a
dance background and want to feel more present or learn something new, come dance
with us.

WHAT TO WEAR: comfortable workout clothes, hip scarf (also supplied), dance shoes
or slippers (barefoot option)
WHAT TO BRING: water bottle, notebook & pen, optional: yoga mat (also supplied)

How does bellydance help in the birthing process?

• Muscles used in the birthing process are strengthened
• Less need for a C-section- the slow hip movements along with breathing, help the
baby to find its best or optimal position.
• Helps minimize pain in labor
• Reduces stress
• Aids digestion
• Boosts self-esteem

I have shared bellydance as a healing art with women and mothers for 20+ years.
