Let us lead you on a journey to wellness, confidence and sensuality with the ancient practice of belly dance. Smooth, fluid ‘Snake Arms’ layered on sharp, flirty ‘Hip Piston’ give this episode a tribal feel. Follow along as the curvaceous Manon sways with the movements, letting her whole body feel the music. ‘Expressive Hand Gestures’ give performances from even beginning dancers an authentic feel, while moves like the ‘Three-Quarter Shimmy’ will show off your technical skills. In the performance section, a trio of friends — Shivaun, Karen and Gillian — show how beautiful belly dance can be when performers are in tune with each other’s rhythms!
